Louis Vuitton unveils new signature sunglasses, photographed by Juergen Teller.
The Louis Vuitton silhouette is just as much about accessories as fashion: the essence of personal style is all in the details. Taking on a versatile urban edge, frames come in rounded retro shapes and neutral colours - from gradations of beige and taupe to warm 'honey' tortoiseshell, a nod to the house colours.
Design elements include tiny studs and streamlined hinges, evoking the house's trunk making heritage, as well as metallic monogram end tips and a tonal engraving of the house logo on the lens.
