Here our stylists from the Frame Room at Cameron Optometry, share their tips for spring/summer trends.
When it comes to colour this season, dark tones are huge and tortoiseshell variants should be top of your list. Why not take Californian-cool inspiration from one of our latest brands, Garrett Leight? It’s full of classic-yet-contemporary frames with a retro twist. You can also embrace the continued love for a round, vintage frame. Perfect to compliment the trench coat trend this spring.
Chic specs rule over at Anne et Valentin and its range of colourful bold expressions will put the bright into your paint-box look. Colour blocking is back. Hurrah! This range of frames make it simple. Oversized glasses are also a big deal and this tortoiseshell pair offer clean lines and on-trend appeal.
Being more adventurous with construction and colour is also order of the season. Red, pinks and purple frames, in particular, are exciting news. Bring out the rock fiend in you and get summer festival prepped with Vinyl Factory’s eclectic range. With their electric guitar, neck shaped temples and everything from cat eye to clubmaster offerings, these frames will get you in the pop and retro mood. Team with coloured vinyl or clear PVC threads to tap into the plastic fantastic look, another of the season’s hottest trends.
No eyewear designer does bespoke frames like Feb31st. Completely unique, customised, handmade in wood, these frames will be yours and yours alone. Made to order, you can personalise them by picking whatever colour-combo you like. You can even have a kaleidoscope of colours on the one frame if you so wish. Why not opt for a range of gelato hues and maximise 2018’s bold pastel colour trend? These make a great gift too, as you can engrave them with all kinds of lovely messages.
Another great choice are neutral and nude frames or metal wireframes. Thankfully, Scandi-style does this best and reigns supreme at Lindberg. With its simplistic, elegant frames that subtly scream Danish design, investing in these for a season will reward you for a lifetime. What’s more, polished jeans are back! Match your tailor-made frames with your tailored denims and you’re spring/summer sorted.
