Color Me Pretty in BCBGMAXAZRIA Specs

28 Jan

Feel like you’re always wearing black during the winter? Whether it is reflecting your mood or hiding a few pounds left over from the holidays, it does seem to be the signature color during the colder months.

Don’t get us wrong, black is fabulous, but it always looks best with a pop of color. Consider swooping up a pair of BCBG MAXAZRIA specs by ClearVision Optical to punch up your black ensemble. Each new style is bold, avant-garde and available in hot spring colors.

Artsy ladies might want to try the Adalina frame with its soft cat-eye shape and open pierced temples. We love the vibrant teal color, but Adalina is also available in black and brown.

For a stylish, but more subdued look try Belinda, a metal, semi-rimless butterfly frame with bi-laminate temples donning the BCBG logo. This luscious plum tone and colorful temples are fun and feminine. It is also available in black and brown.

Vivacious Valentino Eyewear

21 Jan

Valentino has unleashed their divine spring/summer 2011 eyewear collection by Safilo Group and after a quick glimpse, you’ll see that these frames are nothing short of amazing. If you’re looking for dramatic effects, luxurious materials and meticulous detailing, you’re in dire need of one (or more, of course!) of these frames.

The collection is broken down into two categories: Rock Attitude and Dark Romanticism.

Rock Attitude is all about being fun and flirty with an edgy twist. Valentino raised the bar when it comes to style with leather textures, metal studs, diamond-like finishes, exquisite temple embellishments and gradient lenses. Butterfly, wayfarer and square shapes steal the show and offer a great way for you to show off your rocker-chick personality.

On the other hand, Dark Romanticism is more mysterious and regal. The iconic rose motif carved into the temples delivers crisp, geometric lines that demand attention. The glossy finish is scintillating to the senses and will appease any fashionista’s need for glitz and glamour.

Barely There Axiom Specs by ProDesign

19 Jan

Simplicity is the main ingredient in ProDesign’s new Axiom line. Delicate frame fronts appear in rimless, semi-rimless and fully rimmed styles, with soft metal accents. The flawless design is further advanced by featuring hinge-less technology.

Taking cue from the jewelry industry, ProDesign crafted a simple “s” shape where the hinge would typically be, making the temple thinner and more flexible. ProDesign relied on PVD coatings to ensure that the finish wouldn’t peel, making these specs as durable as they are trendy.

While ProDesign certainly put plenty of thought into the technology, the bottom line is that these frames convey effortless style that will complement almost any face shape. The Axiom collection comes in seven different styles, each available in four colors. Find which one is right for you!
