RETRO AND REFINED, EXPLORE THE TED BAKER SUNGLASS EDIT FOR HIM

For the gents, Ted introduces an array of modern retro mash-ups featuring oversized logos and ingenious layered construction.

A style that will have you hook, line and sinker is JARL TB1574 (above). Taking inspiration from Ted’s love of fishing and hasty retreats, the classic panto silhouette has been given a radically modern overhaul thanks to front-mounted flat lenses and visible fixings. Additionally, the tinted lenses match the acetate’s colouration which includes new rich shades of Cognac and Beer. Elsewhere, the frame is perfectly period. Temples give fleeting glances of colour blocking, turned wire sections and end tips with fishing float motifs.

Last but not least, gripping the streetwear logomania trend is HENDRIK TB1573 (below). This navigator-shaped sunglass with plenty of attitude features an oversized profile, reminiscent of masculine ’80s style. In detail, its striking milled logo temple carefully carves into thin layers of laminated acetate for a finished look.
