DOLCE&GABBANA "GRAFFITI SUNGLASSES ARE AS FUN AS DRAWING ON WALLS"

"GRAFFITI SUNGLASSES ARE AS FUN AS DRAWING ON WALLS" 
 
 
You’re a super cool, insanely stylish senior in high school, and you and your besties Domenico and Stefano have a bunch of shiny black acetate sunglasses in different shapes: cat-eyes, butterflies, wayfarers with gradient lenses; clear-lensed eyeglasses; oversized round frames with gold trim; and a boxy frame especially for the boys. Because you’re rebellious and artsy, you’ve written all over the frames with white and red micro-points, scrolling cute stuff like hearts and 4EVER and stars and BACI (‘kisses’ in Italian). And of course it says Dolce & Gabbana everywhere because you’re not in high school. And you don’t know Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana personally (although a considerable portion of your wardrobe does have their names on it.) Nope, you’re just a girl/guy who’s doing your thing and #adulting so you can afford those hot new D&G sunglasses with the graffiti design. And if you find that you love the six shapes of the new D&G shades so much that you want to wear them seven days a week, keep in mind that the frames are also available in leopard print, majolica (traditional Sicilian pottery), and black/white stripes with roses.
