Three reasons these MESSYWEEKEND™️ sunnies will be your favourite summer accessory

MessyWeekend LIV Tortoise
We found a well-designed pair of sunglasses that one would feel confident wearing anywhere, made to be worn for more than one season, and at a price that isn’t going to break the bank.

Summer is just around the corner and that means, so is the season of sunglasses. While the world’s favourite (in our opinion) accessory is actually incredibly useful year-round, they’re even more important in the scorthing summer months- it’s important to protect your eyes from those harsh UV-rays! 

So, if you’re currently on the hunt for a new pair of sunnies or in the mood to update your summer look, you’ve come to the right place.

Design is obviosuly a key factor in choosing the right pair of sunnies, but so are quality and price, of course. So, we did a bit of hunting ourselves to find the perfect pair that takes the cake in all three categories.

Walk into any fashion (or convenience) store and you’re sure to find a rack of sunglasses somewhere. Accessibility isn’t really an issue, but design, quality and price certainly are. Often sunglasses have two out of the three attributes. A really cool design and excellent quality but they’ll cost you an arm and a leg. Or fine design, decent price but the quality screams ‘temporary’. What we wanted to find was a well-designed pair of sunglasses that you’d feel confident wearing anywhere, made to last for more than one season and with a price tag that won’t completely break the bank. Is that too much to ask for? Well, apparently not! Enter MESSYWEEKEND™️.

LIV — bold, classy & playful

MessyWeekend Copenhagen is a small but growing eyewear startup based in Copenhagen, Denmark. They have a pretty extensive line of sunglasses, but one pair in particular stands out from the rest: LIV. These sunglasses are simply gorgeous and come in four colourways: Black, Pink, Tortoise, and Horn. The Black model is your classic pair of sunnies, perfect for practically any occasion. The Pink model is bright and fun— ideal for those looking for a pop of colour! They are rectangular in their shape and slightly oversized, though not aggressively so. Design-wise, we’re big fans.

So, what about quality and price? LIV is handcrafted using high-quality acetate. There are almost 200 steps in the production of these sunglasses, a manual process that can take somewhere between six and eight weeks to complete. They are assembled using 5-barrel hinges and feature shatterproof lenses with full UV400 protection. These beautifully designed, high-quality sunglasses cost only $160 AUD — a very reasonable price compared to similar brands!

A brand with an impact

We’ve gone over each of our three points, but we actually discovered there is a fourth. How does the brand you choose to support look beyond business? Nowadays, there are numerous brands who are giving back in various ways to their communities and MESSYWEEKEND™️ is no exception. For each product sold, they donate a portion of their revenue to their partner organisations Plastic Change and ReSea Project, to secure the collection of 100 plastic straws from the ocean! We love a brand that goes above and beyond what is expected of them, as do most of their Trustpilot reviewers, who gave MESSYWEEKEND™️ 4.7 out of 5 stars. Very impressive for a small startup!
