4 of the best: bold shades of blue

The blue tones for the season are bright, even electric

Inspired by the catwalk, street style and nature’s bounty, the new tones of blue in eyewear are intense and bold, with varieties that offer solid colour as well as transparencies and multi toned patterns. From Tuareg shades to natural ocean hues, the quality of the materials and the creative vision of the designers come together to add a dash of blue freshness and modernity to the collections – a very good alternative to the classic ‘darker’ tones we might more typically wear at this point in the year. Above: the new Finn model in the Kaleidoscope collection by Kirk & Kirk (https://kirkandkirk.com), in Italian acrylic. The colour is called “Capri”, inspired by the shores of the Mediterranean island – the material has a translucent quality

Jazzy in the Issy & LA range by Lafont Paris – an exciting patterned blue

Patterns are unequivocally a look this season in eyewear, often inspired by vintage acetate colorations as well as marbling and stone-like textures. Model Jazzy at Lafont Paris is one of the finest patterned versions we’ve spotted, mixing warm and cool tones to spectacular effect: www.lafont.com

Duc by Vue DC: the bevelled surfaces radiate light and colour

Model Duc is a memorable design from Vue DC, the French artisan label. The translucent blue is enhanced by the beveling of the surfaces, for an eye-catching result, as it “frames” the eyes. www.vuedc.com
