Polarized sunglasses are the trend for the southern spring–summer 2015–16, says Sunglass Hut—and it’s a prediction we agree with.
Polarized lenses help with contrast, clarity and colour perception, but perhaps most importantly, they reduce reflections and minimize glare. The lenses contain a filter that blocks almost all glare, which can be eight times more intense than sunlight. It’s an especially important function in the harsh antipodean sunlight.
The retailer notes that while the lenses are more commonly associated with sport, they are hitting the consumer market more widely, and 50 per cent of its range is now available with them.
Prada, Ray-Ban, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Vogue Eyewear are among the brands offered with polarized lenses by the Luxottica-owned retail group.
