Fashion month is in full swing, and our team at Central Oregon Eyecare has been inspired by the design vision at New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Our favorite Top 6 NYFW Spring Trends can be added to your collection today with current eyewear styles!
1 | Shiny Happy People Marc by Marc Jacobs glanced back to the Rave culture of the early 90′s for their Spring 2015 NYFW collections. Shiny black acetate frames can mimic the latex pants at Marc by Marc Jacobs, while colorful glasses can integrate the bright spirit of the era.
2 | Underworld Reflections on water, strong silhouettes devolving into fluid shapes were all inspirations at Dolce & Gabbana. Linda Fargo of Bergdorf Goodman noted that the designs were “long and lean and clean, but the fabrics are still luxurious”. Classic frames are given fresh life with blue tones in dark navy and azure, and can also be a flattering replacement to black glasses.
3 | Bardot A number of designers, including Prada, drew inspiration from the late 1950′s and early 1960′s. Justin O’Shea commented that designers found a way to “blend contrasts together”. Cat eye glasses, with their feminine upswept temples provide a perfect nod to this era and, as designers noted, “don’t you want to have a little charm in your life?”
4 | C’est Chic If you’re looking to break away from the restraint of the 1950′s, designers at Tom Ford looked to the decadence of the 1970′s for their Spring 2014 wardrobes. Andrew Bolton notes that the look is not a carbon-copy of the period as design, fabrics and “how they style it makes it more modern”. The essence of the era can be woven into your pieces through metal detailing, deep color tones and creative adornments.
5 | Breakthrough Designers presented a “downtown, cool, uniform, sporty edge” on the runway. Pieces that seemed restrained or tailored, when inspected had fabrics and design that displayed a deconstructed edge. Nicole Phelps notes that it is “so interesting to see them break apart these really traditional codes of Americana”. Glean inspiration from this style with traditional frame shapes that are made new with patterns and color ribbons peeking through modern acetates.
6 | Citadel Military themes and its color palette become an ideal neutral base to allow pops of color and intricate details to shine. Designers used cargo to highlight pieces in vibrant hues. Shades from a utilitarian theme ranged from light moss to dark olive and ranged from casual to luxurious cocktail with satin fabrics and elegant beadwork. Find the ideal shade of army greens to flatter your skin tone and provide a new neutral in your wardrobe through your glasses style.
