I don’t fall in love often, but when I fall . . .I fall hard! This is now the case with my new addiction—Shanghai Tang sunglasses (and optical glasses)! I know what you’re thinking ‘they’re just sunglasses.’ But you’re wrong; they are so much more than that. Not since my first pair of designer shades have I found a pair of glasses that fill me with as much excitement as these.
To start, the craftsmanship is superb and something I haven’t seen since I landed a
pair of vintage Christian Dior glasses. Secondly, each pair of glasses embodies opulence and luxury by synthesizing ancient Chinese motifs onto the frames which feature real jade. Select models also have real silk woven into the frames, for a stunning and unique effect.
It is the belief of the Chinese that by layering their lives with lucky images and
objects, they are increasing their chances of happiness and prosperity. By adding classic Chinese symbols like the Lotus flower, Phoenix and gold coins to these ever so chic modern frames; the juxtaposition of the classic with the modern offers every wearer an extraordinary fashion experience reminiscent of Chinese royalty and nobility.
I can’t imagine wearing any other line at this point. It literally transforms outfits and can make you look great even on your worst day. I promise, once you go Shanghai Tang, you won’t go back!
