A Vintage Find: My Retro Sunnies from Rokit

vintage.jpgI’m currently down in London, lapping up the (dubious) sunshine and attempting to dress in a way befitting of the cramped, and quite frankly torturous, morning tube journey. Turns out they’re not too pleased about being next to someone wearing a blazer with Margiela-esque shoulderpads. Basically, the heat is ridiculous and so yesterday I wondered into Convent Garden and bought some vintage sunglasses at Rokit.

One effect I find during the summer is that I can’t be bothered to go all out with statement pieces but these are great in both respects. Even Agyness Deyn’s been glassin’-up (above.)
