These days, sunglasses have become a part of daily essentials for an increasing number of people. Whether as a staple piece while driving or a fashion accessory to complement the outfit of the day, a favorite pair of sunnies should actually be more than just an eyewear to pose with. In fact, if one traces back to the root of it, there is a legit reason why it is called sunglasses in the first place.
Eye is the most delicate area on the face, and so the main purpose of wearing sunglasses is to actually protect the eye from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Let’s not be confused, the shade and color of the lenses do not affect their ability to filter out UV rays—even dark colored sunglasses still allow UV rays to enter the eye.
So rather than obsessing over designer labels or fussing over the style, one better makes sure that their pair of shades is equipped with lens that block 100% of the harmful UV rays. As it is, why not find a pair (or two) that can do both.
Quay Australia—a sunglass brand born in Australia, yet made for the world—makes sure that people don’t have to sacrifice style over function when it comes to sunglasses. All of their sunnies’ lenses is made for 100% UV protection, meaning no one should worry about wrinkles or cataracts while stepping out into the sun with a pair of Quay shades.
Providing varying edgy designs to choose from—cat eye, classic rounded frame, aviator, and wayfarer—Quay caters to equally varying facial features. Some pairs even come with adjustable nose pads (as seen in Invader, Kandygram, and Tell Me Why), some with tinted lenses and an option of reflective and non-reflective mirrored lens (as seen in Higher Love, It’s A Sin, and Avalon, to name a few). One thing for sure: Each pair is well made for any lifestyle. And with some of the household names in Hollywood already putting them on—from the ever sensational Kardashian clan to supermodel Bella Hadid to singer/actress Jennifer Lopez —Quay definitely has the shade game in spade.
