Looking Forward – SS18 – Part Three includes brands such as Tom Ford, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, and Prada. Six frames, consisting of mens, womans, and childrens, are prime examples of the directions each brand are taking this year, in fashion, but more importantly, eyewear.
Four of our favourite brands give us a quick glimpse into what’s in store for the year ahead. Dolce & Gabbana appear to be putting their best foot forward, having featured in both part one, and two of our Looking Forward series. Miu Miu and Tom Ford offer signature styles, full of life and style, each maintaining strong characteristics of the brand. Prada offers an age old favourite, along with a frame complicit with high end fashion, and typically found on the run way. Looking Forward – SS18 – Part Three
MIU MIU ROUND CAT EYE
Miu Miu’s impeding release of the Round Cat Eye, which includes traits from last years most popular style. A touch of colour around the oversize lens is a unique feature, with feline femininity coming at you from all angles. Metal details compliment the frame perfectly, the classic square metal bridge, which we have seen in many frames, is a signature of Miu Miu.
DOLCE & GABBANA QUEEN OF HEARTS BOLD CAT EYE
The Queen Of Hearts has been a huge movement within Dolce & Gabbana, a design style which first appeared in part two. Reds, blues, gold, silver and white can be found on the Jack, Queen, and King, which are strong and powerful colours to incorporate into an entire collection. The frame uses clear bold acetate for the full frame, which adds to the powerful look at the heart of the design. A golden pattern adds a touch of class into the cat eye shape frame.
DOLCE & GABBANA MULTI COLOUR PATTERN KIDS
Dolce & Gabbana give us the second frame in as many years designed for children. The frame is packed full of colourful patterns, which will encourage your child to wear protection against the sun, while maintaining a fashionable side. Originally, D&G had a design in the shape of a cat eye, however the wayfarer style is still as popular in 2018 as ever.
PRADA DOUBLE BRIDGE CLUBMASTER
A round eye with a double bridge came into the forefront in late 2017, with the trend continuing into the year ahead. Prada capitalise on a classic style, and a definite hit for SS18. The black on black frame you see above remains subtle, with a robust yet stylish extra sturdiness in the double bridge.
TOM FORD AVA FT572 LARGE METAL ROUND EYE
Tom Ford yet again take our breath away with a full metal, large round eye frame. Issued the title Ava, the frame is set to make a big impact during 2018. Ava comes with a metal finish, with mirror lenses a beautiful finish to the frame. Signature ‘T’ that run down either temple give the tell tale signs of a Tom Ford frame. The FT572 is due on the site in the coming months, as we prepare for the SS18 rush.
