There is a frenzy of designer sunglasses hitting the stores this spring. Our favorites out of the bunch are Stella McCartney's. Here are five reasons we love them:
1. She's morphed classic shapes ever so slightly to make them just hip enough to look new and right for now.
2 The prices for designer shades can run high, but hers are definitely reasonable.
3. Her pals love them: Gwyneth, Gwen, and Sofia Coppola, to name but a few.
4. Her use of color in the frames is not overpowering and adds glamour to the face.
5. Gotta love an accessory that's going to last years and not months in your wardrobe. What a concept!
$190 to $250 at Ilori, 138 Spring St., nr. Wooster St.; 212-226-8276.
