When you can’t go forwards, go backwards. It’s an old adage as true in modern design as it is in the mindset of the England’s football team’s coaching staff. But unlike the monotonous passing of our nation’s midfield that is likely to be exposed this summer in Russia, there’s a lot of fun to be had in sunglasses, as brands look to revitalise a range of classic optical frames. One such brand is Kaibosh, the innovative Norwegian eyewear label that rebels against the old and conservative way of designing, marketing and buying sunglasses by offering beautifully designed eyewear at revolutionary prices.
“People will stare. Make it worth their while,” reads the motto of eyewear label Kaibosh. But, as well as promoting self-expression, Kaibosh also rebel against the norm by offering beautifully designed eyewear that blends contemporary design with unique colourways and reversible frames. Best of all, Kaibosh’ eclectic range of eyewear includes a range of different designs, colours and shapes that make it easier to mix and match your glasses depending on your mood – a concept, albeit relatively obvious, is something that a lot of us overlook. However, Kaibosh are certain in their belief that the owning a multitude of sunglasses to suit your mood on that given day is very much the future. But with Kaibosh’ playful, stylish collections featuring an array of names such as ‘Eyes Wide Open,’ ‘Biblio’ and ‘Modern Tortoise,’ it’s hard to know where to start looking. Plus, with the brand’s all-new collection welcoming in even more new designs including the optical ‘Sydney Harbour Bridge’ frames – ‘developed especially for guys who have problems finding glasses to fit across their nose’ –  it's safe to say that Kaibosh is multiplying month-on-month. As ever, we're here to help you out, so below we have picked out a few of our favourite sunglasses styles from the latest arrivals from Kaibosh.

Kaibosh Wet Forest Round & Round Remix Sunglasses It’s easy to talk about building a collection of multi-functional sunglasses without giving you a starting point. But the best pair to get you started with is the classic Round & Round Remix Sunglasses – a unisex, slim-line design are guaranteed to see you through this season and beyond. Crystal Shiny A Scandinavian In New York Sunglasses There are certain items that we stay loyal to despite the changing of the seasons, trends or time. Kaibosh believe that these ‘A Scandinavian In New York’ sunglasses are one of those particularly special pairs of sunglasses that you’ll stay devoted to. The simplistic, sculpted shape takes inspiration from the New York way of life – hence the Sting-inspired name of A Scandinavian In New York – and is the perfect embodiment of Kaibosh' alternative design identity. Dirty Olive Shiny Negroni At Noon Sunglasses Kaibosh’ Negroni At Noon provides the best of both worlds; and by that we mean they blend a classic unisex silhouette that is wide enough to fit varying face shapes, with sculpted and slim dirty olive acetate frames.
