NYFW 2017: Eyewear Trends

We may be in the midst of one of the busiest business months of the fashion calendar having just finished New York and London Fashion Week. This means that designers, celebrities and fashion-lovers alike are putting their best foot, and lenses, forward to stand out in the style stakes.

Across the runways, front rows and bustling streets of New York, designers, celebrities and fashion fans have shown an array of trendsetting eyewear styles. From Madonna’s front row Diva look, to various edgy street style looks,  the dreary and cold weather has not stopped fashionistas from wearing some seriously cool lenses.

We have complied some of the best eyewear styles from New York Fashion week, and how to get the look for yourself.


Madonna FROW at Phillip Plein

When seated on the prestigious FROW of Phillip Plein’s NY show, next to the likes of Kylie Jenner and many other famous faces, Madonna chose to cover most of hers with oversized black sunglasses.

While you may think: diva alert! But, realistically if we had 50 camera bulbs flashing towards our face on a daily basis, we would reach for the biggest & darkest sunnies we could get our hands on.

We think these Porsche Design sunglasses for £185 are sure to turn heads. Whether you’re in the front row or turning the street into your own catwalk.

Porsche Design £185


Jenna Lyons FROW at Mara Hoffman

Jenna Lyons rocked her iconic wide rimmed lenses while seated front row at Mara Hoffman. Flanked by two equally stylish friends who opted for tinted lenses.

Sunglasses with subtle coloured lenses are the perfect answer to wearing shades indoors. Not to mention, this style was littered across the Fall ’17 Runways. A definite style to keep an eye on.

Why not try bold rims for your everyday optical needs? Own your prescription as Jenna has done so stylishly.

If you want to try the latest trendy coloured lenses, our Dolce & Gabbana pick are the perfect choice.

Dolce & Gabbana £148.61

Tom Ford £264.50

Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacob’s fashion & interactive art show was heavily influenced by New York’s modern hip hop culture. With eyewear being a huge contender in this subculture and style.

Retro style round and square aviators were paired with tracksuits, minidresses and an abundance of gold jewellery. Both these styles are easily achievable as these casual styles of sunglasses circle back into style.

Univo, £18.30

These Univo, £18.30, retro style framed glasses are perfect to recreate Marc Jacob’s 90s runway look, and they won’t break the bank!

These wide frame INVU£36.96 style sunglasses are perfect for any face shape, and their all black design means they will go with any outfit, but more importantly, they’re a great contemporary take on a classic eyewear style.


Custo Barcelona

Custo Barcelona presented a vibrant and exciting collection during NYFW, and sunglasses played a huge part.

Coloured lenses in shades of red and pink proved to be popular. Models were dressed in all black futuristic styles.

The Caroline Herrera and Prada styles below both reflect the core theme present at the Custo Barcelona show. Red lenses simply pop. The black & gunmetal grey frames are futuristic.

Both styles are modern, fashion forward, but still ideal for everyday wear.
