A classic square shape with a round twist helps Topper give you the best of both worlds. This frame resembles the ‘bug-eye’ design of eyewear as it fits snugly on your face. The classic shade with bold acetate balances your sharp and angular features, giving a magical touch to your look. Look effortlessly charming with the dual-style Topper sunglasses.
The frame is assembled with a keyhole nose bridge that unlocks the focus in the middle of your eyebrows. The notch design of the medium-sized bridge acts as a brow bar that does not pinch the nose. Curved yet spacious pads offer comfort. Equally proportioned lenses ensure viewing ease. The combination of a round and square-shaped frame works best for oval, round, and angular faces. However, with a medium and wide fit, the Topper Series looks great on all face shapes.

Topper Design Details
A bold frame with a circular shape and unexpectedly ridged bottom lends you a vintage aesthetic. It is a fully rimmed eyewear with smooth curves and sleek edges that puts you in the limelight. Despite its arched design, the top rim is thick, resting just below your eyebrows without overlapping them. With a striking upper boundary mimicking the brows, the sunglasses create an indelible impression. Contrary to the upper part, the bottom is round with straight edges. Topper is a hybrid design, where its circular shape keeps you looking sharp, and the bottom edges go beyond to outline your jawline. Extended end pieces bring attention to your facial temples. Sleek temple arms rest comfortably on your ears. Break the barriers and divulge your persona in panache with Topper!
Custom cellulose acetate, a biodegradable and plant-based material, is used to make the sunglasses. Acetate frames are flexible, durable, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. It also helps Topper to keep its radiance, shape, vibrant colors, and patterns over time. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges provide durability to the frames. Repeated hand-polishing with a wheel helps it to achieve a glossy finish. Topper’s complete acetate framework makes it lightweight and comfortable to wear all day. Non-prescription lenses are made from CR-39, which is half the weight of glass, making them easy to carry. These premium polarized lenses made with CR-39 ensure maximum color intensity and clarity. Prescription lenses use Polycarbonate, which is an impact-resistant material that keeps the lenses from shattering and breaking when subjected to various external factors. The glasses are treated with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings that enhance vision and decrease eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, thus protecting the eyes.
