Men’s glasses trends: sustainable + retro

Eyestylist TREND bulletin cover frame: the eco-friendly Jukkasjärvi by EOE Eyewear

Round glasses, panto styles, circular specs: whatever you call them it’s a shape to take note of. The classic retro style is distinguished and intellectual with limitless variations to elevate one’s style.

EOE Eyewear’s Jukkasjärvi – our cover frame for February – is among the contemporary, sustainable styles in this noteworthy collection which originated in Swedish Lapland. The  unisex “round” design comes in tones of quartz, orchid or a new dandelion (see below) – our preferred shade for men. Made from ‘bio’ acetate, “friendly” because it does not contain petroleum it is also free from high-risk phthalates. Stylish precise design details are the key at EOE, and this frame stands out for its two-tone finish, with solid colour in the upper part and a transparent section below.

It’s also the location of a famous Icehotel. Photography by Studio Andreas Johansson
