Dolce & Gabbana’s latest project features three pairs of reversible and detachable lens frames to team with one round and gold-rimmed pair of sunglasses. This means that even if you buy only one of the former, you’ll still end up with a pair of shades with two looks. The clip-ons come in Leopard Print/Burgundy, Stripes and Roses/Black, and Sicilian Majolica/Brown Havana.
