You may well have already slathered yourself in sun cream, or even sought out sun protection for your hair. But now that the sun is well and truly shining, it’s important to protect your eyes from its bright rays too – and we know just the fashion-forward brand to turn to.
Finlay & Co first hit the headlines last year, when Meghan Markle wore a pair of their frames for her one of first public appearances with Prince Harry, at the Invictus Games in Toronto.
The Percy sunglasses, which cost £120 with Meghan’s grey lenses, are the brand’s bestselling style – but they’re not the only set that’s been put into the spotlight by a celeb.
Most recently, This Morning host Holly Willoughby shared a picture of herself sporting some Finlay and Co sunnies on her Instagram account, garnering endless comments from her social media following in the process.
‘❤ the glasses!! Need them!’ exclaimed one fan, followed by another who wrote: ‘You know I am now going to NEED some of those glasses! ❤’
Holly’s Henrietta sunglasses are slightly more expensive than Meghan’s pair, with a price tag of £140. However, when you consider than the cost of designer glasses can quickly spiral into the hundreds, Finlay & Co’s range is surprisingly affordable for an exact celebrity match.
And it’s not just Holly and Meghan giving the British brand their support – Finlay and Co frames have been spotted on the faces of supermodels Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne, actress Sienna Miller and even fellow royal Pippa Middleton – although co-founder David Lochhead said that Meghan’s endorsement has the most profound affect on sales.
‘Around 75% of all pairs sold online in the last six months were of the Percy style. We’ve had lots of customers coming in-store and asking to try the Percy style on,’ he revealed to HELLO magazine. ‘The impact from Meghan wearing has been on a different scale.’
