London is a melting pot of great emerging designers, and the next to step up to the plate is Bradley Sharpe, who has just released his second collection, Fall/Winter 2023‘s “Something In the Air.” While the collection itself is a beautiful portrayal of elevated classic womenswear, highly dramatic in its stark tones and nuanced nods to design greats like Yves Saint Laurent, Cristóbal Balenciaga, and Martin Margiela, there’s another element to Bradley Sharpe that we can all approach — his eyewear. 

Working with AF Reflect, Sharpe has debuted the Tipple Shades. Drawing from classic bold black frames à la Coco Chanel or Anna Wintour, for example, the pair is designed with a clear vision — to subvert even the most quintessential, classic, and legendary silhouettes.

Here, the London-designed, Italian-made pair is created with acetate, and sees an original shape flipped, twisted, and inverted to create an optical illusion — literally. For something even more unique, the designer also offers asymmetrical sunglasses with alternating lens shapes.

Four designs are available to buy now, priced at £240 apiece. Find more about Bradley Sharpe on his Instagram account, and shop the range (alongside ready-to-wear) here.
