Must-Have Eyewear for Spring/Summer 2015
Plastic frames have always offered a canvas for design. Their potential has been downplayed for decades. Now, a playful and dramatic trend is bringing in bold block-color, textile, and nature themes, sometimes in combination. We’re excited to offer these new styles that really give our customers some fresh fashion material without the usual price tag of designer reading eyewear and sunglasses.
In women’s glasses, we’re all used to a couple of time-honored prints. These include the classic look of polka-dot sunglasses, as seen on our tellingly named Polka. And we know about leopard spots and animal print -- check out Felina and Catty bifocal sunglasses, complete with cat-eye frames. But now fabric-inspired designs on eyewear are running the gamut, and some conventional notions are getting fresh treatment.
For example, the old standby tortoiseshell is fashionably paired with trendy block colors on blue Sinclair and red Briar reading glasses. Animal prints are all part of the 60s–70s theme running through the season. Big-animal patterns now range to zebra (Zebra, of course), tiger (Ember or its blue-overdyed counterpart, Azalea reading glasses), and giraffe (Bodhi sunglasses). But the fabric inspiration doesn’t stop there. There are frames that resemble understated flower prints, as in the edgy Bella sunglasses or the kitschy Apple reading glasses. There’s an attractive natural-looking camo (Orion or the femme-camo Greta reading glasses).
And what’s this? Weaving-inspired Tart (plaid) or Holly bifocal sunglasses (herringbone), and Mod Paisley are also part of the lineup.
In keeping with the 60s–70s theme, really BIG sunglasses are on display in eyewear fashion shows. High fashion is going gaga with oversized frames tending to the circular. We are offering bigger frames not only in our sunglasses, but also in reading glasses. We’ve got reading glasses in the conventional and compact squashed styles, but also larger options, such as the striking Bliss.
Bold color is one of the directions we are seeing in Spring 2015 eyewear. You can see it in our solid-color Electra (pink), Archer (red), Bandit (blue), and Zane (white). Yes, white is one of the spring’s colors for sunglasses frames, and not in a timid way, but in chunky frames that accentuate the contrast with the dark lens. Then there are multicolor options for added contrast, like the delightfully fresh mosaic-like Juno sunglasses (shown below). In colorful reading glasses, we have the playful and really attractive Lydia, featuring striking red cat-eyes with black-and-white striped arms.
Color-block sunglasses can be bold and distinct. But for a blocky look that is gorgeously subdued, check out the wood grain arms on readers, Foster and Griffin, or Stanley readers. The equally serene Darby is reminiscent of sandstone.
