RED HOT ROUND-UP | SUNGLASSES NEWS DECEMBER 24TH – DECEMBER 30TH
We’re at that in between stage now – after Christmas, waiting for New Years Eve – when nobody knows who they are, what day of the week it is and are living off a chocolate and roast potato based diet. Is there anything better? Sit back and enjoy the Sunday news from the eyewear industry.
One of our top-selling brands Oakley have announced an exciting and bold collaboration with French clothing brand Vetements. The style merges the classic sports design Oakley is known for, with bright mirrored lenses and a curved frame and arms, with an edgy twist from Vetements: gold studs. If you’re on the hunt for the ultimate statement shades then these are for you. They were first showcased at Vetements’ Spring/Summer 2019 runway show and their blend of performance and street style made them an immediate hit. You can pre-order them now for €890.
Of course, not all of us have a spare 890 quid laying around, but that doesn’t mean you need to miss out. Here’s a top style from Oakley from our Christmas sale. This pair of Radarlock Path frames are perfect for adventurers and are on sale at half price!
One of our favourite Christmas eyewear campaigns came from Ray-Ban this year. In a series of cosy fireside photos, a family styled their latest colourful frames. Christmas jumpers, Christmas crackers, baubles, tinsel, and toys: Ray-Ban knows how to celebrate the festive season.
Their social media campaign features some of the top frames for kids that you can pick up on our site. Whether your child likes the vintage thin wire frame look, or a bold block colour, we’ve got a pair for them.
Here’s a top Ray-Ban Junior style for a festive treat for you child:
Cazal are also announcing some exciting new launches. The new round 9080 frames are set to go on sale in January, making transitioning into the New Year a whole lot easier. Cazal never follow the trends and this new style showcases their individuality as always.
The metal bridge detailing, featuring in gold or gunmetal, nods back to their streetwear 80s roots while also showcasing a modern edge. We can’t wait for their launch.
Finally, Alina Paul stepped out looking truly glamorous in a long fur trim coat, a black bodice, elegant stilettos, and a pair of Gucci frames.
Her photoshoot had us forgetting it was even winter.
Alina wears the Gucci Peaked Round Sunglasses in Black.
Have a happy New Year! There’ll be more exciting news to come in 2019.
