Summer is coming closer and that means: sun! As I may have confessed before, I am absolutely crazy about swimwear in summer. But another thing I am obsessed about is sunglasses. I love wearing them to complete my holiday look or just to give that extra touch. Some time ago I discovered a really cool eyewear brand: Blueprint. A Dutch label that doesn’t only sell sunglasses but also snowgoggles.
This Amsterdam based brand is run by ‘the Blueprint boys’. Since they are real surf and snowboard lovers they are also a fan of the lifestyle around these extreme sports. They mainly love the eyewear trend in these lifestyles but unfortunately, the prices for these designs are often quite high. They came up with an idea to design fashionable and affordable eyewear and just like that, Blueprint eyewear was born.
The inspiration for their designs often comes when they are travelling. The Blueprint boys travel around the world to discover the latest trends on eyewear. Their most favorite countries to get inspired are Milan (what else?), South Africa and of course their own hometown Amsterdam. They love to get inspired by the sun, but of course they also get some inspiration when they are on the slopes. Blueprint designs models for both boys and girls but actually all glasses are quite unisex, so if you buy a present for your boyfriend, you can also wear it yourself! How perfect does that sound?
I fell absolutely in love with the Elba Tortoise Ice, a classy light model with light blue shades and a freckled design. I am so excited to wear it this summer and to show it to you guys! And the best thing is, the shades are only €50!
The Blueprint boys dream big. Their brand has become quite popular lately and they still have a lot of ideas that they’d love to carry out. They also revealed a small secret to me. Apparently they’re bringing a new model onto the market this summer! So make sure to check out their website or Facebook page, because I am sure this model will be breathtaking too and who knows, maybe you’ll run around with a pretty Blueprint model on your nose this summer?
Ps: this campaign is the best E-V-E-R!
