Perfect your wardrobe by finding the designer that suits your style and personality. Sophisticated, quirky, or absolutely fabulous; whatever your style is there’s a designer out there creating sunglasses just for you.
Ever found your bored self trawling through Facebook quiz after Facebook quiz? Which Disney princess are you? Where should you live in the future? What type of pasta are you? or Which designer best suits your style? As comic and trivial as these quizzes are, some of them do raise good questions (although the answers they give seem to be plucked out of thin air.) Knowing the brand that perfectly suits your identity can transform your wardrobe immediately. Rather than take a Facebook quiz though, we’ve put a guide together for you, detailing the individual character of our favourite brands so you can find the one to suit you. B Sunglasses’s partners each have their own unique identity and they display this through their choice of eyewear. We’ve used them as examples of how a brand’s personality can be perfectly matched to your own.
The Cazal name was established in 1975: an acronym of the initials of the designer and creative genius Cari Zalloni. Zalloni once said that Cazal had to be unmistakable from the other side of the street. Without a doubt this is true; each piece is striking, unique and extravagant. Cazal frames are instantly recognisable for their attitude, distinct geometric cuts, and intricate temple details. Zalloni defined the hip-hop style of the 80s and his legendary designs still remain iconic and on trend today.
Bold and unusual, Cazal eyewear is suited for those who love progressive style. If you’re decadent, daring and like straying away from mainstream trends, then the Cazal brand is for you. DJ Denney travels the world touring his electronic sets in beautiful places. His recent tour of America saw him dotting about from city to city playing for big crowds. Denney’s style is always kept fresh with a pair of bold Cazal frames. They are full of attitude and perfectly matched to Denney’s slick style both on stage and off. Denney wears the Cazal 6004 Vintage Square Sunglasses in Black Silver.
Miu Miu is frequently described as the playful little sister of luxury fashion house Prada. With a quirkier more colourful palette, Miu Miu is the fresh and youthful side of the same coin with just a hint of its refined fashion heritage shining through bubblegum pink packaging, glitter finishes and geometric eyewear designs.

Saint Laurent is a designer of firsts. After his breakthrough in 1961 with his own brand, he quickly began to rule the industry and revolutionise fashion. Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to introduce ready-to-wear fashion. He was the first to create a tuxedo for women. And, he became the first living designer to have a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1983. Modernity and cutting-edge design is still key to the fashion house today. Saint Laurent sunglasses are sleek and sophisticated, with bold uses of colour and striking angles.

The King of eyewear is undoubtedly Ray-Ban. Their legacy of innovation and originality of design is outstanding and it’s simple to see why Ray-Ban have been able to establish themselves as synonymous with eyewear. We have to be honest, Ray-Ban’s style suits anyone because their variety is so great. Their history of iconic wearers includes Hollywood stars, fashion icons, designers, and even royalty. Ray-Ban established the Aviator, the Wayfarer, and the Clubmaster as we know them today. Ray-Ban never stops designing. Although they have a long-legacy of classic style, each season they update and reinvent the original designs in innovative ways. Ray-Ban truly offers a pair of sunglasses to suit everyone too. If you’re into vintage glamour then add the Jackie Ohh’s to your wardrobe. Or perhaps festival style is your thing meaning a pair of colourful round lenses are perfect. Alternatively, if your everyday style is understated yet slick then a classic pair of Wayfarers are for you. Modern and vibrant designs feature in the Blaze collection. Or cutting-edge lens technology is offered in by the range of Chromance frames. The style possibilities are endless.

Each pair of Ray-Ban’s are suited to every occasion, whether you’re dressed up or casual.
Another style icon who always opts for a trusty pair of Ray-Ban’s is singer and actor JJ Hamblett. The Union J star knows that Ray-Ban round metal frames add a slick finish to a classic suit style. The round frames are iconic, hinting back to John Lennon’s original style, and are still a leading frame today for any occasion. JJ’s round frames are a pink brown colourway, but Ray-Ban constantly offer new vibrant and daring colours in this classic style. As we’ve said, when you think of sunglasses, you also think Ray-Ban. Their long legacy of advanced design makes them a fit choice for any wardrobe.
