About us


Shades was founded in 1984 in the heart of Adelaide City. An Independent family owned business who are still as passionate today about the brands we stock as they did back in the 80’s!

Sunglasses have become more than just eye protection and even more than just a fashion accessory, they are a statement piece expressing peoples personality, style and individuality. At Shades we endeavour to bring the best collections from Designers such as Gucci, Dior, Tom Ford, Celine and Chloe to name a few and even cutting edge brands that are hand made in Japan such as Dita are all available! However, you can still find your favourite Eyewear brands like Ray-Ban, Persols , Maui Jim, Carrera or Oliver Peoples. The list of the brands we stock is endless and forever changing!

Every team member of the Shades family are passionate about our Company and pride ourselves on our customer service by providing the right knowledge and ensuring that when you leave the store your glasses fit you perfectly.
