Trend Alert: Back to The Future (Futuristic Eyewear)

From Dior to Miu Miu, MaxMara to Prada, there are so many designer brands jumping on the futuristic bandwagon. We’re heading back to the future with eyewear in SS18 and here are some of the looks that you won’t want to miss. Including big space-age style visors, oversized frames with great coverage, bold and bright geos, and reflective silver specs featuring awesome metalwork.

Oversized from Miu Miu

The Miu Miu eyewear range has always been full of personality. So it’s no surprise that their SS18 collection is utterly unique, taking on the futuristic trend with their own fun narrative.

These shades have a stand-out look, featuring an oversized semi-rimmed frame front, deconstructive metal accents, block colour elements, and exaggerated frame arms for added style confidence. Part fashion accessory, part work goggle – these frames have ‘futuristic utility’ nailed.

Reflectives from Dior

Dior continue with their hugely successful reflective range, this time with a futuristic twist. These shield sunglasses feature a single lens that flows seamlessly across the frame front and they guarantee great coverage and protection from the sun.

Casual enough to style with your everyday wardrobe, yet glam enough for a big summer event. Available in 3 different colours designs at Select Specs…

Complex Metals from Miu Miu

Intricate metalwork and a deconstructed design make these frames from Miu Miu a must-have.

Silver is a key colour trend for next year, but these shades are also available in a pale gold and antique gold finishes.
