Scandinavian Sunglass Brands
There are two major brands we think you need to be aware of when shopping for sunglasses – both hailing from the Nordic countries!
One such brand is Kaibosh, which creates cool sunglasses designed for everyday wear. Their frames are made from premium materials ensuring durability and comfort. Plus, they offer prescription lenses if you need them.
They have stores in Oslo and Bergen and are (of course) available here on Memories from Norway! Kaibosh is a bold and playful Scandinavian eyewear company that focuses on creating sustainable and stylish glasses for their customers.
They offer a wide range of frames, in colourful, bold styles. Perfect for those who want to make a splash!
Another great option is Frank Walton, which combines classic designs with modern details.
Frank Walton was founded in Oslo by Espen Kopperud, in his search to find a pair of glasses that were clean and stylish, without flashy logos and branding.
The name is inspired by the vintage glasses of the 60s, and the brand themselves say they like to imagine Frank Walton as a stylish professor in his late 50s, wearing a pair of classic turtle-patterned glasses while he teaches.
Like Kaibosh, Frank Walton also offers prescription lenses and glasses. Here at Memories from Norway you can find a selection of their sunglasses.
Things to keep in mind when buying sunglasses for summer
Of course, there are many other great sunglasses and brands out there as well, from Scandinavia and all over the world.
When shopping for shades this summer, look for features like polarized lenses (that help reduce glare) and UV protection (in order to block out harmful rays).
Don't be afraid to try different styles, even ones you initially wouldn’t have reached for – whether you prefer oversized frames or sleek aviators, we know there is a perfect pair of sunglasses out there waiting for you!
