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 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.
After launching her fine jewellery collection and creating offshoots of the brand’s precious metals and gemstones, including silver and cubic zirconia pieces crafted with the same precision and looked natural, she began designing accessories for the home and the body. Her latest endeavour is sunglasses in many shapes, coloured lenses, and frame motifs. “I strive to be the designer who creates head-to-toe pieces that every woman will want to own, including jewellery, handbags, accessories and now sunglasses,” says Suzy Levian. “I have always loved being able to dress up and down, and many times that includes wearing shades, depending on my mood and what I choose to wear on any given day.”
Suzy Levian 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 what each shape means; 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.
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.
Her Suzy Levian Women’s Light Pink Oversize Square Lens Silver Accent Sunglasses evoke a 50s glamour while still being of the moment. Pink is one of the most relevant colours seen this year, and Suzy Levian has built a collection of shades based on pink sapphires for various tones of the pretty, feminine hue. The soft pink frames and darker pink lenses complement each other, and many different skin tones. Floral motifs blossom on the edges inspired by the botanical jewellery in the collection.
