Artemis Fowl’s Sunglasses of Choice are Wayfarer Style Shades

Who knew Artemis was such a sharp dresser?

I remember absolutely demolishing the Artemis Fowl series when I was younger. I loved those books. What I don’t remember was ever thinking that the character would be a particularly sharp dresser.

It was to my surprise, then, that when I saw the tailor for the upcoming movie based on the book, the main character was suited out in a Men-in-Black-esque suit and dark sunglasses, alongside a skinny tie that would put even the most ardent noughties indie-kid to shame.

It’s a strong look and one that is taken up a notch by the sunglasses.

What Sunglasses Does Artemis Fowl Wear?

There’s good news, and bad news when it comes to the Artemis Fowl sunglasses.

The bad news is we don’t know for sure what the exact pair Ferdia Shaw (Artemis Fowl) wears in the movie. The good news is that we can take a good guess.


In the image above we’ve taken a still from the trailer and turned up the brightness. You can make out what appears to be the Ray-Ban logo. While the writing isn’t clear, it is in the same location and has the same silhouette. You can also see that the glasses don’t angle in towards the face which makes me think that the sunglasses are Ray-Ban New Wayfarers. You can check these glasses out on Amazon by clicking here.

If you’re after a cheaper alternative, then Knockaround is a good choice. This brand produces a large selection of Wayfarer-style sunglasses at a much lower price point than Ray-Bans. The Fort Knox is perahps the most similar due to it’s shape and the metal detailing on the temples. Check them out in black on Amazon by clicking here.
