Be blown away by Safilo Eyewear’s multi luxury brands Spring Summer 2016 (SS16) collection, I was intrigued by an inviting eclectic explosion of rainbow gold summer and phantasmagoric creations of layered tortoise acetate.
Safilo Eyewear has brought in Givenchy prescription glasses and sunglasses range to their fold of luxury brand sunglasses stable. Givenchy never ceases to wow the IT crowd with fashion forward sunglass pieces which I predict will become the household staple of Givenchy’s range. Givenchy has calibrated and experimented with fresh shapes and iconic details.
Iconic details are well flushed on Givenchy’s SS2016 frames. Stylized stars on the front, small metal teardrops on the temple tips, golden studs all over the profiles and staples fusing into hinges establish the uniqueness of the new designs.
The color palette comprises classic shades and edgy color contrasts, from black to nude, red, white, or sophisticated mirror effects, paired with shaded or flash lenses, for a bold style statement. 4 stylistic groups categorise RAVE, STYLE, ICONS AND STAR, infusing the classic DNA of Givenchy with avant garde material mixes.
A favourite of the Dior collection, Christian Dior’s DiorSplit fashion forward glasses offers a polished mirrored reflection of the soul and great anti glare vision through the mid glass. A slim aviator stylised silhouette, it embodies femininity with boldness, its fluidity of slim stems and mirrored lenses cause an impressive and pronounced confident impact to the beholder.
Ultra Lightweight and possibly of the slimmest profile, I found Carrera eyewear to be fittingly edgy and modern for the office warrior. With its slim curved contours, ease of fit on the face I believe this model will be a definite modern hit. A distinct palette to choose from, one could go from conservative dark grey on green lenses, to brushed gold frames on amber lenses.
Heading the Hugo Boss campaign, influential celebrity Mr Eddie Peng is the current poster model for Hugo Boss’s range of distinctive sunglasses for Men.
