 2 Magnetic pussy

Purr like a kitten and bring out your inner Catwoman with these cute cat-ear sunglasses by local designer Rene Chiu. The ear flaps are attached with magnets, making it easy to remove if you are going for a simpler and sleek look.

 3 Magenta eyelids

This flashy pair of electro-pop sunnies sports its very own eyelids for added protection. Add a bit of drama and fashion flair to your eyes.

 4 Tangerine tint

This pair of orange sunglasses is locally designed by Yoke Optical and is inspired by Hong Kong’s landscape. Each pair is named after our very own city streets, such as these Baileys. And for an extra bit of fun, you can add magnetic clip-ons to jazz up your style. We like the golden clips to match the orange glow of the frame.

As the name suggests, these circular sunglasses by Henry Holland are versatile. Flip one or both lenses whichever way you like to achieve your desired look. It’s a little bit John Lennon and Harry Potter mixed together. What isn’t cool about that?
