The ways we wear colour in eyewear are always changing, and the impact can be subtle or powerful, depending on many nuances, material combinations and the work on the details and structure of the frame itself. Impactful designs this season include sunglass designs in one single colour for frame and lens. The accomplished innovative fashion brands are doing it – many others are set to follow.
In Europe, Ørgreen Optics is one of eyewear’s trendsetters in colour directions: their Yoko design is defined by the over-sized, circular lenses and elegant details. New vibrant colours of the Yoko include saturated lemon, blue or dusty pink. Above – Yoko in mat vibrant lemonade with yellow contrast lens. www.orgreenoptics.com
Like Ørgreen, Mykita’s new sunglass collections for Spring/Summer 19 open the door to fresh and fruity colour proposals. The impact of the tone-on-tone effect is seen in their Mykita + Maison Margiela model MMESSE023 – in Baywatch red with matching red lens – as well as the eye-catching tone this style has a bold, eye-catching shape – the experimental flat diamond aviator (1990s inspired) has a very narrow reduced stainless steel framework. www.mykita.com
Finest Seven’s fantastic Zero 14 is a fashionista must-have in this colour genre: luxuriously light to wear, in stunning brights such as shocking pink and baby blue, with the brand’s trademark narrow metal bridge and sinuous temples acting as a a balance to the thin bright blue rim and coordinated lens tone.
