Women’s clothing and eyewear get inspo this season from the boys—menswear-inspired specs have bold, masculine lines and colors.
Frame: Oversized acetate Victoria Beckham style VB615S from Marchon Eyewear
The prolific see-through trend in apparel makes its way into eyewear with color-flecked stained-glass effects on acetate silhouettes that have a beautiful interplay with light.
Frame: The l.a.Eyeworks Ivar brings on the appeal in a stained-glass-like tortoise acetate with ruby flecks.
Lightly tinted and practically clear, colored crystal acetates come into play this season to lighten up the mood—and serve up a style that is highly wearable.
Frame: The Koali 20075K from Morel pairs light blue and brown see-through acetate with a matte gold bridge and temples.
Eyewear gets schooled with basic geometry in the mix, as classic silhouettes—from cat-eye and rounds to butterfly—break the mold with more angular, geometric-inspired lines.
Frame: The Tom Ford Tallulah TF767 from Marcolin is a head-turning triangular tortoise sunglass in acetate with gold hinges.
As simple as that, color-blocking brings a totally fresh feel to eyewear by employing complementary and contrasting colors for a dramatic effect.
Frame: The CH Carolina Herrera SHE148 from De Rigo REM boasts an oversized square metal front, punctuated with an acetate geometric design in fuchsia, tan, and black.
The reign of that ’70s decade continues, inspiring style in both apparel and eyewear this season. In specs, oversized and elongated square silhouettes make a strong case for the style of the “Me Decade.”
Frame: The Fendi FF0422 from Safilo channels the decadent decade in an oversized square gold semi-rimless silhouette.
THE RULES, REVISED.
Tilted, twisted, shifted. Eyewear no longer abides by the rules of old for the design of shapes and lines. Often with a geometric accent, design lines move in entirely new directions that are bringing eyewear into a fresh focus.
Frame: The Lindberg 8326 sunglasses boast a fresh, angular-meets-geometric design in blue acetate with gold-colored wire temples.
