FOUREYES

Our next set of Style Ambassadors come as a four. We’re so excited to welcome the stylish guys from New Zealand fashion and lifestyle blog, FOUREYES, to Clearly.

 

FOUREYES

Rocking sunglasses from both our Derek Cardigan and Joseph Marc collections, we’re sure you’ll agree how great the Kiwi bloggers look in our shades. We caught up with FOUREYES to find out where they get their style inspiration, who they’d like to go on holiday with and just how many pairs of sunnies they’ve all got (turns out it comes to 40 combined!).

What inspires me: I love to see and explore new places, so I draw a lot of inspiration from travelling.

My sunglasses collection consists of: 10 pairs

I chose the pair of sunnies I’m wearing because: I like the classic shape and the fact they have a slight twist with half the frame being clear.

A tip on picking out the perfect pair of shades is: I think the fit of the sunglasses you choose is really important. Also choose something you feel comfortable in and something that you think reflects your personal style.

Frame Style: Derek Cardigan 7016 Sunglasses in Black Fade

I think the fit of the sunglasses you choose is really important. Also choose something you feel comfortable in and something that you think reflects your personal style.

My favourite online source for style inspiration is: I love to explore Pinterest.

Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? As a general rule I would probably say nay but if it’s something that fits you perfectly like a plain pair of trousers or a blazer, why not?!

My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: Sports luxe

If I could go on holiday with anyone, it would be: My partner

I would describe my personal style as: Simple and classic.

What inspires me: Many things, from blogs and  fashion shows to food and furniture.

I chose the pair of sunnies I’m wearing because: I like the use of clear acetate – a neat modern twist to a classic, retro style.

A tip on picking out the perfect pair of shades is: Don’t rule out cheaper brands of sunglasses. The quality can be just as good as more expensive designer labels.

What inspires me: I am inspired by the people I photograph… I’m always so fascinated by the way they have styled themselves in the items they’re wearing.

 My sunglasses collection consists of: 10 pairs

I chose the pair of sunnies I’m wearing because: I had been looking for a pair of clear frames for a long time and feel like these were a great fit and I can wear them with almost anything.

A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: I’m into statement frames that are bold and eye-catching but I always try and keep in mind exactly what I will be able to wear them with. Sunglasses are a great accessory that you can wear with almost anything most of the time.

Frame Style: Joseph MARC 4034 Sunglasses in Transparent

I’m into statement frames that are bold and eye-catching but I always try and keep in mind exactly what I will be able to wear them with.

 My favourite online source for style inspiration is: I love style.com for online inspiration

 Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? Yay. I am definitely guilty of this, especially with those basic pieces that you need multiple colours of.

 My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: I’m really liking robes that you wear as daywear and also loose suits.

 If I could go on holiday with anyone, it would be: My partner

 I would describe my personal style as: Simple yet bold.

My current style muse is: Tom Ford

Favourite city to go shopping is: Definitely Paris

Danny

Name & Nickname: Danny

Home base: Auckland, New Zealand

Current occupation: Graphic designer & blogger at FOUREYES

Instagram: @foureyesblog

What inspires me: Movies, books and odd old items like a retro telephone or pair of sunglasses. Also, as a street style blogger I get a lot of inspiration from the people I’m photographing daily.

My sunglasses collection consists of: 12 pairs

I chose the pair of sunnies I’m wearing because: They’re a classic, go-with-anything shape with such little details and I love the almost black but still translucent colour.

A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: Don’t get too fixed on one particular style or shape. Try everything. You never know what will look awesome on you.

Frame Style: Derek Cardigan 7015 in Shadow

Don’t get too fixed on one particular style or shape. Try everything. You never know what will look awesome on you.

My favourite online source for style inspiration is: When I can find a chunk of time,  I really like catching up on all the new season collections from designers on Style.com.

Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? I do it for basics. If you find something good then yeah, why not have it in a few colours?

My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: I’m loving the painterly prints and bold primary colours we’re seeing a bit of lately.

If I could go on holiday with anyone, it would be: My partner & friends which is convenient as we have a trip planned! Or Beyonce.

I would describe my personal style as: Pretty eclectic, I tend to get fixed on a  certain style for a few months and then switch to something else. It’s often just inspired by a particular piece of clothing or accessory I’ve most recently become fixated with.

My current style muse is: Grace Jones

Favourite city to go shopping is: Sydney

Final word: Don’t litter.
