On & Around the Street


Chloé is bringing back the sunglasses chain – and it’s fabulous.

Glasses chains get an unfairly bad rap, what with their popularity with Dame Edna and absent-minded grannies prone to misplacing their specs, but hear us out – they are definitely a thing this summer.

The ever-stylish Leandra Medine of Man Repeller fame is a fan of the sunglasses chain, and they have been popping up in the Insta feeds of some of the chicest ‘Grammers on the www.

We love Chloe’s version, which comes courtesy of Natacha Ramsay-Levi, who made her debut as Chloé’s creative director in September last year. They’re made from gold-tone brass and have handy T-shaped tips that thread through holes in the arms of the brand’s shades. Plus, it can be adjusted using the lariat charm and worn either in front or behind your neck, according to your styling preference.

Wear them with the brand’s eccentric Poppy sunglasses for a proper style statement.

Available now at Chloé, 152-153 Sloane St, SW1X 9BX.
