Maybe it’s time for women to embrace their own style of eyewear heritage anew. Kate Spade makes perfect sense of that with a decidedly feminine take on the clubman style, softened via a slight cattishness and distinctly womanly colorations.

Color Block Party
Eyewear has ALWAYS led the way in innovative and fresh color blocking. Fashion elsewhere and designer accessories in general follow suit. When eyewear moves, others follow. Be it contrasting and complementing with different colors OR adding inner secrets of color splashes and personal satisfaction, eyewear’s leadership makes it the ultimate host of this stylish party.

The Givenchy brand is venerated in the tradition of couture fashion. And as a brand it is always a leader in design, quality, innovation and consumer recognition. With this particular frame you can add the accolade… GAME CHANGER!

Won’t Get Foiled Again
Penguin rediscovers and literally revises the respected eyewear heritage of foiled, tortoise rims by substituting zyl for the foil. And there’s a new shape standard at work here as the preppy style normally delivered in this look is flattened on the bottom for a cautious and studious flair.

Elongated shapes are making a roaring comeback from being a mainstream staple to being go-to/sell-to designs, especially in the arena of lifestyle branding. And though the style may be simple, the quality plays paramount.

Cat Me if You Can
The cateye, especially at this brilliant extreme, makes it wonderful to note that an optical design with such deep eyewear heritage and just recently on the verge of disappearing has soared back with glistening interest. And as the look proves here, the drama will certainly continue to grow and impact women’s eyewear.

A Hardy Helping
Big Man and Big Boy frames often work best when the horizontal scale is exaggerated, yet lightened by a fade on the bottom of the rim for a classic clubman affront.

Triad and True
Crystal is easily eyewear’s secret weapon when it comes to mixing and mastering multiple color blocking. Here it ices the look of matching blue to white and also does duty as a design element by virtually eliminating the distraction of a lower edge frame rim on the frame face.
