Autumn Winter 2017 Style Trends

 

Now Autumn is upon us we thought it was the perfect time to announce the key eyewear trends for Autumn Winter 2017. Patterns are all over the catwalks with clothing, accessories and eyewear being no exception. All the current trends have been seen over the decades and our vintage glasses and sunglasses demonstrate this.

Floral and fabric prints are continuing to trend this season, adding an elegant touch to eyewear, as seen in previous seasons. Acetate frames carry this style with models such as Milano 843 being highly desirable.

Digital Prints are a great way to add pattern to a frame, giving an interesting and modern take on traditional acetate frames. Models include Oliver Goldsmith Multi, Dunhill 6072, Jonathan Sceats 746, Pompei by Kenzo, Christian Dior 2595.

Colour is key this season, no longer do people want spectacles to disappear. Make a statement with bright and bold colours with styles such as Royal Oversized, a bright blue oversized frame which creates a strong stylish look, Cazal 866 sunglasses as seen on Lady Gaga or American Optical Flame, which has interchangeable brow rims allowing you to change the colour dependent on your mood or style.

Embellishment can create an ultra feminine look and many vintage frames carry this trend including Candida by Birch, Traviata 1950’s, and Jewelled Onyx.

One of our most popular patterns that suit’s both men and women alike, and has graced the trends of eyewear for many decades is Tortoiseshell. A classic style seen on celebrities world wide, this ultra flattering pattern is the go to for many spectacle wearers. Some of our favourite vintage tortoiseshell frames include Anglo American 132, Olilite Empire, NHS NHVX, Cazal 001 and Zodiac 007.

We hope this whistle stop tour of Autumn/Winter 2017 eyewear trends inspires you to cast your eyes over our vintage patterned eyewear.
