With summer in full swing there is no better time to update your eyewear wardrobe. Here are this summers top trends in eyewear.

 

Clashing brights by Feb31st

Bright coloured eyewear has come a long way in recent years, with new manufacturing technology eyewear makers can produce more unique pieces than ever before. By combining bright colours you can make a statement with your specs. Feb31st have produced these stunning glasses by using 13 layers of ethically sourced wood. You can have any colour you like in each layer which enables them to produce a tailor-made pair of specs that match your personality and style.

 

Chunky cat eyes by Gucci

2019 saw the return of the slim, narrow cat eye. This year it’s the large thicker rimmed designs that have caught everyone’s attention. Gucci have embraced this trend and with the classic Gucci logo, we think they look fantastic. We recommend sticking to neutral colours such as tortoiseshell and Havana with this shape. Cat eye is truly a shape that suits everyone and it adds a bit of fun to your eyewear wardrobe.

 

Combination eyewear by Dita

Reinventing a style that has been around since the 1940s, DITA have perfected this handcrafted piece. What used to be a very heavy-to-wear pair of glasses is now a lightweight, comfortable, and not to mention stylish frame. The Statesman-Six comes in a variety of neutral colours and is worn by many of Hollywood’s finest, adding finesse to any spectacle wearers’ wardrobe.

 

Re-imagined retro by Oliver Goldsmith

They say that fashion always comes back around and eyewear is no exception. Taking us back in time to the 1950s and ’60s is Oliver Goldsmith. They first launched in the 1920s and their creations have been worn by Sir Michael Caine and Audrey Hepburn. They have brought retro styles and modern manufacturing processes together to create unique chunky frames and shapes.
