Out Of The Ordinary

Out Of The Ordinary!

This post is also available in: العربية हिन्दी 简体中文

‘Normal’, ‘usual’, ‘common’… no one wants to be associated with these adjectives anymore. Eyewear fashion is all about experimenting and being more than just ordinary…

The eyewear landscape has changed dramatically during the last decade. People have been sporting various types of shapes and shades, which probably would have made the earlier generations cringe. The evolution of design and styles in eyewear is something that’s been happening ever since eyewear became a fashion symbol and it looks like it’s getting crazier than ever.

Eyewear has become more of a fashion quotient, a style statement and an integral part of one’s identity. And when it comes to making an appearance, eyewear can be the ultimate game changer. There is no better accessory that can enhance your look while blending perfectly with your style, than an amazing pair of eyewear.

They simply add a hint of charm to one’s look, so why go with the same ol’ round, rectangle or cat eye? Or why even black, blue or transparent for that matter? Why not something more creative, something more artistic, something different, perhaps a tint towards the unusual?!

2019 has a lot in store for those who are interested to sport fashionable eyewear. With the wearers going all bold and unconventional with their choices, eyewear brands are doing their best to keep up with the demands and the competition. Get your new season shopping inspiration with this compilation of the most artistic eyewear designs. 

The Bling

Givenchy – GV 7136S

Glitz, glam and glitter can never get old. From sunglasses to prescription specs, sparkly embellishments have taken centre-stage. They are alluring, appealing and attractive. Love them or hate them, but they will be noticed. These glitter goddesses are slowly and steadily taking roots in the market, and in people’s hearts.

Givenchy’s GV Shower  was one of the most dramatic pieces on the runway at GIVENCHY’s Spring-Summer 2019 show. Like the Podium jewellery line, this style is inspired by rain showers and is rendered in precious-looking materials, a metaphor for nature’s perpetual state of transformation. Crystal fringe sways around the face as the wearer moves, like shimmering raindrops. Created in a limited series, the GV Shower is available with clear or tinted gray lenses, and with adjustable nose pads for ease of wear.

Jimmy Choo – Bee

Jimmy Choo, a brand that encompasses complete luxury, class and charm, has a few interesting things to offer. Audrey and Bee are both, bold and crystal plexiglass geometric shaped frames, uniquely adorned with hand set Swarovski precious gems. The Bee sunglasses have the additional feature of the glamorous CHOO metal charm attached to the temple tips.

Jimmy Choo – Donna

The DONNA sunglasses are a new geometrical silhouette with chevron hardware detail on the arm. Innovative powdered glitter inlays enhance the frames presented in classic black, tortoiseshell, cherry, glittery silver and baby pink.
