Kilsgaard

Another brightly toned collection of nicely produced spectacles, this time from one of our favourite Danish labels, Kilsgaard. The  styles in this range are clean and simple and made of a combination of aluminium and acetate, a bit unusual but lovely and light and robust when it comes to wear and tear. As Jacob Kilsgaard has explained to me in the past, the aim is for tech solutions that are really elegant. This is one of the colours that will take 2013 by storm! See the collection at www.kilsgaard-eyewear.com and see our previous editorial at www.eyestylist.com/2012/08/model-39-10/CN

Nile

L.G.R.

Nile is one of the optical styles in L.G.R.’s new spectacles collection, which we have seen in full last month. This collection ranks very highly…the acetates are classical and yet have a subtle modern feel about them – this grey marbled version is extremely appealing. I also picked out this model because of its angled eye shape which underlines the handcrafting (and love of craftsmanship) that has gone into this product. A fine product that offers something quite different from the ordinary and mass produced. CN

Theo Antwerp

The new Theo collection is a colour and design feast,  especially this wonderful Houndstooth pattern , which takes its inspiration from the textile pattern. From Theo’s Eye-Witness selection, the design above is crafted with an exotically extended eyebrow, that is beautifully avant-garde, and the free-spirited colour has real zip. This luscious lime green tone is so cool – and so are the other colours – rich burgundy, raspberry, and a deep blue – distinctively Theo! www.theo.be JG

Emmanuelle Khanh

A super little cat’s eye shape is always a lovely idea for the winter and this style sums up how adorable this design can be. I like the pretty moulded line of the upper front, and the choice of a classic red, which can be a top one (sometimes unexpectedly) for many skin colours. It is a smallish frame, but full of character. Try it and see! www.emmanuellekhanhparis.com CN

The Jono Hennessy brand always serves up an uplifting choice of seasonal, on-trend colours. Model 8253 has a soft classic shape enlivened with positive colour choices that will bring a flash of brilliant brightness to the face. The tonal combinations include a transparent crystal with bold blue, classic tortoise with soft jade green and orange with a pearly neutral. If you are wearing run-of-the-mill and you try these on, you are going to experience something quite special! Find out more about this Australian spectacles label at www.jonohennessy.com CN
