For those of us Down Under the weather is finally heating up, and as you revive your daily kit for Summer it’s time to arm yourself with some essentials. Guarding you against harmful rays, yet lending a sense of cool to any look, we’re looking to Prada for our shady business.

Coming out with a fresh new line for the season, Prada has served up a range of classic shapes and colours to take anyone’s fancy, and if you want to update your standard look we suggest a tinted lens. Throwing it way back to the 18th century (nope we’re not lying), the coloured shade was once used for corrective purposes and as it made its way to the modern era, coloured sunglasses have taken over the industry.

Combining the classic aviator shape with an easy-wear hue, the Prada rendition features 100 percent protection against UVA and UVB rays, with a minimalist frame and nose-pads for additional comfort. Pair with cool tones and linen for a go-to summer uniform.
