Now that Summer is right around the corner, it’s time for one thing and one thing only: sunglasses! I used to find it very hard to find sunnies that suited my face shape, but everything changed since I’ve discovered the brand Gentle Monster. It’s a Korean (sun)glasses brand and they are slowly getting more known. They sell stunning designer sunglasses and I bought my first pair in Thessaloniki, Greece. When I was in New York City, I decided I needed a second pair to add to my collection, so I bit the bullet and got this stunning beauty! Today I’m talking more about it in this New In blogpost. Hope you enjoy!
The Gentle Monster sunnies came with a pretty bag, box and leather pouch with a dust wipe. I bought these sunnies while visiting the Gentle Monster Flagship Store in NYC and call me cray cray, but I wanted to take it all with me (which I’m so glad I did, ’cause now I have a pretty bag and box displayed on my shelfs haha). I love how minimal and clean the packaging is and the pouch protects these sunnies from scratches very well!
‘GENTLE MONSTER IS A DESIGNER BRAND THAT CONSTANTLY DEVELOPS IS SELF UNDER A PHILOSOPHY OF “INNOVATIONAL HIGH-END EXPERIMENTS”’
The name of this exact model is Black Sheep BC1. Honestly, I feel like a black sheep myself sometimes, no wonder I liked this pair so much! What I love about these sunnies is the fact that the glass and the frames are the exact same color. This gives the sunnies a very cool and modern vibe, which I love. I also think this dark brown, tan color is stunning with my hair color – it adds a nice contrast! The model comes in other colors too, but I think this one looks the best!
Now it’s time to talk about the most important part: the fit of these sunnies. In my opinion, these sunnies are the perfect oversized-but-not-too-oversized sunglasses every fashionblogger, bad gal or cool chick should have. They’re edgy and make every outfit look badass instantly. They wear very comfortably and don’t slide off my nose as well (which is an issue for me having a narrow nose). I think it’s due to the fact Gentle Monster is a Korean brand and focuses on sunnies made for Asian faces. Not that I’m Asian, but I fee like Asian fashion (or Asian anything for that matter!) looks better on me. Because these glasses are so minimal, they do go with a lot of different outfits, giving your looks a lil’ pop of neutral color! I’m totally obsessed with the look and feel of these sunnies and I can’t wait to add even more Gentle Monster sunglasses to my collection!

These sunnies weren’t the only things I bought in NYC. I pretty much went cray cray when it came to designer items. I made a whole Designer/High End Haul video about and I would love it if you let me know which item was your favorite.
