Finlay & Co presented their effortlessly cool collection of sunglasses at the Wolf & Badger trunk show in our Mayfair store last Saturday. The brand only launched in 2012 but its classic yet playful styles, appropriately named after London streets in some of the city’s coolest areas, such as The Carnaby, have quickly become a favourite among the fashion crowd. Celebrity fans include David Gandy, Rita Ora and Henry Holland and the brand has already showcased at London and Milan Fashion Weeks. After just one year since their launch, Finlay & Co won the coveted title of accessory designer of the year at the 2013 Scottish Fashion Awards where the likes of Christopher Kane were also winners.

The label’s classic retro shades are handmade from varieties of high quality sustainable wood to achieve a bold and quirky look whilst doing good for the environment. The trunk show was the perfect way to spending a sunny Saturday afternoon and left me dreaming of wearing the entire collection on a tropical beach somewhere whilst sipping on a G&T and nibbling on pineapple. A pair of Finlay’s would without a doubt be a great way to celebrate the recent sunny London weather and the apparent start of summer.
