Glamorous Shades at Banana Republic



The first concept of sunglasses dates back to the time of the Roman Emperor Nero. The emperor used polished emerald green gemstones to reduce the sun’s glare while watching gladiatorial combats. In the 12th century, smoke-colored quartz lenses were worn by the Chinese judges. But their purpose was different – they were not to shield the eyes from the sun but to hide their expressions until they delivered the final verdict! Today anyone who’s out in the daylight must have one. So, the next time you’re out on a sunny day on the streets or at the beach, remember to put on a pair of shades.

Sunglasses instantly add style and sophistication to any look. The fashion icon, Nicole Richie admitted to teenvogue.com that she can’t live without sunglasses. She owns more than 200 pairs including every pair she has designed. The biggest fan of sunglasses however would be Elton John who revealed that he owns 250,000 pairs of sunglasses including the novelty ones.
