Tom Ford Autumn/ Winter 2018-2019 Eyewear Collection

Large shapes and extra thick rims, particularly in the lower front, feature prominently in this striking collection of vintage-inspired sunglasses and eyeglasses. Infinity, one of Tom Ford’s most iconic symbols, is reproduced throughout the collection in a flat metal version to celebrate feminine strength and sensuality. Minimalism is combined with dynamic details, which are enhanced through the use of thin acetates and sophisticated side and front spoilers. The collection is available at Tom Ford boutiques and major outlets across the region.

Ermenegildo Zegna Autumn/Winter 2018- 2019 Eyewear Collection

Italian eyewear powerhouse Marcolin Group and luxury fashion company Ermenegildo Zegna Group have unveiled a new collection for sophisticated and stylish men. It revolves around four concepts that bridge the gap between fashion and functionality.

The first concept is the ‘Chevron’, which is based on the texture of Zegna fabrics and reinterpreted with personalised pins on the front frame and metal temples. The second is the ‘Shape’, which traces the outline of all the models and plays on the use of well-defined angles and large volumes. The third concept is ‘Vicuña’, the colour used on the metal bridges or temples of all the models. Finally, the ‘Touch’, which uses saffian effect leather or a scratched look on the end pieces, creates a sophisticated tactile effect.

The sunglass and optical collections feature a simple, straight-line design and are constructed with aesthetic and technical details, which strengthen and individualise their identity. They are available from select retailers across the region.

Roberto Cavalli Autumn/Winter 2018- 2019 Eyewear Collection

This chic range of sunglasses and eyeglasses is designed for modern, alluring, feminine, and dynamic women. The collection’s inspiration comes from four main concepts, the first of which is circles. The brand’s logo in the temples and mirror lenses brings a modern accent to the shapes, while the slim, bevelled profiles add a touch of lightness.

The second concept is a ‘50s-inspired look with substantial profiles, transparent colours, and crystals on the frame fronts. The last two concepts incorporate snake and butterfly-shaped detailing. The snake is interpreted in various forms and can be found on the temples and on the bridges of the frames, making the models even more distinctive. The butterfly models are embellished with hand- applied crystals and represent the more luxe side of the maison. The collection is available at Roberto Cavalli boutiques and all major retailers across the region.

GUESS Autumn/Winter 2018- 2019 Eyewear Collection

This new collection of sunglasses and eyeglasses, for men and women, celebrates femininity with a touch of fun. Classic frames are revisited and revamped by incorporating bold ideas and innovative new designs. Subtly logoed, easy- to-wear styles alternate with distinctive designs that feature the logo more prominently. Eye- catching patterns and animal prints complement the collection, which is inspired by 1950’s shapes, reworked in a modern way.

Metal is used as a diagonal contrasting element in the acetate of the temples and sparkling glitter is featured tastefully to brighten the entire look. Gradient lenses in different rainbow hues complement the frames and feature small rock & roll inspired studs and crystal hearts, which give the range a punk-inspired look. The new collection is available at Guess boutiques and select eyewear stores across the region.
