Picking between the classic Aviators squared frames or Oversized frames may be difficult when you consider how refined and cool these sunglasses are. Defining your style here can come down to how you like to wear your frames.



If you’re more of a conservative and want a clean, concise look, then you'll probably want to get a pair of the Sacha aviators. A small profile with edgy cuts, these pairs have a sleek finish.



Looking for that state trooper look, or consider yourself big-time, then you’re on the market the ’80s inspired Dennis frame. These pairs are "heavy on the eyes" and will demand attention if you seek it.



For those who consider themselves on the sillier side of chic, then you may want the oversized Salomé frame. These Nessy Khem designs have a celebrity quality for that L.A. influencer look.

These hand-made stainless steel frames come with full lens tints, as well as the gradient-tint ‘Smokey’ lenses. 24 karat gold plated frames are available for some in each design. What separates this sunglass brand from others is its snake-like chain made from 24k silver. The chain is also detachable and can be worn separately, accessorizing your pair. Matching chains are available with all sunglass styles and materials.

Nessy Khem is refining tradition in her designs as she pushes for a look that still resonates with generations young, as well as old. A generation that reinvents, recycles, reinvigorates the things our parents had, only to make them our own.
