Candies For Grown Ups!

Whilst not quite recovered from the fashion-frenzied hangover from all next season’s shows the flash bulbs went off once more across town for the launch of Sunglass Icon in Delhi’s luxury Emporio Mall.

Baroque and gold leaf detail in the D & G range

Sunglass Icon is the posher big sister of Sunglass Hut…Ray Bans are the cheapest sunnies on offer in the product range.  With Brit Bad Girl Jade Jagger splashed over the front and advertisements sporting baroque D & G sunglasses the launch was certainly eye-catching.

I arrived at the event with fellow blogger, Nupur Dayal of Indian style blog Joos.  We became friends as our butt cheeks squeezed together at the crowded Delhi shows.  With tangible excitement we entered Sunglass Icon and didn’t know where to begin.  A candy store for the eyes there was hardly a pair we didn’t try on and squeel with delight at.

The range of brands all in one store is wonderful.  The only other places you’ll find such a huge concentration of excellent sunglasses in such a compact space are airports and Selfridges.  Tiffany & Co, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, Miu Miu, Prada, D & G, Armani…all glistening in the spot lights screaming PICK ME!
