The King’s Speech Cast Gets Some Lacoste Lovin’

23 Mar

The all-star cast of The King’s Speech continued to reign supreme throughout award season, with the majority of the cast being nominated for their performances at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Golden Globes and Oscars. While two of our favorite veteran actors, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter, didn’t strike Oscar gold for their supporting roles, they certainly gained well-deserved recognition for their acting chops.

We’ve already seen how handsome fellow cast mate and Oscar winner Colin Firth looks in eyewear, now it’s time to see how Geoffrey and Helena fared.

Geoffrey never failed to show off his dapper style throughout award season, especially in retro and geek chic specs. He looks just as charming (if not more so) in a tortoise pair of Lacoste L616S shades with a keyhole bridge by Marchon Eyewear.

Helena, on the other hand, sported round, blacked out sunnies on the red carpet, but it’s nice to see her pretty peepers as she dons pink, butterfly shaped Lacoste L2607 specs by Marchon Eyewear.

All Eyes On Spring 2011 Eyewear Trends

10 Mar

Full of chic shapes, dazzling details and warm colors, eyewear this spring is making a statement. From geek chic looks to retro influences and sporty inspirations, there are endless options that offer something for everyone.

Women’s eyewear trends include:

Retro Prep

With influences from the ‘50s and ‘60s, this trend is one part sass and one part class. Cat-eyes are still on top – in extreme or relaxed, teardrop styles. Bold browline frames are must-haves for geek chic prepsters, and trendsetters will drool over new, round shapes taking center stage. Ladylike hues of tortoise, pinks, creamy neutrals and pearly finishes are fresh, while vivacious hues or pops of color are flirty.

Disco Diva

The decade ruling fashion this spring is, without a doubt, the 1970s. Disco queens will delight in the groovy eyewear options that have burst onto the scene. When it comes to sunglasses this season, bigger is better and the squoval (squared oval) is king. Luscious berry tones, tonal and marbleized effects, bedazzled details, gradient lenses and rose or amber tinted lenses are quintessential.

Urban Edge

Sporty and downtown styles collide for a look that is uber edgy and chic. Smoky gradients, bold metal accents and luxurious leathers add daring details to shields, aviators and geometric shapes. Adrenalin junkies and daredevils get their fix in mixed-media frames, fashion forward cut outs and rebellious blacks. Mirrored or blacked out lenses add panache and show off a futuristic vibe perfect for any fierce fashionista.

The latest eyewear looks for men include:

Modern Heritage

Taking cues from simpler times, eyewear this season is all about clean, classic styles from the past with a modern touch. Round frames – a la John Lennon – have emerged as a key shape for specs and sunglasses in wire or plastic. Geek chic browline and wayfarer styled frames continue to rule the streets and are more dashing than ever. Keyhole bridges also add charming detail to these dapper styles.

Street Pop

Eyewear this spring is sporty and spicy, giving men the perfect chance to pump up their style. Shields are an absolute must, as well as colored lenses that add spunk to typical guy frames. Tough metal details or matching black frames and lenses are ultra sleek and mysterious, while floating lenses take frames into the styles of tomorrow. Thick plastics, white, blue and two-toned frames keep things fun and fresh.

Worldly styles, textures and details prove to be great inspirations for men’s fashion, especially when it comes to eyewear. Frames this spring are sultry, yet earthy, with intriguing details and natural colors. Rustic wooden frames or accents and rich leathers make the look chic and effortless. Aviators command attention in both classic and updated styles, with the navigator (squared aviator) showing face as well.

Get Revved Up for Kata’s Reverse Collection

4 Mar

Looking for frames that are on trend but will make you stand out? You’ll certainly be able to find it in Kata’s Reverse collection by Legacie.

The collection’s concept is based upon the idea of turning the hinge of a frame completely inside out. Kata achieved this by cleverly revealing the connection between titanium and acetate on an inverted hinge. The result: a slew of frames with distinct temples in delicious shapes and colors.

Incorporating key Kata design elements and the new temple concept, this collection boasts a series of frames in vintage – think P-3, wayfarer, retro round, keyhole bridge – and modern styles in hand made acetate or titanium.

These frames are perfect for anyone looking to make a statement this spring.
