You might be surprised to discover that the first sunglasses were not designed to protect the eyes from the sun, but were used in the 12th century by Chinese judges to hide their expressions. It was not until 1929 that a company called Foster Grant produced the first modern sunglasses and this accessory soon became an important part of fashion rather than just a practicality. The style of women's sunglasses has changed greatly in style over time, with different shapes, materials and colours. At Santa Eulalia we have models in pink gold, tortoiseshell acetate and hand-sculpted titanium. Different designs to ensure that you can find the perfect women's sunglasses for you from brands such as Matsuda and Linda Farrow.
