This week’s pair is from Aussie brand AM Eyewear, the Merridy is a fave of mine; available in both the sunnies and the opticals. If you like a statement frame but don’t like to go too big, this is the frame for you – available in Black, Old School Tortoise, and Tweed from Eye Respect.
The Patsy is a new addition to the London Retro family, a modern take on the iconic Wayfarer shape with a rounder base. With rounder glasses set to be a huge trend this summer these glasses are a great transition for the individual that’s used to the squarer frame, as well as those that like to make a statement with their eyewear!
The Patsy is available from Glasses Direct in black and tortoiseshell, and are priced at £99 incl single vision lenses.
Alber Elbaz just made my life! French fashion house Lanvin has launched its first eyewear optical collection under the artistic direction of Alber Elbaz and in partnership with De Rigo Group, and I can’t wait to get me hands on it. Having recently débuted it’s 2012 Sunglasses Collection, the optical collection fits perfectly in line with the Lanvin style, the new exclusive glasses for men and women successfully interpret the Lanvin tradition with a mixture of both retro and contemporary details. Horn is the star of the collection, the colour palette is rich in natural beige and brown nuances, though also ocean blue hues, which embellish even the classic and timeless black and havana with innovative color combinations. The glasses will be available at Lanvin e-store and all Lanvin boutiques this Spring 2012. Until then watch the video below showing how they’re made – BY HAND!
