The Goods: To dream of spring

We can begin to flirt with the idea of spring with this edition of the Goods

If you prefer to wear something a little more understated on your face, a dynamic frame chain is a simple and highly effective way to lift an outfit. With such a huge array of chains on the market, from fine metals, beaded delights, and chunky acetates and many of them incredibly affordable, it is great to have a few options in your armoury. Switch them on and off to pick up colours or detailing in your outfit, creating a chic look in seconds. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, this beauty from Anwulie Eyewear (an eyewear brand designed specifically for African facial features) is lovely and timely.


These incredible sunglasses are the conception of Roberta Baines, manager of Tavat Eyewear, and Francesco Nicoletti, owner of the concept store Smalti e Colori. It is a glorious collaboration between two creatives that has resulted in an assertive, progressive, and exciting collection named Punkouture. The SM05 model has that ability to appear inexorably slick and modern with a touch of punk, yet retains the elegant lines and weight of a classic retro silhouette. I will take one in each colour.
