‘Tis the season for sunglasses, and unless you’ve been walking around with a paper bag over your head, you should know by now that sunglasses in all colours, shapes and sizes have been welcomed to party alongside hair garlands and jelly sandals this Summer.
This is also the season where we shake off our hats and scarves to enjoy the outdoors; lush green grass, voluptuous trees, clear blue skies and the sounds of chubby bumble bees. In the flurry of picking our Summer wardrobes and enjoying some of the amazing nature and weather our country offers this season, we forget that it needs protecting.
But there are some fashion angels out there who are enabling us to do all three of the above. Ethical fashion is becoming more and more popular as years go by, and no brand demonstrates this more than Colin LeslieEyewear.
I was incredibly lucky to be allowed to review their Tortoise sunglasses, which after having done some research, I discovered had been spotted on celebrity fashionistas such as Emeli Sande, Olly Murs, CraigRevel Horwood and Tinchy Strider.
As on trend as I felt at this point, my eco warrior brain was happier to know that celebrities such as these are supporting a brand that makes the welfare of our planet its main priority. With recycled acetate frames, bamboo temple arms that are individually hand crafted, and a pouch made from recycled plastic drinking bottles, these glasses are the epitome of Trash Fashion.
Simplistic yet striking in style, the selection of sunglasses available are classics with a modern twist. You know I'm a sucker for anything monochrome, so these are my new babies. They go everywhere with me.
If you've discovered any ethical fashion brands that you love, I'd love to hear about them. Let me know in the comments below.
