Made in the Shade with Retro Frames for National Sunglasses Day

Hunting & Gathering

Pictured L-R: Spectacle Gallery Classic Collection Valencia, Purple-to-yellow; Moscot Arbita, Champagne

Seeking rose-colored clarity and reprieve from the Sarasota summer sky, you slip on a pair of Valencias to see more clearly across the blazing tennis court. Spectacle Gallery’s in-house Classic Collection of crafted lenses offer crisp vision quality and sophisticated style for a day of outdoor activities in the bright summer sun. 

To channel your inner Monroe and Hepburn, Valencia’s 50s inspired frames provide a classic cat-eye silhouette in translucent acetate with purple-to-yellow fade. Serving up timeless femininity and glamour, Valencias are perfectly paired with a retro-inspired tennis set or swimsuit.

Or, transport back to the Golden Age with the gold-glazed Moscot Arbita style shades. Reminiscent of vintage-athletic sunglasses, the Arbita has thick, rounded frames sold in the statement shade, Champagne. The versatility of this color and its dark lenses make the glasses an easy transition piece when headed to the clubhouse for lunch after a tough round of golf or a quick dip in the pool.

In honor of National Sunglasses Day on June 27, grab a pair of these 50s inspired finds at Spectacle Gallery, 1286 N. Palm Ave., Sarasota, 941-365-5606, or online.
