Shanghai Tang brings us an update of their round sunglasses, inspired by 1960's Hong Kong and romance

With the summer sun grazing through, sunglasses have progressed from viable accessories to an absolute must – glam up your day with Shanghai Tang's update of their round sunglasses. An eclectic edit, the Retro Round Sunglasses collection was inspired by Hong Kong in the 1960's and traditional Chinese lenses, and the brand has reinterpreted the style with a modern touch by adding a metal brow line and mirrored lenses. They come in four different colour combinations: Silver, blue, aqua and gold lenses are contrasted with luxe tortoiseshell, inky black and contemporary clear frames.

Along with this, Shanghai Tang has launched an Instagram contest (#WallOfFame) where users are encouraged to post images of themselves wearing the brand's sunglasses complete with the mention @ShanghaiTang, and of course, the hashtag #WallOfFame. Prizes are awarded in weekly intervals, and the Instagrammer with the post that has the highest number of likes each week will win a pair of their sunglasses.

The Shanghai Tang Retro Round Sunglasses collection is now available, and the contest is open to both local and international participants alike.
