Think of any style icon and undoubtedly, they donned a great pair of sunglasses. Jackie O's infamous round shades became her signature, Audrey Hepburn (as Holly Golightly) will forever be remembered for her Oliver Goldsmith Manhattans, which she wore with an evening gown whilst window shopping on 5th Avenue, Steve McQueen's Persol aviators were an indelible, fashionable statement and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen count sunglasses as important a wardrobe piece as oversized coats.
The power of sunglasses is second to none, which makes discovering the ideal pair akin to the search for a perfect LBD. Saint, a collaboration between AM eyewear and photographer Pierre Toussaint, aims to fill that spot. With only three frame styles, the St. Lucia, St. Barts and St. Tropez, they riff off classic shapes, each featuring a tiny cat eye and rounded bottoms. These are sunglasses to encourage your inner old-Hollywood star: Instantly flattering, paparazzi-defying, and already beloved by It-girls around the globe.
