a pair of stylish city-slicker shades

Whether they’re swanning around in Sorrento, pounding the pavements in Paris or sunning themselves on a beach holiday in Mexico, the fash pack don’t need much of an excuse to put their sunnies on. As of this week, everyone Mr & Mrs Smith have met has been sporting eye-popping eyewear.
