Whether youngsters desire to be a fashionista, embracing hip-hop, or looking really cool, eyewear designs for children allow their sense of style and personality to shine. JF Rey has released a superb collection of optical styles in their Kids&Teens collection. Soleil (above) is a charming shape for girls 4/6 years old, in acetate that combines pink and pearl white with a soft glittery finish. www.jfrey.fr
