Here’s a little look back at some of the eyewear trends as seen on London Fashion Week SS17 catwalks back in September. From uber futuristic and a fun twist on classic to the super-popular mirror lens and retro silhouettes, SS17 eyewear has a lot to offer.
Here are some of the coolest trends coming soon in the spring / summer season next year.
Ultra Narrow Cateye
Cat’s eye sunglasses just got a serious squishing! As seen on the Ashley Williams catwalk, super narrow lenses are hot for 2017 and this includes a distorted cateye frame that looks like it’s been squashed vertically.
We love this exaggerated look and if you have a small face, this style of cateye may suit you a lot better than the oversized glasses. Steal SS17 style with the Moschino MO695 shades, available in 3 chic colours.
The Futuristic Visor

Also seen at the Ashley Williams show were visor style shades; this style of frame oozes fun and futuristic, with a touch of sports luxe.
There’s a cool androgynous feel to it and you can get the look with these Porsche Design P8571 (designed for men but will also fit women).

According the House of Holland’s army of runway models, mirror lenses are here to stay. This awesome trend has stuck around for a while now and for SS17, it’s all about aviators.
If you love this on trend look, you’ll love these O’Neill ONS-VITA-P gold mirrored sunglasses, also available in 5 other colours.

Taking inspiration from cute Kawaii fashion, it seems that there will definitely be room for some fun and playful eyewear in the upcoming season. Bringing together two hot trends – mirror lenses and round frames – the shades seen at Markus Lupfer are perfect for festivals.
Festival chic is also about choosing bold colours, like these Ray Ban RB4165 Justin sunglasses, which come in 5 on trend lens colours.

As we’ve seen above, mirror aviators are still a hot commodity. But a new style of aviator has arrived in town, and according to Versace, it’s all about looking flight-ready.
The new aviator is super duper retro, oversized with a geo edge, inspired by the 60s and 70s, and is a little bit on the masculine side. Get the look for next season with the Versace VE2140 sunglasses, hot off the catwalk!
