Often from the vast world of fashion such products emerge that may leave you with the question “Par kyun?”. The latest inclusion to that list is an eyewear launched by fashion brand Gucci. It’s called Inverted cat eye sunglasses. People can’t keep calm and are looking for jokes and memes to react to the ‘upside-down’ sunglasses.

Both the posts received tons of comments from people. From being reminded of how they used to wear glasses upside-down as kids to sharing hilarious memes and Gifs, people came up with all sorts of comments. A few were also reminded of other unusual fashion products.
