It’s getting brighter and warmer in Melbourne, and there have several days out where I reprimanded myself for not pulling my sunglasses out – but after so many months of gloom it’s always a struggle to get back into the habit.
The Pretavoir team recently got in touch with me about their new collection and offered to send me a pair to try. I really won’t accept any item from a company unless I’d have bought it with my own money. On top of this; most standard frames are comically large on my small face. These issues are usually enough to stop negotiations with a brand but Pretavoir were keen to work with me to find frames that suited me. I was really impressed when they went to the effort of sourcing these round metal all-black Ray Bans especially for me because apparently the style is no longer being produced. They actually listened when I explained my style and concern over frame and lens size and came to the party in a huge way.
Edit Evening thinks the round shape is a great new look for me (as I typically gravitate towards cats-eye frames) and said they’re his favourite of all my sunglasses.
I’m inclined to agree.
