The fall months are a time to bring out the earthy wardrobe tones that go neglected for much of the year - that goes for sunglasses, too. The advent of wooden sunglasses alongside the numerous new designers who have emerged in recent years presents an opportunity for eyewear experimentation this fall. While the summer months are arguably limited to sunglass staples and brightly colored frames, the fall months call for tortoiseshells and heartier yellows, browns, and blacks. Read on for the NYGlass.com picks for Autumn 2013.
Shwood’s handmade wooden sunglasses merge precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship, epitomized by the Canby frame shown here in Zebrawood.

The classic wayfarer styling and refined aesthetic of the Canby lay the groundwork for an entire wooden eyewear revolution, allowing them to top the list of our shades for Fall ‘13. These are appropriate for both the casual eyewear enthusiast as well as those with deeper collections.
Next we take a look at a two-tone frame by RAEN, the Garwood Froth.

With black upper rim & arms and creamy beige accents, this frame can best be described as smooth and transitional. If you were to distill everything RAEN stands for into a single frame, the Garwood would be it: strong lines, bold color block, refined, repurposed, and cultured.
Next we take a look at the Lector sunglasses in turtle by Triwa.

This is a classic tortoise frame made in hand cut acetate with contrasting temple tips in yellow, with brown lenses from Optics by Carl Zeiss Vision. These can confidently serve as go-to daily drivers for both men and women. Their very high build-quality and beautiful detailing nicely compliment the wardrobe of the cardigan wearers amongst us and those who appreciate attention to detail.
