Once the preserve of the geek and the librarian eyeglasses are now a major fashion accessory.
All the fashion houses put out their own designs every season. But this is often an accessory where vintage rules because an old look suddenly becomes fashionable again.
Right now the big glasses shapes that were very 80′s are back, often with translucent frames or in bright colors the 80′s never had a clue about. But the shape is dead on for what was being worn at that time. Of course there is a lot of shapes on offer but I’m strucK by the number of big frames appearing in fashion shoots.
The style worn by Tom Arnold, the comic in the 90″s has become very popular for men in the spotlight with both Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr wearing the “Arnold” Glasses. The design is available in the Dolabany collection if you like the Depp/Downey look.
But the biggest difference between then and now is the color, of every hue and also the huge range of materials being used to make frames: from metal to wood, plastic to titanium and often embelished with other materials such as feathers or gems.
So grab your sunglasses, you reading glasses and those plain lens ones you wear just because they look so fabulous and get your spring ‘look’ together. COMMENT on what you liek in glasses LIKE great looking glasses
