Emma Mulholland Brings Her 80s Surf Game to Sunglasses

Emma Mulholland makes her own rules. If others are looking to minimalism, she’ll look to iguanas fighting in the Mexican desert. It is fitting then, that as most of us are heading into winter, she’s designing a line of sunglasses.

You've seen the shades from a distance already. They were on the runway at her show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, along with many other eye-catching pieces. In between the binder clip bags, wig hats and pastel sequined swimsuits, it was often difficult to know where to look. (Artful eye assault is a recurring theme for the designer.)

But those shades though. They’re part of a collaboration with local label Pared, and look so much better up close. Riffing off the same 80s John Huges and Melanie Griffiths' Working Girl inspirations as the rest of the collection, some skew simple, with classic fronts, subtly mirrored lenses and lightning bolt arms, while others staunchly have the look of 80s surf and street culture.

Best of all? You can buy them now. Pair with a bowl cut wig for peak Mulholland girl steez
