Purple sunglasses by Taylor Morris

There are some things in life that are just inescapably cool: the iconic poster for Almost Famous is one of them.

Remember Penny Lane in her mirror shades, reflecting purple haze all over the place? Awesome.

I was reminded of that very film icon moment this morning when I became aware of the purple Vredefort sunglasses from the Taylor Morris capsule collection.

Purple is a hot shade for the new season and these limited edition stunners are just so perfect for winter wearing. With a 60s/70s rock chic vibe, smack the look with just another hint of plum about your perso: could be in the form of a print or a cheeky little colour block (I’m thinking little black dress, purple ankle socks and black winter sandals, just so you know).

Only 100 pairs of these psychedelic sunnies have  been made (if you’re lucky enough to get one you’ll see they are numbered) and if you don’t fancy shopping online you can pick them up in person from Harvey Nichols.

Let me know if they instantly turn you into a Band Aid…
