Spring Summer Style 2018

Our latest blog brings you an insight into the big trends for Spring/Summer 2018.

It's a lasting trend that vintage inspired frames are topping the charts and throughout all the styles that are appearing on the catwalks, vintage influence can be seen throughout.

Bigger the better? It certainly seems that way with eyewear at the moment, shapes are continuing to become larger again. Acetate frames are seemingly becoming more delicate, reminiscent of the 1980’s styles that can be found across our collections.


Classic round and oval shapes are gathering momentum, many of which are unisex styles and for the ladies the butterfly frames are making a revival. Geometric shapes are also making a comeback, we have a great selection of metal geometric frames coming soon to the site.

 

It looks like metal frames gaining popularity again. Temple sides are also becoming lighter, a balance of acetate fronts with metal temples is also on the increase.

Colours are everywhere, with bright bold shades running through soft pastels and translucent crystals. Crystal frames are what we have seen as the most popular colouring this year. Pastels colours can have a youthful effect when paired correctly with skin tone and hair colouring.  Tortoiseshell remains a classic, and works well with many vintage styles, it’s also important to remember that tortoiseshell doesn’t have to be brown, and different colours put a modern twist on the classic style.

 

We hope this style guide has given you some inspiration for your next pair of vintage spectacles. We can help customise your spectacles further with our bespoke lens service, further allowing you to create an individualised and personalised look to suit your style and visual requirements.
