Everyone stop what you’re doing - put down the mince pies… and the mulled wine and get ready to welcome the 2018 New Year!! As most people are cheering on ‘out with the old and in with the new” I thought it’d be a great opportunity to reflect back on just a handful of the amazing pieces that dropped in 2017 that will continue on into the new year.
CHANEL - BUTTERFLY RUN WAY
Bold and beautiful. Chanel really turned heads with this unique piece. The Chanel Butterfly is made up of its statement shape, 8 different contrasting colour ways and all featuring 18karat gold lenses. This screams elegance, class and luxury all in one.
JIMMY CHOO – LASH/S
It’s all in the detail! Mix and match your ‘eyebrows’ with the Jimmy Choo Lash/s. This innovative design features two different pairs of detachable ‘eyebrows’ with each piece - switch it up depending on your mood or outfit. A definite must in every eyewear-addict’s collection.
DIOR - POP
The perfect Pop of colour! Simple, yet extremely effective the Dior Pop is all lens with a quirky twist - a personal favourite of mine. This piece is giving me major 70’s vibes with its lightly tinted lenses featured in pink, purple, yellow and blue. The Pop was heavily featured in magazines and even in a music video. If you haven’t already seen it please feel free to check out Dua Lipa – New Rules music video.
TOM FORD - JACQUELIN
Way ahead of it’s time; The Jacquelyn is super oversized and stylish. If you’ve read my previous blog (which I know you most definitely have) you will already know large metal frames are key trends going into the new year. The mirrored lenses are an obvious crowd pleaser but the large cat-eye shape is the headliner for me.
I think 2017 has been an amazing year for colour and design and I‘m so excited to see what the New Year brings - and not just in our eyewear. Wishing you all the best going into the New Year and I look forward to seeing you in store very soon!!!
