We are seeing red… on the runways, on the “red carpet” and on sport eyewear—a little, an accent or two, and a lot, a completely red frame and/or red lenses. What better color? Think sport cars. Think heat, energy, passion. Think red. In fact, actual studies indicate red carries the strongest reaction of all colors, catching people’s attention immediately. So wave that flag and go right on red… for sports eyewear.
