When it comes to on-trend eyewear, Marc Jacobs is always on the cutting edge of fashion. Just like those iconic Marc Jacob’s handbags, the brand’s eyewear collection has become a cult favourite over the past few years thanks to their unique frames and avante-garde designs.

In fact, Marc Jacob’s has become a master of the humble accessory and knows the importance of adding a great finishing touch to an outfit. He was once quoted as saying:

Any opportunity to adorn oneself is human, and accessories are an easy way to do it.

This season, the American designer has released a new collection of shades for SS16 that breathes new life into sunglasses style. The shades featured in the brand’s recent Scream Team campaign which celebrated the beauty of individuality and uniqueness.

Sunglasses are a perfect way to update your look for SS16. So, if you’re looking for some summer style inspiration, let’s take a look at 3 key styles from the latest Marc Jacobs eyewear collection.

Contemporary Cat Eye Shades

One of the most stand-out styles from the Marc Jacobs SS16 eyewear collection puts a twist on an old classic. The cat eye frame has been re-invented with a cool and contemporary new design that’s set to become one of the most popular styles of 2016. It has a vintage yet futuristic feel that’s perfect if you want to make a style statement with your eyewear.

The Marc Jacobs MARC 10/S sunglasses feature a lightweight design with double metal wire frames and round mirrored lenses that seem to float in the centre.

For an alternative take on this trend, the Marc Jacobs MARC 1/S sunglasses combine a cat eye frame with chunky acetate arms, giving them a contemporary look. Shop them in a range of colours at SelectSpecs.

Stylish Round Sunglasses

Round sunglasses are having a moment right now. They’re one of the hottest styles of the season so it’s no surprise that this shape features heavily in the latest collection from Marc Jacobs.

The SS16 eyewear collection showcases styles inspired by retro round sunglasses that have been combined with modern fabrics and finishes. We love the Marc Jacobs MARC 2/S sunglasses, which were featured in a recent Marc Jacobs photoshoot. Round lenses are framed by statement acetate and metal for an original look.
