Paul Smith

Paul Smith nails the rounded shape with translucent detail in this understatedly stylish number, which features just a touch of brand DNA in a logo plaque on the temple.

 

Bottega Veneta

A 3D rim and silver metallic detailing encircle the lenses, and a lasered Intrecciato motif makes for an iconic finish.
