In the summer, finding staple shades is a must for enjoying days under the sun, and opting for an all-black look is a simple way to elevate any outfit. Monochromatic in palette and innovative in design, black sunglasses strike a confident chord.

Reimagining the quintessential pigment in their own ways, luxury houses and independent brands are showcasing their fashion-forward takes on this season’s all-black frames. From Balenciaga’s bold, oversized silhouettes to CHIMI’s contemporary lightweight shapes and Valentino’s high-glamour designs, our hand-picked curation finds the best uncomplicated sunglass styles.

Playful Definition

Unquestionably striking, geometric frames radiate a unique allure with their avant-garde shape.

Part of a limited edition collaboration with Eyepetizer, the Claire x Mia Burton sunglasses feature a weightless, minimalistic frame with geometric metal rims and gray lenses.

VERSACE Ve4361 sunglasses exhibit a strong design with a thick rim and angled rectangular lenses, for a futuristic feel with signature gold Medusa medallions that radiate the high fashion house’s decorative spirit.

Revisited Classics

Pared back and covetable, square-shaped sunglasses are an iconic staple for a sophisticated outlook.

The ideal complement to a minimalistic ensemble, CHIMI 02 sunglasses are characterized by a glossy black frame and black gradient lenses. Their curved angles and polished edges showcase the Swedish eyewear house’s handcrafted touch.

Ahead of the Curve

Sporty wraparound sunglasses highlight a sleek outline for a cutting-edge feel. These sunglasses can easily be paired with casual streetwear fits for a distinctly cool edge.
