Welcome to this week’s Red Hot Round-up. Every week, we gather together all of the world’s biggest sunglasses news into one handy article. We also include stories about our new product lines, competitions, and other fun Red Hot Sunglasses news.

We also looked at our amazing buying trip to London where we sourced loads more stunning designer glasses and sunglasses to add to our collections. This week, we’re looking at a story of how John Lennon’s broken sunglasses were repaired and sold at auction this week. We’re also taking a look at children’s sunglasses and how important it is to provide children with adequate sun protection!
