NEON + COLOR.
Pops of blazing color + neon make their mark, as shown on the Marc Jacobs Marc 404/S black wire sunglasses from Safilo, featuring a straight top with neon pink Marc Jacobs logo on lenses.
An ode to the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s ensues this season, as evidenced here in the debut collection from Victoria Beckham featuring the VB131S from Marchon Eyewear, an oversized golden rounded aviator with gradient brown-to-purple lenses.

THE ULTRA LOGO.
The love goes on for larger-than-life designer logos emblazoned on everything from handbags and clothing (including repeating logo prints) to standout sunwear. To wit, the Marc Jacobs Marc 404/S semi-rimless metal sunglasses from Safilo, featuring a straight top with hot pink Marc Jacobs logo on the lenses.

Eyewear gets angular this season with a fresh to-the-point perspective—and the fanciful frame-in-frame silhouette takes on new, related forms. With delight, the titanium Face á Face Bocca Song 2 from Design Eyewear Group stands out in an angular, frame-in-frame design in neon peach and deep black.
The new luxury is whimsy, and eyewear silhouettes follow suit with fanciful, flowing, experimental shapes that are at once purely sophisticated and feminine. The Carolina Herrera New York SHM059M from De Rigo REM is an elongated, uplifted cat-eye aviator iteration in titanium with striped acetate temples.
[The SHM059M is a sunglass styled as an optical frame sans sun lenses.]
Glam’s glorious reign continues, but the placement of glitter, crystals, and glimmer has taken a more mindful, focused approach for a modern and highly wearable look. The inventive Swarovski SK5324 from Marcolin is a silver aviator metal optical style that serves up a side of Swarovski crystals punctuating the rim of a magnetic clip-on sunglass lens.
Clear and lightly tinted crystal specs looks enable a bolder-cut silhouette while welcoming in a play on light and a focus on the face. The Kirk & Kirk Sarah features the brand’s signature acrylic material for a bolder cut and a light gray hue that plays well with the season’s bold fashion looks and animal prints.
While most frame trends this season boast a big + bold persona, a light, airy look is also on point—especially when the lenses are suspended, lending a frame-in-frame look that is truly wearable. Here, the FYSH F-3639 from WestGroupe is a titanium style in rose gold with black accents and a suspended lens for an ethereal look.
