Sophisticated Lady

Black and Gold Charm

23rd November 2012 During the shows this autumn, we’ve seen stunningly creative frames in black and gold. Each colour is significant on its own – and when featured together, the results are sophisticated and elegant. Today we are showing two versions we’d love to wear! Anne-Karin Karlsson has the magic touch with black and gold in Coco on the Run (above). The frame is acetate with metal inside, a patented material that has never been used in eyewear before. “It’s very tricky  to execute, but with the result as I imagined”, says Anna-Karin, and the result is superb!

Curvy and Captivating -Rava – by Vera Wang


Vera Wang’s interpretation of black and gold is a striking design- Rava (above) – in black acetate, accented with gold at the nosepiece and around the lenses. The curvy shape and the bold temple lift ensure an even more glamorous frame. JG
