Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana opened their very first boutique 20 years ago in Tokyo. Today, as one of the leaders in fashion and luxury goods, D&G continues to make trends with their unconventional vision. Somehow, these two Italians managed to turn distressed jeans and corsets into high fashion. D&G fashions have a reputation for sexiness, and their eyewear collection follows suit.
The extensive D&G collection of sunglasses for 2009 is the very definition of sexy Italian chic. Perhaps their most over-the-top model is the DG4040G, with temple pieces encrusted with Swarovski crystals. These are sunglasses you could get away with, assuming you’re Sophia Loren, but never fear, the 2009 collection offers numerous great styles for mere mortals as well.
One example of classic styling that can work for many looks is the DD 2200 0B5. This unisex style is very understated and is available in Tortoise frames with Brown lenses, or Black frames with Dark Gray lenses. This is a style that can take you from uptown city streets to the beach without missing a beat. While some D&G styles are quite brazen with their logo placement, this model has a simple, silver D&G on the left temple piece.
For women with more outspoken style, the best selling DD 6019 05/6G will let the world know that when it comes to sexy Italian sunglasses, you’re unwilling to compromise. With Silver frames and Gray Silver Mirror lenses, this style features prominent temple pieces in the shape of the letters D&G.
For men who demand style but don’t want a pair of sunglasses that wears them, the DD 6036 252/71 is perfect. With Gold metal frames and Gray-Green lenses, this is what classic Ray Bans would look like if an Italian had invented them.
Women who simply want to look glamorous can look no further than the DD 8024 508/8G. With White frames and Gray-Gradient lenses, you’ll look like you belong on the Amalfi coast with a cool drink in your hand. The DD8024 501/87, the DD8024 623/73 , and the DD8024 704/8G are variations on this style with Black frames/Dark Gray lenses, Havana frames/Brown lenses, and Fuchsia frames/Gray-Gradient lenses, respectively.
For men who prefer a sportier look, the D&G Sunglasses DD 8039 501/8G with Black frames and Gray-Gradient lenses will go great with your weekend wear and will look right at home whether you’re riding a bike or grilling steaks. These feature a silver D&G logo on the temple pieces.
If any variation on “sexy” is your style, you should definitely consider Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses as part of your summer wardrobe. They’re the Italian way to get your chic on!
