Shanghai Tang x AM Eyewear Collaboration

The most essential accessory in your summer wardrobe is probably your most loved pair of sunglasses. Not just for the obvious reason of shielding your eyes from the pesky sun but to make a statement to the outfit you are wearing. The collaboration between Shanghai Tang and the Australian brand AM Eyewear realise this and that is the main feature of their bold and innovative collection.

This online exclusive limited edition collection has been inspired by Chinese style glasses. Known for their round frames, a style dating back to the 12th century, these sunglasses have been worn by such historical figures such as the Last Emperor of China. These glasses used smokey quartz and other elaborate crystals to create iconic and malleable glasses. The glasses were used by judges from the Chinese courts, in order to hide their facial expression when in the courtroom.

Similarly, this collection incorporates the heritage and has created a new iconic look from its rich history.  The modern twist comes in five different colours and combinations. AM Eyewear stated that ‘the sunglasses are all expertly handcrafted from design to production for a true sense of integrity and luxury.’ This collection is now available in store and is perfect to make your summer vacation full of bold statements.
