Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, are the Italian dream team behind D&G – the affordable luxe label. With Madonna as their campaign pin up girl, D&G are riding high in the fashion and advertising stakes. Madonna is the perfect advocate for the label’s sexy, flirty Sicilian style, with her Italian roots and her innate sense of dressing. D&G’s list of celebrity supporters is endless and includes ladies such as Scarlett Johannson, Katy Perry and Alexander Burke and leading men like Josh Duhamel and Justin Timberlake.
D&G have been in existence since the mid Eighties and have enjoyed huge success across all their portfolios. Their watches in particular have proved very popular with both sexes. D&G watches are classy and exceptionally well-priced. Shade Station have an amazing D&G watches collection, any of which, would make a great Christmas gift for a loved one.
The following are a selection of our best-sellers;
D&G Watch Prime Time
All that glitters is not feminine! This affordable polished silver aluminium wristpiece, has a steel bracelet and an oversized round silver dial, surrounded with diamante. The face is embellished with a pattern of a diamante, as is the black D&G logo in the centre. This watch is perfect for a confident, stylish man with a penchant for a little bling!

Summer is officially here, the sun is shining and we couldn’t be happier! With the warmer months comes the usual smorgasbord of amazing festivals to get your hedonistic thrills at. Whether you enjoy moshing at ‘Download’, country pursuits at ‘The Green Man’, teenage kicks at ‘V Festival’, fancy dress at ‘Bestival’, glamour at newbie ‘Vintage at Goodwood’ or the mystic of ‘Glastonbury’, you must ensure you’re dressed for the occasion.
Festivals, fashionable summer gear and cool sunglasses all go hand in hand. Maybe it’s the influence of Gaga or perhaps Dita Von Teese, but this summer is all about kooky and vintage. With styles from the Fifties and Sixties making a comeback, we predict this year’s festivals to be awash with vintage shaped sunglasses in a cat’s eye style or small round frames, oversized sunglasses in reds, greens and brown and retro-looking shades.
The festival season kicked off with April’s Coachella Festival in California, where a host of celebrities dazzled with their fashionable threads and on-trend sunglasses. Kelly Osborne was spotted wearing small round framed lilac sunglasses, Katy Perry went retro in angular black frames with a bold white stripe across the top, Dita Von Teese personified Fifties elegance in oversized brown sunglasses with graduated lenses and Kate Bosworth dressed to impress in classic Ray Ban Aviators.
Aviators and Wayfarers from Ray Ban transcend fashion and will always be popular and current. For classic sunglasses you can’t go wrong with either of these styles for festival frolicking. The same goes for oversized glam shades. Designers like Gucci, Bvlgari, Versace, D&G, MDG Sunglasses, Chanel and Pucci all have great sunglasses for summer goddess style. On the other hand if you’re a seasonal type of girl with a desire to look fabulous and ‘now’ – take a leaf from Kelly O’s book and opt for small round shades. This style was all over the spring / summer catwalks and looks great in pastel coloured frames teamed with a floral frock or playsuit. Or you may want to play the vintage diva with cats eye shaped sunglasses – again a strong trend on the catwalk this year. Look to brands like Prada and Marc Jacobs to achieve this look.
We’ve got our Big Chill tickets and our festival sunnies sorted. Now it’s just a case of praying for sunshine! Here’s hoping….
