Sunglasses to feel awesome in by Surface to Air

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the fashionably late arrival of summer this year than with the inaugural eyewear collection of one of our favorite brands. Surface to Air’s new sunnies collection comprises 11 styles that fuse elements of the failsafe classics we love, with the kind of super fresh updates that we crave each season. The only hardship is picking your favorites, so we’ve whittled the list down to our top five styles. God we’re good to you.

  1.  Glacier Available in classic tortoiseshell or an awesome mushroom hue, these preppy frames will merge harmoniously with your entire wardrobe. Featuring vintage-style flat pins and a keyhole nose bridge, the Glacier will retain its fresh appeal from summer to summer.
  2. Zenit If achingly cool is your thing, look no further than the Zenit. Crafted from thick hand polished acetate, these bold black frames are an over-sized version of the classic wayfarer. For best results, wear with a white t-shirt, slightly slick hair and a hint of attitude.
  3. Titan A touch old world gentleman, a touch 1990s nonchalance, these circular metal frames are surprisingly flattering. The polished acetate temples make for a ‘trendy’ albeit distinguished statement. Wear with a varisty jacket or classical bomber for maximum effect.
  4. Troopers This style is all about optimal fit and perfectly contoured lines. Perhaps more of a casual statement, these frames will segue from a beach to city traipsing smoothly. We love the navy and sulphur colour-way.
  5. Vektor Inspired by Roy Orbison’s iconic 1960s rocker style, the Vektor design is not for the faint hearted. The flat top wayfarer shape feels pretty retro, though the reflective mirrored lenses and thick hand polished acetate frames bring them back to 2013.

Birkenstock is taking on Crocs with its new $150 Lutry clog
Be honest: You're tired of Crocs and are glad Birkenstock did this
Birkenstock Lutry Clog

"You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." Some fashion trends show up, and they just don't go away. They grab ahold of a specific part of our societal collective psyche and refuse to die. Crocs seem to be one of these trendy items that just won't go away. They took the idea of the wooden clog made famous by their medieval craze in Europe and replaced the wood with silicone. They added to the garment by adding a backstrap, allowing the wearer to put it into "Sport Mode," where they can wander Starbucks to their heart's content without losing their intricately decorated silicone slip-on.

Then you have brands that will take a fashion trend, refusing to die, and give it a little class, a little panache. You have a brand that will take what you would normally add flair to (like a bad version of Office Space) and add a simple twist of elegance that not only makes the trend more enjoyable but ensures that it stays around. Birkenstock is now going head-to-head with Crocs in an attempt to add some luxury to the world of the modern-day clog by introducing their Lutry Clog.
