Trend watch: round and retro

5th September 2012 The retro-inspired round shapes are staying, and it’s a good thing! Such a cool and elegant eyewear classic deserves a prolonged revival and we recommend everyone should try it. It is particularly flattering if your face is slightly square and definitely worth seeing how it looks on if you haven’t experimented with it before. It’s an ideal choice for this Autumn/Winter and next year.

Gucci (GG3602S) Sunglasses

This trendy black one by fashion giant Gucci graced the catwalks for the label’s A/W 12/13 presentations – it has a narrow gold metal brow bar which gives a new contrast to the circular eye shape…we have spotted a few interpretations with this decorative element, for men and women. It has grey graduated lenses so not too dark that you can’t see if the sun disappears behind a cloud. Other colours include a very desirable Havana with brown/beige lenses or horn olive with grey shaded lenses. www.gucci.com CN Images reproduced by kind permission of Sàfilo.
