The same way Karl Lagerfeld played with pretty sheer layers for his tech-inspired Spring Summer 2014 collection, this eyewear line too flirts with layers. These Fendi acetate sunnies get upsized, with a contrasting see-through layer that makes the eyewear look bigger, bolder and yet still wearable. It’s kudos to the classic cateye shapes and the crystal clear layer that lets you get away with wearing such big frames.

If you need more convincing, just look at how Canadian songstress Kiesza has worn hers. Props goes to this young pop star, who would wear these snazzy Fendi sunglasses with a cropped black outfit and a feminine fuchsia dress without batting an eyelid. Directed by Ruth Hogben, this trippy new Fendi video shows Kiesza singing and beating out her best dance moves and well, generally having a blast in Fendi shades and dresses.

“It was really amazing for me to be part of this video," says Kiesza, ever the stylish fashionista herself. "It’s something that I’ve never done before, something completely new … I love fashion, I love to go into different shapes and I love to try new things. I like to see myself in ways I’ve never seen before. In the end it was really interesting because it was totally me.”
