ZanZan Eyewear’s Sunetra Sunglasses

Posted by KayScreen Shot 2014-08-29 at 12.18.15Our stylish friend Laura Bailey kindly gave Thandie this gorgeous pair of Sunetra sunnies at Thandie’s ‘leaving to LA for now’ lunch recently, and we both agreed that they belong in the ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ world. Sunetra means ‘the one with beautiful eyes….irresistible!

Zanzan_Sunetra_sunglasses_eyewear_rose_sideOriginally from Sydney Australia, founder Megan Trimble (out of necessity under the Aussie sun) developed a love of sunglasses, and collecting vintage Cazal, Emmanuel Kahn and Christian Dior couldn’t have given her a better education for this uber-cool brand beloved of London’s chicest.  Meeting her business partner (Gareth) who shared her passion for shades and ebay sealed the deal.

They both moved to London and noticed that all of the best vintage sunglasses were ‘Handmade in France’, whilst all the designer brands around at the time felt cheap and of lesser quality. They started researching manufacturers who could achieve the results they’d grown used to from their vintage finds, and Zanzan began!

“The vibe/ethos of our brand is a cauldron of all our interests and passions” says Megan, “Gareth has a voracious appetite for reading and we both love autobiographies-currently my head is stuck in Diana Vreeland’s. During her time, quality reigned, privileged woman had three fittings for night gowns! We wanted to bring some of those slower values of luxury to Zanzan.

Quality is really important to us. We want our sunglasses to last for a long time and to become part of the wearers memories.”
