When Yves Saint Laurent founded his eponymous label in 1961, he quickly established a reputation for forward-thinking and innovative design, winning him a legion of admirers in the process.
That ethos persists six decades later, and now Saint Laurent ranks as one of the fashion industry’s leading institutions.
One example of the founder’s inspirational ethos is the SL 606 Sunglasses, which reconsider shape and form to create a bold silhouette.
Adroitly crafted in hardwearing acetate, this angular and geometric pair feature low and angular tinted bio-based nylon lenses that offer 100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays and contrasting borders for added style.
A raised nose bridge atop the lenses offers an attention-grabbing touch, and thin metal arms resting on a C-shaped bracket sit comfortably on top of your ears.
The complementary colourway provides an exemplary foundation to style this pair into any ensemble, and the maison’s iconic logo embossed into the arms ensures immediate brand recognition with a high-end flourish.
