Dig deep into that powerful well of proud eyewear style traditions, and mainstays such as double-brows and insightful semi-rimless suddenly feel (naughty and…) fresh… especially
on the right (read: COOL) guy.

Revolt into Style
Dsquared2 layers the clubman look onto a rather radical CatEye shape for a visual statement that is at once youthful, daring and... haute classic.
DSQUARED2 5152 Esther from Marcolin USA/Viva
If there is a lighter, slighter, righter aviator out there... it must be... invisible.
POLE from Gotti Switzerland
Home Sweet Home... Girl
Even the sleekest, sexy feminine frame can make a rockin’ attitude statement on the right face.
SERAPHIN Ridge from Ogi Eyewear
Deep Blue See
Near black (but decidedly DARK blue), the depth of style on this eyewear is distinctly reinforced by the carbon fiber checkerboarding of its temples. Could be Nautica’s boldest eyewear statement EVER.
NAUTICA 8101 from Marchon Eyewear
The Black (frame!) Keys in Concert
Matte Black. Jack Black. Black Keys. Black Crowes. You get the point. FLAT Black is the new Black.

Half Moon Bay
The drastic “split/fade” is officially the hottest color fad in GenEYE
eyewear. The lower frost effect here is style at its brazen best.

It’s All OVAL Now
Might well be time for the CatEye to be cautious. Why? The lush oval (especially in plastic-fantastique) is making a luscious lady-like play for the women’s eyewear trend
of the season.
