How Many Brands of Designer Sunglasses?!

Sunglasses & Fashion

I wanted to know what we were dealing with when it came to fashion sunglasses (I was in the middle of searching out the new Stella McCartney* sunglasses as touted back in April/May last year – which I’ll get to later) and on one site selling designer Italian-made sunglasses there were 120 brands!

Every brand you can think of just about!  In addition to the brands you know as glasses, spectacles or sunglasses (like Ray-Bans) there were fashion designers, (couture & high street) as expected, but then sporting, pens & even motor brands!  It just goes to show how much the market is worth and just how high a profile a pair of sunglasses can be – given that every product under a brand umbrella re-inforces the others.  Personally, I only ever buy Polaroids!

I’ll give you the list but you need to go to the continued bit – the list’s just too long!  Brand names include… Adidas, Alain Mikli, Alexander Mcqueen, Alviero Martini, Arnette, Baci & Abbracci, Balenciaga, Bikkembergs, Bluebay, Blugirl, Blumarine, Bolle’, Bottega Veneta, Boucheron, Braccialini, Brooksfield, Bulgari, Burberry, Byblos, Calvin Klein, Carrera, Cebe, Celine, Cerruti, Chloe, Christian Dior, CK, D&G, Diesel, Diesel – 55dsl, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana, Donna Karan, Dunhill, Emporio Armani, Ermenegildo Zegna, Escada, Etro, Exte’, Fendi, Ferragamo, Ferrari, Fila, Frankie Morello, Furla, Gant, Gianfranco Ferre’, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Gucci, Guess, Hugo Boss – Boss, Hugo Boss – Hugo, Iceberg, Imatra, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeckerson, John Richmond, John Varvatos, Just Cavalli, Kenzo, La Perla, Les Copains, Levi’s, Lozza, Mandarina Duck, Marc By Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs, Marinella, Maui Jim, Max Mara, Max&Co., Mercedes, Michael Kors, Mikli, Miss Sixty, Missoni, Miu Miu, Momo, Mont Blanc, Moschino, Nike, Nina Ricci, Oakley, Oliver Peoples, Oxydo, Paul Smith, Persol, Pierre Cardin, Pirelli, Police, Polo Ralph Lauren, Porsche, Prada, Prada Sport, Pucci, Ray-Ban, Replay, Revo, Roberto Cavalli, Romeo Gigli, Rudy Project, Serengeti, Silhouette, Smith Optics, Stella McCartney, Sting, Swarovski, Sweet Years, Tag Heuer, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, Valentino, Versace, Versus, Vivienne Westwood, Vogue, Vuarnet, Web, Winx, Yves Saint Laurent

*It’s amazing that even stockists mis-spell her name – alternatively as MacCartney!
