You can always count on Alessandro Michele of Gucci to give us some vintage glam, and the house’s new “Hollywood Forever” series does not disappoint.

The limited-run of sunglasses will be available for just two weeks — just in case you needed convincing anymore to pick up a pair of the dazzling sunnies. Gucci’s range is inspired by the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, with each sporting a whimsical twist that elevates the Hollywood glam a step further by adding a variety of treatments to each pair.

For example, the round-frame sunglasses (which were presented for the “Ouverture” collection), feature a gold metal frame that’s been hand-encrusted with pavé crystals, violent-tinted lenses that are surrounded by more crystals, and Gucci scripture on the bridge.

The ’50s-esque cat-eye frames are made from black acetate and combine pavé crystals with the signature interlocking “GG” emblem on the arms, while the black rectangular frames take on a similar approach but add pink lenses instead of the former’s gray lenses.

Rounding out the collection are the geometric-frame sunglasses made with gold frames and more crystals, and a standout pair of love heart-shaped shades that feature a mother of pearl-effect gold frame and pavé crystals around the pink lenses.

Take a look at the Gucci “Hollywood Forever” sunglasses collection above, and purchase all the pairs now on Gucci’s website.
