Gucci sunglasses, like those of many other big brands, are hit or miss. Generally they go the safe route and save the more original frames for the runway. Today we'll look at a few styles only seen on the runway and a few of the more common frames they have out for Spring/Summer 2011.
Gucci Runway Sunglasses 2011
This is the first frame that caught my eye on from their photo section for 2011, however you won't find it in the list of available frames. It's a shame, because it is one of the nicer frames they have now. This begs the question, why display this frame when it's not for sale? I know they want to generate interest for the season with some sharp frames.
Gucci Sunglasses 2011 Spring Summer GG 1636/S
Gucci Sunglasses 2011 Spring Summer GG 3160/S
These two frames are not bad looking but have a lot of G's all over them. Though not terribly looking, I could do without the crazy branding. GG 3160/S above is a sweet-looking cat eye shape, but I prefer minimal frames with this kind of style.
So why do so many brands show stuff at the show that you'll never be able to buy?
Another lost frame.
