Up-and-coming jewellery designer Delfina Delettrez, daughter of fashion doyenne Sylvia Fendi, has designed her first sunglasses collection in collaboration with French eyewear designer Alain Mikli.

Delettrez has customised four styles with quirky signature motifs such as spiders, frogs, human body parts and silver charms. Standouts include the Link style (HK$14,900) where the arms are replaced by chains in leather, or sterling silver in silver, gold or oxidised silver; the Spider (HK$6,310), a pair of red shades with a spider hovering over the lens; and the Eye (HK$14,900), which features a Murano glass and enamel silver eye at the end of each arm.

Each style is available in limited numbers at Alain Mikli boutiques, including the one at 28 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2523 0103
