THE CHOSEN FEW: Wooden wayfarer sunglasses
Pop on a pair of tree branches and you’re good to go. Come on, everyone’s doing it.
1. Alpine Skateboard Colour Blast
Crafted from repurposed maple wood skateboard decks, CR-39 polarized blue mirrored lenses, and stainless steel spring loaded hinges. The halfpipe of shades.

2. Makawear Whitehaven rectangular polarised sunglasses
These are slightly squashed wayfarers, with a zebrawood finish and a sliding top magnetic bamboo case. Very rad.
Price: AED356, www.desertcart.com
3. Panda bamboo sunglasses
From the original bamboo sunglasses company, these are environmentally friendly, sustainable and handcrafted – as ethical as click and buy can get? There’s more. For every pair you purchase, they donate a pair of prescription glasses and a medical eye exam to a person in need. See it as Toms for eyes.
