Thom Browne SunglassesThom Browne is adding women's sunglasses to his stylish fashion range.

Thom Browne's first women’s sunglasses collection will pay tribute to fashion’s glory days, with frames inspired by the styles of the forties, fifties, and swinging sixties. Shapes include an exaggerated cat's eye, round frames, and oversized squares. Each design will be available in basic black, classic tortoiseshell, and a unique navy and white color scheme. While Thom Browne's name will grace the frames the branding will be very discreet. Look out to his signature on each frames tri-color tip.

This isn’t Thom Browne's first foray into sunglasses. His male sunglasses collections have been popular for years, and he'll release his second collaborative line with the quirky Dita label in the middle of the year. But this is the first time we’ve seen the American designer creating a line just for the ladies. No doubt his experience with the men’s eyewear will serve his well as he takes on more feminine frames.

The Thom Browne women's sunglasses range will hit Barney’s New York department stores and Thom Browne boutiques this May, just in time for summer. At $475 a pair they certainly aren't cheap, but accessories boasting designer pedigree rarely are!
