Eyewear & Style: End-of-year trends
Some will say that it is time for this painful year 2020 to end. While the optics-eyewear sector has suffered a number of turmoils for several months, it is time to make our annual update on eyewear trends for the end of the year.
Eyewear trends: styles that assert themselves!
From the end of summer and the arrival of autumn, trends already seen during different periods were confirmed. Thus, the rise of round shapes glimpsed over the past few months is confirmed, while growing thicker.
The proportions of the frames are widening to give them more body . Be careful, however, when trying on: they must not go beyond the contours of the face.
On the women's side, more than ever, we give pride of place to bold geometric shapes . To increase the personality, we push back the contours, we redefine the curves, we widen the ends to highlight the look.
On the men's side too, we find more and more material. After the minimalist and discreet trends , we are happy to give color . We do not hesitate to play with noble and elegant materials , such as wood. We don't hesitate to innovate either, thanks to 3D printing , which offers limitless possibilities!
Focus on sustainability
What makes the elegance of an optical or sunglasses frame is also its propensity to last over time. The choice of materials is important. The very traceability of a frame gives it credibility. Discover the superb Gold and Wood presentation video.
Regarding colors, we will work for liveliness , again, for more personality. But also to contrast with the very natural tendency in the choice of materials used. Metal, wood, titanium, acetate need life. To do this, we add yellow, green and orange, sometimes in a very sober way, sometimes not.
An example with these Etnia Barcelona models:
We also add texture. The patterns, already very trendy in 2019, confirm their revival. Tortoise, scales and other patterns, once a guarantee of eccentricity , are more and more present. A trend to be confirmed with the onset of winter!
