The Queen's go-to sunglasses brand unveils an unexpected collection - and millennials will love them

These Silhouette vintage-inspired shades are fit for a fashion queen

We absolutely love the Queen’s iconic style, from Her Majesty’s matching hats and coats in a rainbow of shades to her ever-present handbag. But we have to admit that we never expected the 94-year-old royal matriarch to be a fashion influencer for the millennial set. Our perspective has definitely changed though with just one look at the new range of cool sunglasses by the Queen’s go-to eyeglass frame brand, Silhouette.

The Queen, 94, has long been a fan of eyewear brand Silhouette 

The SUN20 Silhouette sunglasses collection from the Austrian brand, which was founded in 1964, is a must-see if you are a fan of vintage styles, as the new range has a very cool retro-inspired feel. 

The 'TMA Futura' model is 1970s-inspired and looks straight out of Charlie's Angels, the butterfly-shaped 'Titan Accent Shades' take us back to the 1980s – in a good way! – and 'Accent Shades' sunnies are a round frame that is right on the 1990s trend.
