Trend alert: pastel pink

17th May 2013 The very pale pinks have to be one of the most tempting choices for summer. We saw two of these three alluring styles at the last eyewear exhibition in Milan, as well as a variety of other soft pastel tones; as part of an outfit, these pretty shades will mix just as well with muted neutrals or a splash of bold colour. Bocca 2 from Face à Face (above) combines delicate rose pink with white arms designed as ‘legs’ wearing matching pink heels…decadent and chic, it’s a cat eye of the highest order that will provide lasting enjoyment.

Chely by Sunday Somewhere, Australia

From Sydney’s Sunday Somewhere, a label that will be just two years old in August, comes the Chely, a generously proportioned design that has made it from Oz to my desk this week. It’s a headturner with its clean, sturdy design and very shiny translucent finish. I like the attention to detail – pretty resin-coated Italian gradient lenses, engraved with the Sunday Somewhere “SS” offer safe UV protection, even under the Australian rays.

Another Day by Andy Wolf, Austria

Another Day by Austria’s Andy Wolf is a super, round handmade shape that has bright flashy mirrored lenses coordinating with the pastel colour of the frame. It’s another example of the label’s dedication to high-spirited fashion and it’s one for those with a series of chic summer parties and music festivals booked into their diaries. CN
