Shady September : Anna-Karin Karlsson

It's September yes but if last weekend was anything to go by we don't have to say bye bye to the shades just yet! I fully intend to see Autumn in wrapped up in a cosy soft scarf, classic cape, a tres chic trilby and a pair of statement sunglasses. The evenings might be getting longer but that doesn't mean the days aren't filled with crisp sunshine.

It has to be said us Mice are suckers when it comes to a good set of shades, we've bought you Retro with RaybansShades with Sass and Jimmy does more than just Choos blog posts ALL dedicated to sunglasses. Well now here's one more to add to the 3BM collection, this time Anna-Karin Karlsson takes centre stage - fierce, fabulous and blows all eyewear boundaries - this Swedish designer injects the sun in sunglasses in my opinion!

Her route to fame began with a job in a London opticians at the age of 19 and she very quickly stepped up the career ladder designing eyewear for the rich and fashionable and even Royalty. Suave and sophisicated Saville Row men of the world used to pay Karlsson a visit after being suited and booted - she was the real deal when it came to custom made eyewear with flair and still is...

We've anticipated the question upon your lips ... where can we get our mits of a pair of Karlsson's creations? Simple - none other than the one-stop shop for all things fashion - Net-a-porter of course!
