A little while back I attended a Luxottica media day where the eyewear importers showed off the latest frames from zexy brands like Ray-Ban, Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Vogue.
The event was held at and catered for by The Cape Town Club in Queen Victoria and the food was crazy good. I think I must’ve eaten a good twelve mini pork bellies washed down with a good litre of Villiera bubbly but it was totally worth every minute of the treadmill time. But let’s get back to the brille, shall we?
Clearly the floral frames we saw last season are still big news…
Embellishments are also hot, hot, hot in a ‘so gaudy they could be gorgeous’ kinda way…
Colourful frames are still having a moment and, shape-wise, round Harry Potter-style specs along with 60s-inspired cat eye frames are still very much en vogue.
Spotted anything you like?
This new lot should be in stores like Sunglasses Hut as I type and, if you’re a Discovery credit card holder, you can score up to 20% off your new pair of frames.
