Out with the Old, in with the Blue!

Cheers to 2016! Let’s make a New Year’s Resolution that is actually going to be fun to stick to. It seems pretty normal to clean out our closets to get rid of the old to make room for the new. In doing so we are keeping up with the most up to date clothing styles, accessories and shoes!  Updating our wardrobe is fun, and makes us feel good. However, let’s not forget to include new and fashionable eyewear into our look for 2016.

A new pair of glasses and sunglasses is the perfect  way to complete your new look from head to toe. Thankfully, still trending in fashion eyewear is the color blue. I consider blue to be the new black. One of my favorite designers, Robert Marc has been incorporating various shades of blue into his collection for years.  Robert Marc 2015 Fall/Winter Collection was inspired by American Abstract painters. These beautiful acetanium frames showcase a pallet of blues including, Teal-Azure, Nightfall-Mulberry, and Cobalt-Raw Sienna.

Jumping right into 2016 Robert Marc has not disappointed us.  Robert Marc 2016 Resort Collection continues to feature bright, yet very compatible shades of blue that will complement any wardrobe while enhancing your beautiful eyes.

Robert Marc’s inspiration for this collection happens to be Palm Beach. Just visualizing the beautiful blues of Palm Beach makes me think I need this color in my life. This is Robert Marc’s representation. Take a look at  Mar-a-Lago and Breakers Blue.

What do you say?  Can we get out with old and in with the blue? For additional inspiration visit VizioOptic.com where you can see just how many luxury eyeglass  brands are making room for blue acetanium frames. See you there.

Here we go! Let’s talk about what makes high end designer eyeglass frames so special. Eyeglass frames have transformed over the years into more than just the three basic types of frames (Plastic/Zyl, Wire/Metal, and Rimless/Drilled). Every designer brand of eye wear has a story and technology behind them to make their frames extra special for you. Designer frames have added new materials into the mix leaving them more durable, comfortable, hypoallergenic, and of course more fashion forward. Here are some of my favorite designer brands that have changed the world of eye wear for all of us.
Did you know that Prodesign has created select frame styles that are biodegradable? They have the appearance of natural wood and are lightly textured. They are stylish and eco-friendly. MYKITA is another innovative designer brand of eye wear that has added the Mykita Mylon collection to their already high-tech and fashionable design. In addition to Mykita’s original collection of hand assembled, stainless steel, light weight frames that have no screws, the Mylon collection uses laser sintering, geometrical configuration, and polyamide powder to create a colorful and 3D looking frame. They are eyeglass frames of the future.

Lindberg eye wear takes minimal, rimless and lightweight frames to a level of superior quality and design. Lindberg eye wear offers a wide range of lens shapes ranging from classic to a little bit edgy. The frame supporting can be customized to your specific likings with colors that are true to the titanium and not painted on. As the Lindberg collection has grown it has incorporated lightly framed face fronts made of acetate and titanium. This entire collection has given new meaning and excitement for all those who want to wear a minimal frame and still grab the attention of admirers passing by.
