It’s official: Millenial pink is the colour of the moment and it shows no signs of slowing down. With the pastel hue appearing on everything from clothing, interiors, to instagram-worthy packaging, it’s no surprise the trend has spread to eyewear too. Of course, rose-tinted lenses are nothing new in the industry. The style was hugely popular in the 90s and early 00s but it’s made a huge comeback for SS17.
Once a firm favorite with the likes of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, pink sunnies are now being favored by fashion it girls including Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez. So if that’s not a reason to invest, we don’t know what is.
