Pick of the best: round sunglasses

By  June 22, 2012

In the past few seasons fashionable folk have sported Raybans Wayfarers and then Clubmasters, aviators and oversized bug-eyed styles, but for Spring/Summer 2012 there’s only one shape that will do and it’s round. Illesteva is the A-list’s brand of choice; everyone from Daniel Craig to Solange Knowles has been snapped wearing their trademark circular shades. We’ve rounded (ha!) up some of our favourite sunnies for this summer.
