We know what you’re thinking: why do we need sunglasses in London — what with the 4 p.m. darkness and year-round rain?
Well, we’re a shady nation with more than a few reasons to shield our eyes (walks of shame, bar brawl injuries, ski getaways — must we go on?).
But recently launched eyewear label Janz & Cooper provides the best excuse yet. Handcrafted in England, Till Janz and Benjamin Cooper’s acetate-rimmed specs come in three styles and a range of unusual colour combinations and patterns. Our favourites? Eighties-inspired tortoise shell with grey graduated lenses and on-trend round pilot-style frames with a floral-print silk inlay.
Add prescription lenses and they become essential wearing. Rain or shine.
