Creative Visionaries:
Sunnies for Different Personality Types

Committing to sunglasses is a deeply personal choice: being that you reach for them throughout the day, they’re more of a signature piece than a run-of-the-mill accessory. Below, three timeless Gucci styles for three distinct personalities.

The
Free Spirit

She sees the world through retro-inspired rose-colored glasses and never leaves home without her trusty crystal stash. Elaborate floral patterns—whether in the form of a pretty mini dress or multifunctional silk scarf (she likes to tie it into a turban)—are the way to go when dressing for lunch at Silverlake’s veggie-centric opening, Botanica, or packing for a Todos Santos vacation.

The
Gallery Girl

She builds her art opening outfits (this month it’s the Jason Rhoades installations at Hauser & Wirth in LA) around unapologetically bold pieces—leopard-print slides, color-block handbag, and dramatic, gemstone-encrusted cat-eye sunnies. And her dining choices are equally exciting: think color-happy Sketch in London’s Mayfair neighborhood.

The
EXPLORER

She packs her carry-on with perennial necessities: a slick canvas moto jacket for plane rides and cool nights, a walking shoe that doubles as a statement piece, and a chic-ified fanny pack for exploring hands-free. Eternally classic oversized shades take her from a long weekend poolside at Le Sirenuse in Positano to NYC—where she dines at Sant Ambroeus in SoHo after a day of borough hopping—without missing a beat.
