All our lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, granting you the best possible protection against the sun.
You should always be extra careful about this. Sunglasses’ dark shades cause your pupils to dilate, allowing more UV rays to enter your eyes if they’re not stopped by a proper UV filter. As a result, wearing poor quality sunglasses ends up being more harmful than not wearing any at all…
Sunglasses lenses are categorised by darkness of tints, ranging from 0 to 4 according to the amount of light going through — 0 being the lightest and 4, the darkest.
Most of our lenses are category 3, the most suitable for everyday life. But we also have a few lighter-colour category 2 lenses (for instance, our beloved Isabelle in champagne/blue). These are ideal to look dapper in overcast conditions, but not for sunbathing by the pool.
All our sunnies come with polarised lenses, at no additional cost. These lenses reduce glare and eye strain, enhancing visual acuity and comfort, as well as improving colour contrast. They are especially useful around water, or when driving — though it’ll be trickier to look at LCD screens, so watch out.
