As a London personal stylist and passionate specs wearer myself I`m devoted to keeping up with new styles of the finest eyewear by taking note of which designers are influencing what we are to wear this season. My recent collaboration with Eye Site Opticians has been a success and there`s a future in eye styling that`s for sure! If you take pride in your appearance by wearing beautifully styled outfits then it`s time to inject your personality into some of the hottest designer eyewear – take note, our SS13 eyewear trend report is about to be revealed.
Since their inaugural launch in 2012, Celine have brought a new breath of fresh air to the eyewear game. You can literally close your eyes and end up with some amazing frame styles this season. Here`s a sneaky peak of Celine`s resounding neoteric collection.
Who`s wearing Celine? Kim Kardashian and Alessandro Ambrosio both seem to love what Celine are doing so if you admire their style why not open your eyes to these fabulous designs.
Not quite the full frontal pearl vintage Chanel`s (as worn by Rhianna at the Victoria Secret fashion show). But then again, how many of us have sold 75 million singles and can flaunt such a piece? This version is elegantly made for the people, by the Masters of their craft, Chanel.
Who`s wearing Chanel? Pippa Middleton and Frankie from The Saturdays. This frame is beautifully formed and there`s no doubt to me that class is where it`s at!
A sure fire head turner and an instant classic from Dior. This is serious `pastel eye candyâ€ of the highest order. This frame is perfect for spring and ties in nicely with the sugar candy palettes and angelic whites fashion has to offer.
Who`s wearing Dior? Charlize Theron and Madonna both seem to love a statement accessory and sunglasses are no exception.
The meteoric comeback of the cat eye style, has had a wave of designers producing their own take on the original design. Dita as standard, have crafted a beast here, that will have its customary rippling effect on every guest list across the globe
Who`s wearing Dita? Countless A-list celebs, J`Lo and Halle Berry, which fits in quite nicely with her recent role as feline superhero character Cat Woman.
Italia Independent is truly unique and they are a lot of fun. The range features textures of corduroy and velvet, and some flamboyant colour schemes too. If you see someone wearing these, you know they`re having a good time. If you have an artistic style then you`ll pull of these styles effortlessly.
Who`s wearing I.I.? Jessica Alba and Karl Lagerfeld demonstrate that two extremes of personality adore wearing these frames – they`ll be something to suit everyone and every quirk imaginable.
You can`t compile a top 10 (or 7 in my case) of anything nowadays without Mr (Tom) Ford appearing somewhere on the list. Potentially as iconic as the Prada Baroque? Maybe – but certainly one of the sassiest round eye sunglasses on the market, AND in its second season running. Tom Ford frames are definitely a fave avec moi and I really can`t fault a single thing he does – just adore, admire and adorn!
Who`s wearing Tom Ford? Jennifer Aniston and Rita Ora are admirers of these classic styles with a twist – they`re easy to wear and make just enough of an understated statement in my eyes.
Lanvin, the oldest French couture house is experiencing a new lease of life. Both their clothing lines and eyewear collections have experienced fantastic press lately with people lusting after this style change. Wear Retro chic jewels and bohemian luxury at the top level. We say `Love Lanvinâ€.
Who`s wearing Lanvin? Beyonce and Elle`s Anne Marie Curtis – need I say no more?…
All sunglasses are available from Eye Site Opticians.
