Tommy Hilfiger väljer inte sitt eget brand när det gäller glasögon. Då går han upp en nivå:)
Ray-Ban newest member of the Round-family is little Lily (m4222). A real hit for sunglasses that will end up on Ray-Ban's top 10 here in Sweden. Lily comes in seven colors, including five with color mirrored glass. The frame colors are slightly transparent and the surface is rubbery matte, just like Ray-Ban bestseller Erika. Little Lily is very light and feels comfortable to wear, moreover, the price is affordable, around 1300 kronor. Me and my colleagues are beginning to tire of Ray-Ban, but this little sweetie we relly fell for.
Color mirrored lenses in recent years has grown stronger and this year I think many feel the need to have a couple, at least as a complement to more neutral. Last summer I had an aviator with green mirror glass and even a pair of rose-tinted mirror glass. The green felt completely right the days when it was really sunny and we were off to the beach.

A growing trend for eyeglass frames are pale pastel colors, both transparent and opaque light in "dirty" pink, gray-beige, mild blue or light yellow. It has always been one or another that chose pale glasses but now it is striking that many of us are looking for nude colors. It goes hand-in-hand, or shortly after, really, the neutral make-up trend. You can draw parallels to home decorating trends: bright Scandinavian with light and airy materials. Think baskets, wicker chairs, wicker lamps. Think macramé. Untreated pine. H & M had recently just mildly dirt pink clothes in shop windows and pastels will dominate for a while now, because now it´s springtime :) Just like a black coat and black chairs really are not out but only belong to the basic range at home, are black frames on no way out of the fashion scene. They have just moved to become basic. You who have had a few laps with black or brown frames should definitely consider a purchase of a lighter pair now.
The top two on the left is Céline, below them Marc Jacobs, on the right Oscar Magnuson. In mid gray beige Gucci, underneath them Massada and on the left Vasuma.
En underbar gröngrå ton med matt yta. Runda bågar i acetat med metallbrygga mellan glasen. Handmade. Design by litet oberoende ungt företag. Fodral i ylle med påsydd dekor i obehandlat läder. Det är Massadas Great Gatsby II det gäller, och ni hör själva hur smärtsamt rätt det låter. Prickar in väldigt många glasögontrender just nu. I den första lilla coola klädbutiken som jag och kollegorna klev in i när vi var i London nyligen, där hade tjejen i kassan Great Gatsby II på näsan fast i havannabrun. Hon hade sett dem i ett skyltfönster i Paris och bara känt: de där ska jag ha.
Oliver Goldsmith model Gopas is from 1972 and really nice in matte havana. Here I try it during a visit to Claire Goldmiths / Oliver Goldsmith's stand at 100% Optical in London recently. I love the high quality of the frames and the models are in old times original design.
Here is a link to the newspaper Optics and my column about 100%Optical.
