Trend watch: inside story

21st May 2013 Looking for something different this summer? Eyestylist has noticed some stunning transparent acetate designs with very special inlays inside the frame structure. From Linda Farrow and shoe and accessory designer, Charlotte Olympia in a collaborative collection, this showy piece  (above) displays a tantalising coloured ostrich feather inside the clear acetate frame. It captures the mood of Olympia’s other pieces, such as her wicker bag featuring traditional wicker work mounted in transparent perspex. The sunglasses come in four delicate colours, including the peach/champagne version pictured above. www.lindafarrow.com
