out-of-the-ordinary reds

24th April 2015 Red has long been a top contender in eyewear, alongside other classic shades of black, brown and tortoise. This season sees several glam interpretations that take the colour straight into the realms of out-of-the-ordinary. The Italian label Pollipo releases Style n. 596 this month, an acetate with a red pixelated effect on front and temples. www.pollipostore.com
