Just in time for the summer season, there's nothing you need more than a good pair of Louis Vuitton sunnies...

Let's be honest. It's getting way too hot in the Middle East and if there's one thing to invest in this summer (other than stacking up on sunscreen), it's a good pair of sunglasses. And why not look fab whilst protecting your eyes from those dreaded UV rays?

Whilst finding the right pair of sunglasses can actually be quite daunting, the message behind Louis Vuitton's latest Rainbow collection of sunnies is enough for us to grab a pair (or two).

When Virgil Abloh presented the maison's Spring/Summer '19 menswear collection on a rainbow runway, the spectrum of bright colours represented the celebration of difference and variety that defines Virgil Abloh's vision. And within that range, the Artistic Designer introduced a slew of accessories that followed the meaning of the rainbow.

Hence, the Rainbow sunglasses were born. 

Beautifully crafted in Italy, there are two styles of sunglasses (square and pilot fit), that have been reimagined in a spectrum of colours — think black, camel, red, yellow crystal, blue and orange.

The collection has been adorned in transparent solid nylon, with each frame complete with a striking gradient detail — the results highlight Virgil Abloh's vision of inclusivity and versatility.

Louis Vuitton's Rainbow sunglasses are now available for purchase in stores across the globe, and online at LouisVuitton.com.

Now, take a look at the Louis Vuitton X exhibition.
