Apart from my obsession with shoes and bags, sunglasses are very high on my list of things I have collected. You will never find me without at least one (generally two) pair of sunnies in my bag.
I want to introduce to you my new favourite sunglasses brand LOCAL SUPPLY who are a small Sydney-based design team with a big dream: the vision to create sunglasses for locals everywhere.
The Local team says, “We wanted to create sunglasses for locals, like us. Sunglasses that we could wear to our local beach, park, pub, or concert – sunglasses that don’t break the bank (and don’t feel like you bought them with $20 of petrol) all without having to worry about breaking or losing them.” Amen.
I love a great story behind a businesses beginnings, and this one is a favourite. The journey began with four besties who started making sunglasses after one too many pairs of expensive sunglasses was the victim of a big night out.
Enter, their Spring / Summer collection which combines classic styling, in a deconstructed version of the iconic wayfarer silhouette which suits most face shapes and anti-scratch polarized lenses, which is so important considering the harshness of the sun and its effects on your eyes.
Their campaign stars stunning model/VJ Kate Peck who brings her effortlessly cool edge to their very first campaign. The brilliance of the brand is that each piece is totally unisex, and the variety comes in a huge array of fresh colourways including some killer reflective lenses that are oh-so on trend for this summer.
The best part? All the sunnies are $59.95 and you can snap them up David Jones stores and www.localsupply.com.
