Fashion: Shine in the shade

if it ain't broke, don't fix it – the collaboration between optical titans Cutler & Gross and avant-garde label Maison Martin Margiela was such a hit first time around that the brands have decided to try it out again. This season's offerings include the signature Margiela framless shades, with large round lenses almost cartoonish in size, and a subtle, modern aviator shape with clear plastic frames. What do you mean the sun isn't shining? From £310, maisonmartinmargiela.com
