What happens when two of our favourite fashion brands partner on collection of city inspired shades?

Zimmermann is the once-little Aussie brand is currently killing it on a global scale, with a regular spot showing in New York Fashion Week and stores in London, Miami and New York opening this year. And then there's Cutler & Gross, a brand is renowned for its craftsmanship approach to frames, with a sophistication unlike any other sunglass label in the world. While at first glance, the two labels seemingly have little in common, thanks to a just-launched capsule sunglasses collection we can now see they share values of cutting-edge design, attention to detail and an unabashed love of colour.

"I've been a long-time fan of Cutler & Gross and when the opportunity came up to collaborate on a capsule collection, I jumped at the chance to work together," says Zimmermann Creative Director Nicky Zimmermann. "The colour combinations and styling embody so much of our aesthetic, and I love the way it's come together."

Using Zimmermann's five flagship stores in London, Sydney, Miami, New York and Los Angeles as the basis for the range, this five-piece capsule collection is imbued with the spirit of each city. Featuring acetate frames which have been crafted in Cutler & Gross' Italian factory, the range utilises modern colour combinations of olive green, rose gold, cinnamon brown and rose, to name a few. Created as a sort of celebration of Zimmermann's 24th and 25th store opening worldwide, the range is the perfect way to accessorise the Zimmermann dress, playsuit or bikini hanging in every girl's wardrobe. Bring on spring.

The Zimmermann x Cutler & Gross sunglasses collection is available in select Zimmermann boutiques worldwide and also at zimmermannwear.com and cutlerandgross.com now. Prices start from $510 a pair.
