Looking for a French alternative to the Wayfarer? Check out the “Tom” Sunglass from Lanvin-Paris.

Okay, so you like the shape of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer, but would prefer to have something with a little French flair?Lanvin-4121

Check out the “Tom” sunglass from Lanvin-Paris.

We love the classic, Audrey Hepburn-Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s inspired shape of this sunglass.

While it certainly takes some styling cues from the classic Wayfarer, Lanvin put their own subtle twist on this sunglass, rounding the frame out just a touch and adding nice little accents, like the delicate striping across the tops of the frames and temples.

While this isn’t a huge sunglass (compared with some of the big, Jackie-O styles we stock), it does have a nice lens height, which makes it ideal for dropping in a prescription progressive lens.

Lanvin Denim CollectionEven better, the frame comes in four colors: Grey, Black, Tortoise and Caramel (the tortoise and caramel are our favorite shades), with available matching lens tints.

This frame also makes for a cool, retro-style eyeglass if you drop the tint and put a clear prescription lens in it. It doesn’t work for everyone, but on some faces it can be a surprisingly hot-looking eyeglass.

Match these babies up with a sleek Lanvin-Paris trench coat or even a pair of jeans from Lanvin’s denim line to complete that just off-the-runway look.

For the budget-minded lover of fashion, these Lanvin sunglasses would look great with the Burberry Technical Taffeta Ruched Coat currently on sale at Nordstroms or even this blue Merona military trench from Target.

We currently have all four colors of the Lanvin 4124 “Tom” sunglass in stock at Urban Optiques.
