New Attitudes: neutrals vs naturals

Gone are the days when neutral colours meant traditional hues, and may have lacked distinction or notable fashion assets. Nowadays, relaxed, flexible style guidelines enable a wide variety of colours to be classified as “neutral.” For spectacle wearers this is an opportunity to experiment with some delicious “new neutrals” to transform your autumn fashion aura – with stylish eloquence.

An exotic shape – in a splendid shade called Tea Camo (above) – distinguishes Innski, with its exaggerated round form by l.a. Eyeworks. Handcrafted in Italy, the acetate design claims its own distinctive, desirable eyewear personality! www.laeyeworks.com
