Since the design house’s founding in 1985, Dolce & Gabbana has garnered the upscale youth market. Milan, Italy is known for fashion but this company has clawed its way to the top of the heap. Currently merchandised in America’s trendier shopping venues their success is a story of rags for the rich.
Beautiful sunglasses add alluring elements to anyone’s best summer outfit. There’s more than this year’s top fashion to be sure in the design of sunglasses. This country now has sunglass manufacturing standards for the prevention of minimal levels of harmful ultraviolet rays. Other countries have similar rating methods. Standards on some eyewear about impact resistance also exist. There is not a doubt about the hours of engineering required to develop popular summer eyewear.
There’s a genuine homage to the 1950’s sunglasses in Dolce&Gabbana’s current line. Ruby red plastic frames are reminiscent of Marilyn (Monroe not Manson). Rhinestones haven’t had this much of a workout since Liberace died either. Retro has long been a trend with the youth market. The sunglasses lines of D&G as well as many other houses are following this retro trend straight into the mainstream fashion market.
When glitz is not appropriate Dolce&Gabbana sunglasses are still a sound choice. Tried and true styles like aviators and variations on those traditions will be at home at a pool side power lunch. Whether Hollywood or Silicon Valley there is a D&G style that feels right. Visiting a Jackson Pollock exhibit with friends? D&G sunglasses styles will not be outdone by contemporary art.
Eclectic and artistic, D&G clothes and accessories would outshine Dale Chihuly public glass displays. Women who want to look as if they just walked out of the pages of Vogue all know that there is no more modern look than that of D&G. Leave dowdy behind and join the ranks of trendsetters.
The look of D&G sunglasses is one that must be accompanied by the handbags of the same line. Each is a work of art. Nothing bolder exists on the fashion horizon than a crocodile handbag in outrageous colors. Truly no one who carries the bold look of this haute couture imperative should leave home without D&G sunglasses this summer.
Most of the D&G sunglasses can be found in the neighborhood of $200. There are certainly more expensive designer names than the label “DG” on sunglass frame arms. None are as unique as this popular maker. For less flamboyant beauty try style #18913. Four color combinations are available but in beige frame with brown gradient lenses (both “Dolce” and “Gabbana” spelled out in rhinestones); it is surprisingly sophisticated.
In America it is increasingly the case that a brand is obscure until it can be found on Ebay! Dozens of different D&G sunglasses styles are currently on the web auction site. This is a sure sign that D&G is now collectable as well as merely beautiful. When shopping at Rodeo Drive be prepared to pay a pretty penny for D&G. For those who are patient enough to follow an eBay auction or impatient enough to pay the “buy it now” price–a bargain is the reward.
