Ever since the Dolce & Gabbana ‘Renaissance’ collections hit our runways a few years back, accessories have just been getting more and more elaborate. Eyewear has been getting fancier by the season (and by fancier, we mean crazier).
With some serious love for huge oversized plastic rims, colourful gems and wild prints. And whilst we’ve seen plenty of wacky works of art in eyewear over the last year or so, this hot new trend is less about the lens shape or colour and all about the way lenses are framed. It’s what goes around the outside that counts, so step up your frame game and turn up the fun with some fancy framing in SS18.
Dolce & Gabbana DG4315B
These fab frames are not for the fashion shy. Round gradient lenses are encased with a HUGE oversized plastic rim for full coverage of the face (so Hollywood darling!) and finished with pretty pink and green gemstones.
Miu Miu MU 01SS
Channel some peace and love with these 60s/70s inspired Miu Miu shades, framed lovingly with beautiful love hearts. The layering makes these frames utterly unique, and such a great style to wear at festivals next summer.
Prada PR 23NS
Fashion doesn’t get fancier than Prada. They’ve been paving the way for this fancy eyewear trend for a while now with their sell-out ‘Baroque’ sunglasses. And this iconic silhouette has just had a makeover, taking the original Baroque design and extending the frame front for an exaggerated finish. Talk about show-stopping…
Dolce & Gabbana DG6111
Can a frame be full of fancy yet understated at the same time? These pretty pink shades appear to be just that. Oversized and exaggerated enough for a bit of va va voom, whilst still keeping it classy and sophisticated. The ultimate eyewear piece for women who love timeless with a fashion-forward edge.
Dolce & Gabbana DG4289
These shades from Dolce & Gabbana are so much fun and they certainly add a sense of playfulness to the faithful leopard print. The novelty inspired plastic rim takes cat-eye to a whole new level and the red trim creates a luxurious designer finish.
MaxMara Occhiali MM PRISM VI
Chic, elegant and oh so A-list. These fab oversized frames are big enough to stop traffic and the beautiful print adds another dimension to your look. The colour combinations work so well together, so will work effortlessly with your summer or winter wardrobe.
