There are a lot of fashion runway shows. First you have the international show, New York, Milan, Paris, Japan, China, South America and more. Then each is broken into seasons: Fall Winter, Pre Fall Winter, Resort, Fall Winter Ready to Wear, Spring Summer, Spring Summer Ready to Wear, Pre Spring Summer.. It is a constant barrage of style you just have to have as each designer competes for the best.
Fortunately for eyecare professionals, sunwear and eyewear is shown on many runways, and many of those will show up in your rep sample cases a few months later.
Many of the styles are basic, retro, large and round and then there is the fun stuff. Here are our top pics for the most unusual Sunglasses and Eyeglasses for Spring Summer 2015.
Thom Browne always has funky fashions as well as eyewear. The mirrored and rimless flowers are the crowning point to his whacked out fashions.
Don’t for the Men- Thom Browne version of a schoolboy gone mad.
We have seen Floral Frames for the last 2-3 years. I don’t know if these Daisy prints are painted or are an intricate detail. Shields are still making a showing on the runways.
This ribboned sunglass temple can be made into a scarf, turban or headband.
One of my favorites Moshino with Jeremy Scott, never fails to grind a smile. Jewel studded cat-eyes made the runways with a Barbie Show.
Star Studded over a round frame from Cavalli.
Kenzo, with another ‘shield look’
But the winner is the Cyborg shield also from Kenzo.
New York, Paris and Milan are Not the only companies that have fashion shows. The Moon, The Stars and the Sun were seen from Mexican designer Pink Magnolia.
I had never heard of Libertine, but like the name. Classic specs with beadwork.
Not to forget the men. Just as women have tons of shows, so do men. We liked the eyeglass cord from Kenzo.
For men, Thom Browne’s has this Sherlock Holmes type of hard, with a game piece and the eyewear is a clear mask. This will make a fashion statement for those who have a little germ phobia.
KTZ- did an Urban Warrior show. Gladiator goes futuristic.
Which is your favorite?
