For men and women, smarter, bolder glasses are the confidence boost that some have just discovered in our new world of working from home. An exciting colour combination, a mix and match design, or different striking styles of stripey acetate are therefore fresh and bold for Spring – and bring polish to a look. For men, and a cool new way to wear your stripes, l.a.Eyeworks’ model Kola balances timeless tortoise with a hint at horizontals – like a tailored suit enlivened by a pin-stripe shirt. The frame is defined by a strong angular shape with smart tailored edges. Find out more: www.laeyeworks.com
Dipping into an archive of historic frames, the Girl 8025T at French design house Lafont comes from a tradition of exploring fabric and texture with special effect in sparkly crystal acetate paired with a defining black upper rim. The lightness of the stripey pattern gives it a glistening sheen that is feminine and luxurious and eye-catching when worn. www.lafont.com
At Tree a new capsule highlights vertical stripe detailing on the upper rims. The three new models in this series are characterised by a lightweight chic design with minimal lines and the characteristic decorative flourish which is modern and different.
