Trend watch: the allure of purple

16th February 2014 Purple is one of my personal favourites in eyewear. It is – perhaps unexpectedly – easy-to-wear, and it gives a lift to a minimal classic shape. Vanni’s choice of purple for Hydra V8444, a combination metal/acetate design with modified butterfly shape, is a good reflection of the colour’s all-round allure; worn by Doris Zaccone, presenter of “Capital in the world” (Radio Capital), Rome, where the Vanni Occhiali team was recently shooting, the colour is superbly eye-catching, but not overstated or in any way flash.

The Hydra also benefits from large proportions, and from what we are seeing, this is a key trend in women’s eyewear through 2014. See more Vanni styles at CN
