Turning Japanese. Yes, you've been turning Japanese. Don’t think so?

Drove to work in your: Toyota.
Today's lunch: Sushi.
Your cell phone: Sony.
Your cell phone charm: Hello Kitty.
Your weekend plans: Teppanyaki and a little karaoke.

So it’s really no surprise that the land of the rising sun is responsible for your soon-to-be-favorite line of designer shades.

Created specifically to fit Asian faces, Scandy Eyewear sunglasses have ultra-extended nose grips to keep them sitting snugly and comfortably up top instead of sliding down your nose all day.

Available in sleek metallic aviator, quirky cat-eye, and classic, plastic oversize styles, the glasses feature playful details like rhinestones and cut-outs, and come in nearly every color under the sun.

Let’s face it, these win by a nose.

Scandy Eyewear is available at Le Grand Marqet at Ala Moana Center, 1450 Ala Moana Blvd., Honolulu, HI, 96814, 808.955.6560.
