Gallery: eyewear for summer
Johannesburg - Sunglass Hut has revealed a preview of the designer eyewear collections for spring/summer 2013.
The key trends are:
SIXTIES MOD: The 1960s are back on the runways. The trend takes square and white frames into summer styles. Prada takes shades into a different playground with quirky finishes and androgynous forms.
METALLICS: Gold, silver and colour metallics signal affluence, opulence and elegance. Burberry and Miu Mius’ metallic ranges take basic frames and add a futuristic twist.
FLORAL: Floral is known to be a summer hit. This season Dolce & Gabbana takes it to the extreme with exorbitant floral embellishments.
STRIPES: Stripes top to toe can be daunting, but having them only on an accessory puts you in front with fashion this season. Streaks and strokes are seen on sunglasses from Vivienne Westwood, Moschino and Dolce & Gabbana.
BOLD BRIGHTS: Bold colours appear across all collections, from bright Georgio Armani sunglasses to lighter Vogue shades. - The Star
