Shades of Italy

shades-of-italy.jpg

Designers often find inspiration in the most unlikely places — it is said that a check shirt Joey wore in an episode of Friends sparked the late Alexander McQueen’s creativity while compiling a collection.

It should come as no surprise, therefore, to find that Italian brand Persol cites the graphic architecture of a villa — Casa Malaparte — on the jet-set isle of Capri as the innovative source for its latest frame design, the Capri Edition 3024-S.

Available in five frame options: tortoiseshell, blue, green, black and Havana (pictured), and a variety of lenses, the Capri Edition follows the same linear detailing seen in the Casa Malaparte, built in 1937 by Italian Rationalist architect Adalberto Libera.

Capri Edition shades in Havana with blue tinted lenses £230 by PERSOL; available from Sunglass Hut 0844-264 0860
