Burberry's New Sunglasses Are Inspired By Their Trench Coats--Except Way Cheaper
March 5, 2014
If you’ve got the coins to splurge on a Burberry trench…God bless you. If you’re a person of more humble means that still loves the British label’s famed outerwear, you might want to check out their latest line of sunglasses, inspired by their iconic coats.
The shades have the same sort of details you’ll find on the trenches: metal hardware mimicking the hook-and-eye closures, leather temple tips inspired by the trench’s belt buckle, and, of course, Burberry’s famous check print accenting the inner arms and nosepads . So, if you can’t shill out a thousand dollars for one of their jackets, these shades are like a good consolation prize–prices start at $190, which, for designer sunglasses, ain’t too shabby.
You can shop the Trench Collection at Burberry, but if you’re also willing to spend on an actual coat to match, click through the slideshow to check out some of our favorite trench styles.
