DOUBLE TAKE

Luscious shapes, head-turning hues, bodacious details. The freshest sunwear looks for Spring 2020 turn the focus entirely on the lens for a whole new vision.

Lenses as you’ve never seen them before—embedded with glitter, cut into spacious rimless shapes (from shields to sharp cats), and lightly tinted in a broad palette of hues from mint green to rouge and even color-shifting photochromics.

GLITTER, EMBEDDED.
On trend in 2020: glitter-encrusted lenses + purple hues in sunwear. From top:
The Police Eclipse 1 SPLA19 from De Rigo REM is a rimless retro glam silhouette with a dusting of glitter infused into the purple-hued lenses.
The Marc Jacobs Marc 453/S from Safilo lays the glam on thick with glitter-embedded lenses in violet with a sweeping rose gold brow bar suspended across the top.

COLOR INFUSION.
This season, sun lenses are lightly tinted in luscious hues, from rouge to mint. On point, from top:
The Fysh F-2043 from WestGroupe is an acetate array of oceanic greens, including the lightly tinted lenses.
Sharp angles with cat-eye inspo define the Kenzo KZ40026U from Thélios, presented in a mint green hue.
The Valentino VA2033 from Luxottica also points to the edgy, angular trend with a red lens punctuated with the iconic Valentino studs.

BODACIOUS STYLE.
Sunwear for the Spring 2020 season also expands into wildly bold, new shapes, from ultra-oversized rimless face-hugging shields to luxe, retro-lovin’ silhouettes. On trend, from top:
The Jimmy Choo Zelma/S from Safilo makes a gorgeous statement with vision in a boldly oversized rimless shape and rose gold lens embellished with the new JC logo.
The Victoria Beckham VB609S from Marchon Eyewear expertly channels retro luxe in an extended aviator-meets-rectangle style with rose/brown lenses.

MALE PERSPECTIVE.
Men’s sunwear follows suit for the season with lens looks in both pop colors and classics. From top:
The Mykita x Helmut Lang HL001 makes a standout statement with a rectangular front and gray lenses accented with side-shield lenses in a pop of yellow.
The Tom Ford Razor FT0797 from Marcolin channels a vintage retro look, modernized with brown lenses and sleek temples.
Fully on trend in a lens-centric style season, Transitions Signature Style Colors lenses reveal a hint of lightly tinted violet that turn a rich, jewel-toned amethyst when exposed to UV light. Here, Brooks Brothers BB2037 frame in black acetate with Transitions lenses, courtesy Transitions Optical.
