Prada is renown for sophisticated craftsmanship and a modern vision of high fashion. The 16RS is no different. This fashion forward eyewear encapsulates the Prada ethos perfectly. These are sunglasses that will enhance any female wardrobe. The 16RS boasts an unmistakable style that will perfectly fit a casual outfit. Or, add a fierce edge to your work attire.

It is hard to overlook the 16RS’ design. Love them or loathe them, the 16RS could class as over-the-top. But, that is in no way a negative. In fact, over-the-top style sunglasses are a summer trend for 2018 as stated by the women’s magazine, Cosmopolitan. These Prada sunglasses are heaven for those who love oversized sunglasses. The lenses are large, and the full rims accentuate the size of these butterfly-shaped frames. The unique hexagonal shapes undoubtedly will be the envy of those who look for edgy clothing styles. In addition to the size, these lenses are UV400 lenses. Therefore, these sunglasses will protect the eye from UVA and UVB wavelengths.

The frame lives up to the standard of Prada’s uncompromising quality. The frame combines a high quality of acetate and metal. The majority of the frame is acetate. This makes the 16RS durable and lightweight. Furthermore, this makes the bold new angles, that this frame experiments within this design, easier, sharper and more appealing. The temples are made of a thin metal which is encased within acetate. The metal temple features a mesh-like pattern, which hides behind the classic Prada logo. This detailing is a welcomed subtlety to an extravagant frame.

The 16PR thrive from the bold, definite lines that are ever present. The angles around the lenses and butterfly shape will suit an oval-shaped face best. The strong lines will add angular shapes to the face. Furthermore, the temples continue the angular theme. This keeps the look of the frame synonymous from all angles. The temples widen, then thin again closer to the temple tips. This adds a welcomed juxtaposition to the oversized front.
