Calling all sunglasses lovers i have discovered the most amazing,versatile,protective and very cool sunglasses! I'm sure most of you are aware of the well known Ice-Watch brand, known for their array of watches in super cool colours and spotted on the arms of many celebrities. I for one loved them when they were first released and i still have a white and purple watch which i have had for almost 3 years and which are still going strong now. When i heard that Ice-Watch were launching their first collection of sunglasses to be called Ice-watch Eyewear i was very excited!

Firstly i will fill you in a little about the range.The glasses are unisex and are part of a 20 piece collection. They come in two different shapes, i opted for the mood version which is the retro style for all of the quirky fashionistas out there and they also come in the pulse shape which is the timeless classic frame. They are also available in 10 amazing different colours, ranging from the bright and daring to the more conventional colours such as white and black as you can see from the above picture. These glasses will be perfect for the summer, whether you're heading to a festival,lounging by the pool or doing something more adventurous. They have a 'protection with category 3 anti-UV polycarbonate lenses, ensuring safety as well as comfort with its soft silicone finish.The frames are ergonomic, lightweight and adapt to all facial types. They are produced in Europe without hinges and screws, so allowing them to withstand any deformation'. If you also need to wear contact lenses or standard glasses these can be glazed with your prescription lenses so they really do cater for everyone.
So what do i think of them? The claims that they make fully live up to their name. As i said previously I've tried Ice-Watch before so i know that they are good quality and are fully worth the money. What i love about these glasses is that they don't contain hinges, with so many cheap sunglasses i have had the screws loosen only after a few wears meaning that they don't fit as well as they should. The fact that its one size fits all is brilliant as i often also find it hard finding glasses to fit my face. They fit perfectly and because of their soft rubber like finish they don't rub or leave those annoying sunglasses marks on the bridge of your nose. I literally cannot recommend these enough, they also come in the most amazing packaging,very similar to how the watches are also encased. Although, i think for on the go i would transfer these to a smaller sunglasses case. I have spent so much money on cheap sunglasses in the past that break, don't have sufficient protection and are just 'okay'. At only £59.50 they are a very reasonable price for such a good quality pair of sunglasses and with the option to pick what shape and colour you want their is something to suit everyone's tastes!
So all you fashionistas out there can expect affordable,long lasting,functionability and bags of style with these! I do feel rather cool whenever i wear these and cannot wait to wear them on holiday!
