With sun protection one of the most important steps in your beauty regimen these days, you can consider getting designer visors for an additional layer of protection whenever you are out and about. Another plus? Visors are the perfect alternative to caps, featuring an open top that allows for more breathability in Singapore’s hot and humid weather.
Not surprisingly, luxury brands are stepping up with fun options season after season, from the fuss-free styles from Fendi, Gucci and Prada that all come with an elasticised headband and a curved front visor, while those from Dior and Louis Vuitton offer more coverage which is great for those who believe bigger is indeed better. Read on to get a quick run-through of the five, listed below in alphabetical order.
01 – Dior has always been known for its shield-like visors, and you can look out for the DiorClub V1U (SGD740), which is a new-in design for Spring-Summer 2021. The blue visor comes with the silver mirrored #DiorOblique motif, and you will find even the brand’s name featured prominently on the front and jacquard stretch band running around the back.
02 – Fendi’s Brown Cotton Visor (SGD610) is a lovely option for those who are all about the grab-and-go. The FF motif is printed all over the cotton visor, ensuring that it will never get lost in your bag or tote, even when you happen to chuck it in when not in use.
03 – For something extra sporty-looking, go for Gucci’s Logo Print Visor (SGD470 via FARFETCH), complete with a bright yellow PVC visor that’s reminiscent of retro beach tennis styles.
04 – Next up, the LV Shield Visor (SGD1400) from Louis Vuitton is a statement-making accessory that serves two main functions. Firstly, it’s a photochromic visor that darkens whenever it’s exposed to sunlight, so you can think of it as an extra pair of sunglasses over the head. Secondly, it can be considered a face shield because it complies with EU regulations, although you would still have to wear your face mask under it as long as you are in Singapore.
05 – Lastly, Prada’s practical Fabric Visor (SGD595) is the most minimal-looking of the lot, made from the brand’s signature black nylon and finished with the enamel triangle logo right in the middle. A Prada signature through and through, this is as classic Prada as it gets.
