SHANGHAI TANG 上海灘 – New Sunglasses Collection THROUGH A CHINESE LENS
Shanghai Tang presents a stunning new range of men’s and women’s sunglasses named ‘Through a Chinese Lens’. The collection captures the modern Chinese aesthetics and spirit of the brand, distilled into contemporary and playful eyewear perfect for all occasions this summer and beyond, be it hopping around town or sun-kissed vacations.
The versatile line features a total of 12 designs each in multiple colourways. A creative mix of materials, vivid pop colours and intricate detailing echo the distinctive style and elements. The use of lightweight stainless steel wire, hand-painted in bold, metallic colours using a lasering technique resulting in intense and durable shine. This laser-coloured wire echoes the iconic contrast piping often seen on Shanghai Tang’s renowned ready-to-wear items, including Tang jackets and silk pyjamas.
Design in a statement-making angular butterfly frame, ‘Pollen’ is flanked with lasered wire on the outer rim for a standout impression. This style’s lenses are uniquely mounted in front of the frame, creating a clean, modern rimless impression. ‘Felix’ is another key style from the collection, featuring a chic oversized cat eye frame constructed with metallic lasered wire seamlessly encased within the acetate front. The clever design perfectly balances the contrasting materials and creates a playful semi-hover effect at the sides of the frame. Also not to be missed is ‘Spotlight’, with coloured wired inset around the lenses within the acetate frame, catching the light wherever you go. Inspired by Chinese scholars, ‘The Poet’ takes the instantly recognisable round frame and elevates this classic shape with a modern spin in lightweight stainless steel with a chic matte finish.
All styles in the ‘Through a Chinese Lens’ collection feature signature Shanghai Tang elements, including engraved brand logos, star icons and motif hardware. The box packaging comes in four pop colours for customers to choose from.
