Eyewear trends of AW21/22

A new season brings new trends and we at NanaWoody&John thought it was about time to get you updated on the eyewear trends of this year’s Fall and Winter season.

Big & Bold

In the past years, thin-rimmed glasses and sunglasses have been very popular. We’ve seen them everywhere. And of course, as happens with so many trends, the opposite of this minimalistic style is now becoming more and more trendy. Say ‘bye bye’ to subtlety and ‘hello!’ to bigger and bolder styles that come in both metal and acetate.

AM EYEWEAR

Distinguishable luxury

The previous trend of big & bold goes hand in hand with the tendency to wear exclusive statement frames as real fashion accessories. It’s perfectly okay for people to notice your glasses or sunglasses and remember them. Don’t ever be shy about wearing glasses and showing people what you like, be proud!  

AKONI

Sustainable eyewear

Just like in other realms of the fashion world, sustainability is getting a lot of attention in the world of eyewear. Brands try to reduce their carbon footprint, streamline their production processes and look for new and better materials to use. Lens companies experiment with using less water while producing lenses and of course, recycling materials is a big thing.

ECO EYEWEAR

Slow fashion

A big part of becoming more sustainable as an eyewear brand is making your customers aware of the importance of buying high-quality glasses and sunglasses that will last you a long time. No need to throw away your frames after just one season because of faulty screws, a bad fit, or cheap materials that scratch and break. Fast fashion is so last season.

EQUE.M

Tinted lenses

We saw this trend first with rimless frames, but it soon extended to other styles. With tinted lenses, you can give the frame of your choice that bit extra and make them more fitting with your personal style and taste. The best opticians out there offer a wide range of options from soft pink or orange to cooler tones like blue and green.

LIU-JO

Unisex

Why constrict yourself to women’s glasses when you can also rock some cool, bold frames from Cazal? And if you love a cat-eye, why not wear it even though you’re a guy? No one can decide which frames work for you and which do not, but you. Be yourself, choose whatever you like and rock that style!

It’s all in the details

It’s all in the details

Luxury eyewear brands are not only distinguishing themselves from other brands by the use of high-quality materials and production techniques, but also by the designs of the frames. The attention to detail is unmatched, but not always visible immediately.

All Theo frames have their own unique temple tip

 

Tips that give a frame that bit of extra at Anne & Valentin

When you wear your glasses, people see the front. They’ll notice the use of color or print, maybe an interesting mix of materials like metal with acetate, and details of the nose bridge. The rest of the design is often hidden behind the wearer’s hair and ears: the temple and temple tips.

Balmain Eyewear is known for elaborate detailing  on the temples

But there are brands where the design of a frame isn’t limited to the part that is always fully visible: the front. On the contrary, the temple and temple tips are the parts where they get even more creative. And even if you don’t see them, those details still add to the overall experience of wearing a particular frame.

At RES/REI they love to play around with prints and color for the temples 

Depending a bit on a person's hair style, you can often see the temples of a frame. But the temple tip is almost certainly hidden behind the ear. This doesn’t mean that all brands just add standard tips. Theo, for instance, designs a special temple tip for all their frames. And have you seen the special tips of Face à Face in the form of shoes?

Face à Face temple tips shaped like pumps

At RES/REI they like to play around with colors and mix clear acetate with a printed kind for the temples. Anne & Valentin also pays extra attention to temples and tips. There, they like to vary in temple shapes and mix materials, and the same goes for their temple tips.

Fully rounded temples and tips at RES/REI

We’ve made a nice selection of frames  with cool and interesting details in the temples and temple tips to get you inspired. Ready to see some more? Check out our showrooms of Anne & Valentin, Balmain, Face à Face, RES/REI, and Theo!

Cazal is for all!

Cazal is for all!

Why restrict yourself when it comes to choosing a pair of glasses? Women can look their best with a men's frame, and we love guys who rock cat-eyes. To illustrate our point, here are some women wearing some Cazal frames that are usually worn by men…

A lot of women browse the men’s section of clothing stores for nice sweaters or cool jackets, but not so many think of looking at men’s glasses when searching for new frames. But why not? While super feminine glasses will look absolutely beautiful on some women, others will look way better wearing frames that are a bit bolder and edgier.

 

So, Cazal is a brand that is typically found in the men’s section of opticians. Understandable, but also a bit of a shame because so many women will look super cool with Cazal as well. Cazal glasses and sunglasses have a lot of character and you can’t confuse them with any other brand. They are always unmistakably Cazal. They add character to your face like no other brand does. And as the pictures above prove, that goes for women as well!

More Cazal inspiration can be found in our Cazal showroom!

New shapes and colors from Lunor

New shapes and colors from Lunor

Lunor recently presented us with a new line of optical frames, inspired by mid-century modern styles. And that’s not all. They also added some new colors and frames to two of their existing lines. Let's have a closer look, shall we?

Starting with Lunor's new line called C1. This line of four frames is inspired by mid-century styles but then translated to the 21st century. It consists of two panto shapes, an anatomic and an octagon shape. Made of titanium, with a line of acetate that accentuates the eyebrow area, all frames come in three colorways: silver with black, gold with brown, and rose gold with Havana.

Lunor also added a new panto and anatomic shape to their A11 line, a series of young and timeless frames. They come in new colorways that are inspired by Pantone Color Institute’s yearly color trend forecast: Havana Blue, Havana Rose, and Havana green.

 

three variations on a classic Havana color

The Lunor A5 acetate line has over a hundred different color and shape combinations already, making it a line that can work for almost everyone. This season, four more colors are added based on nature: Apricot, Rosé, Blackberry, and Blackforest Green. Made from slightly transparent acetate, these new colors will appear a little bit different on each skin tone.

If you want to see more of Lunor, you can. Simply visit our Lunor showroom and have a look around.

Take a dip in the ocean with Eque.M

Take a dip in the ocean with Eque.M

Japanese designer Eque.M has been designing eyewear for almost twenty years. He made his first steps in the world of eyewear in the early 2000s when he left Japan to go and live in sunny California. He was drawn there by his love for the ocean and surfing.

Water and surf culture have been great sources of inspiration for Eque.M throughout his career as a designer. First, while working for existing Californian eyewear companies. Later, for his own brand Frency & Mercury which he founded in the USA in 2005. Now that he’s based again in his home country Japan and working for the first time under his own name, surfing is still on his mind. His latest collection for FW2021 is inspired by the 1980s surf scene. The colors of the frames and lenses reflect the colors of the sky over the ocean.  The shapes and details  echo the movements of the waves.

 

Japan has a rich history of making eyewear by hand and so of course Eque.M is making use of the knowledge and know-how that is available in his country. Each frame in his collection of optical glasses and sunglasses is made by hand by Japanese craftsmen. The unique design language of Eque.M is enhanced by the intricate detailing and use of high-quality materials, resulting in a collection that you won’t see anywhere else.
