The most important and useful accessory during the Summer months? Sunglasses right! How many pairs of sunglasses do you own? Do you buy a new pair each season? Do you like a specific brand, model or color? Do sunglasses have to match your outfit? How important are they to you? Well, I don’t leave the house without sunglasses during summer and fashion week, (even in february when it’s dark, cold and rainy just to project my tired dark- circled eyes). I love sunglasses and love to buy them. I even don’t know how many pairs I own. I’ve lost count. I have to deal with the problem, that almost every model suits my face shape. Even the retro-futuristic iconic Futura sunglasses from Silhouette.
Silhouette has reinterpreted its classic model to produce a modern take on the original design introduced during the ABBA years, and is selling them exclusively on Matchesfashion.com. First launched in 1974, the style gained huge success and celebrity: Elton John and Sylvia Kristel were among the famous faces to don the iconic eyewear, while even Barbie had her own pair. Originally designed by Dora Demel, Futura sunglasses have now become something of a collector’s item. I’m one of the lucky owners. Next to me Tali Lennox (campaign model) owns a pair of the Futura 2014 collection.
I was invited to join the Silhouette and MATCHESFASHION.COM exclusive relaunch cocktail party hosted by Tali Lennox in London. I got the opportunity to ask Tali some questions. I was super curious about the amount of sunglasses she owns, her style, her favorite accessory, her future plans etc. Read the Q&A below.

Beauty tips every girl should know?
Try to drink a lot of water, eat healthy. Don’t wash your hair to often. Vaseline is a great product against dark circles. A good moisturizer is important.
I like modeling but I want to focus on my art. The combination of doing both is very interesting. Since I exactly know what the photographer needs. Modelling is acting and photography is art.
