Suzy Levian continues to grow and evolve her brand to meet contemporary women’s style demands and individualism. Her entire collection, from jewellery to home décor, is designed to be worn and displayed today and well into the future—classic items relevant to a modern lifestyle.
From being a jewellery designer, working in her family’s business, the only girl and youngest in a family of five children, Suzy Levian decided to branch out on her own to create a jewellery collection that appealed to strong, independent women that desired pieces they could wear every day, accessible at different price points.
Suzy Levian’s love for colourful, gem-intensive designs inspired her affinity for colourful frames. Her ability, through her plans, to empower women to feel attractive and bring out their best selves inspired the motifs. If you look closely, you will find that the colours and patterns in her sunglasses can also be found in her jewellery collections.
The designer believes that the shape of sunglasses expresses a sense of style and a feeling of strength and should always make a personal statement. Within her new collection, there is no clear definition of each shape; the sunglasses represent a fashion statement that appeals to each woman on different levels.
“Some people wear sunglasses to feel hip, cool, and confident. Contrary to the idea that people seek to ‘hide behind tinted lenses out of insecurity, some feel more attractive in a set of shades because confidence itself is an alluring quality”. Like all of Suzy Levian’s collections. The sunglasses are replete with “the secret diamond” crystal hidden within them, encouraging women to discover the diamond within themselves.
The collection includes a range of shapes that tend to be iconic in the sunglasses category throughout the 20th century, including eye, aviator, large squarish and oversized round shapes—some more serious, others with a sense of play and whimsy.
