Let the heat of summer ignite all our senses. This time of year is all about outdoor activities, fresh air, sun-soaked days and life's little pleasures under the sun. But, most of all, it's a season that requires you to shield your eyes from UV rays.
Here's a look at this season's sunglasses and optical trends.
Visor sunglasses are a must for those who live an active, on-the-go lifestyle like cyclists, runners, or hikers. This style protects against the sun’s UV rays in all conditions, from all angles. They fit the curves of your face perfectly, providing your visual field a full peripheral coverage. These sunglasses are unisex and come in various shapes and colours, so you can keep it sporty—in style!
Seeing as biking is this season’s unofficial national sport, sunglasses designed for this activity are ultra-important. Bike-friendly glasses are characterized by mirrored lenses and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. These are offered in a range of tints, made to fit the cyclist’s preference. Beyond that, these lenses protect against difficult weather conditions, insects, and most importantly, limit the amount of UV rays that reach the eyes thanks to their protective coating.

No matter if you’ve got a drink or book in hand—a laidback schedule suits you well. Whether you’re seeking sunglasses or eyeglasses to complement the weather, this season’s shapes have a distinctly Miami Vice inspiration. In lightweight metals or acetate, double-bridged frames make a structured statement. The result is a timeless, vintage-inspired look.
A season defined by your moods and desires—because summer is all about taking things easy. Hats, printed scarves, and simple styles are wonderful, but sunglasses are the hottest accessory. Made in featherlight metals, XXL frames with rounded curves add a boho-inspired touch to your look.
Nikon’s Chromalis photochromic lenses keep up with DJ Abeille Gélinas.
She's active, she's creative, and she's someone who's constantly on the move. Outdoor performances are undoubtedly a part of her routine but come summertime, catch Abeille spending her days prepping at the computer or enjoying quality time with her family.
That's why she loves the Chromalis photochromic technology, allowing her to go about her day without thinking twice about changing her glasses. When worn indoors, the lenses are completely transparent, but they take on an elegant, translucent anthracite tint once exposed to the sun. As if summer wasn't colourful enough, these photochromic lenses come in a wide variety of colours too.
This summer's star frames come in hexagonal shapes, double-bridges and aviator styles.
Give titanium frames a warm welcome. Titanium is a super-quality material that is incredibly resistant, extraordinarily lightweight and ultra-comfortable.
This season’s spotlight frames pay homage to the Pantone colour of the year and summer, too: YELLOW. Warm colours and resilient frames that are as stylish as Abeille Gélinas.
