Get Neo-Preppy in Tommy Hilfiger Eyewear

21 Mar

It doesn’t get much more all-American than Tommy Hilfiger Eyewear by Safilo Group. If you have a passion for preppy, colorful style, you’ll be smiling from ear to ear with the brand’s most recent collection.

Offering 18 new shady styles, 15 for men/unisex and three for women, Tommy Hilfiger captured the American spirit in a handful of classic shapes including classic aviators, shields, wayfarers and oversized squovals. Rich berry tones, tortoises, blues, blacks and crisp whites coupled with smoldering gradient lenses awaken the senses and make this collection lighthearted and distinguished.

The collection also includes 18 unisex optical frames with designs ranging from geek chic to traditional rectangles to retro rounds so there is something for everyone. Tommy Hilfiger’s statement red, white and blue color combos are joined by more somber hues of black and Havana.

Try your best to keep from drooling over these fabulous frames!

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.

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.

Envious Eyewear at the Golden Globes

17 Jan

Last night’s 68th annual Golden Globes was anything but lackluster when it came to entertainment and fashion. A-listers dazzled us in flowing gowns, dapper suits and trendy eyewear, while Ricky Gervais delivered razor sharp blows to some of Hollywood’s finest. Let’s not waste time dwelling over whether Gervais’ jokes were crass or controversial (although it made for great headlines this morning!), instead let’s breakdown the hottest eyewear looks of the evening:

Geek chic stole the show and appeared on some of our favorite leading ladies and men. Thick black frames in square shapes showed face on big winners Annette Bening, who won Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical for her character in The Kids Are All Right, and Paul Giamatti, who won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical for his role in Barney’s Version.

As usual, aviators made their mark on some of Tinseltown’s heartthrobs in classic teardrop and rectangular shapes. Gradient lenses were crucial to complete the look—P Diddy’s smoky lenses added an edgy appeal to his dashing suit and adorable bow tie.

Round, retro shapes surfaced in both specs and shades, some with tinted or blacked out lenses. Geoffrey Rush was absolutely charming in a top hat and tortoise frames, while Helena Bonham Carter, nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, made a more daring choice in two-toned, round sunnies with a bold browline.

Wayfarers enjoyed time in the limelight as well. Darren Criss, known for his role as “Blaine” on Glee, rocked a pop art look in hot pink frames with gradient lenses. Mark Wahlberg, nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, went the more traditional route in sleek black wayfarers with blacked out lenses.
