In-Trick-It Patterns

Floral embroidery. Chic and fanciful designs. Reptilian textures. An artistic spray of stones and studs. Horn, wood grains and tortoise tones… all weaving intricate—and intriguing—patterns through this season’s stylish eyewear accessories. But another pattern is also emerging: the evolution of optical accessories into essential fashion statements. Beautiful stand-alone necklaces that just happen to hold eyeglasses. Striking bags specifically designed for frames—and so much more. High-quality, high-fashion readers readily Rxable. There’s no trick here. These pieces truly pull a look together and definitely round out a sale.
