TOM FORD SS22: a glimpse of what’s to come

On September 13th, Tom Ford closed NY Fashion Week with his SS22 show. The King of Glamour showed his view of what’s to come in the world of fashion. And with that, he also gave a very sneak peek of where he might be going next with his eyewear collection…

When you hear ‘Tom Ford’, you know there will be glamour. So, it might come as somewhat of a surprise that his SS22 show was built around sportswear. That’s right. Shorts, racer back tanks and sweatpants. But fear not. Everything in true Tom Ford style, which means lots of sparkle, gold lamé fabric, sequins and satin.

His clothes weren’t the only thing referencing sportswear. Ford send four models down the catwalk wearing sunglasses. Two of them wore a shield-like frame that perfectly fits the sport-meets-street trend we’ve been seeing more and more of. But, just like the clothes, this frame is still more glamour than sports with its shiny gold detail and mirroring shield lens.

The other frame is reminiscing of those frames Neo wears in the Matrix. Small, but again in a shiny version. A gold frame with golden, mirroring glasses.

In the mood for more Tom Ford? We've got a showroom full of Tom Ford frames!

Vintage driving with Brett

Vintage driving with Brett

For their new campaign, Brett introduces us to Neo Heroes: men that drive vintage cars and motorcycles with character that are operated manually. Men that prefer the analog over the digital. Men that wear Brett.

Brett found their new brand ambassador in the person of Julien Chaffard, who is the founder of the world’s first racing school where drivers can go back in time to the sixties and seventies while driving in vintage race cars. This Classic Racing School is situated on the Charade circuit, also known as the Circuit Clermont-Ferrand, where during the late sixties and early seventies four Formula 1 races were held.

Julien perfectly embodies the two types of men Brett eyewear is made for: the tough race car driver who loves mechanics and isn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty, and the elegant gentleman who appreciates the finer things in life. They are opposites, but at the same time belong together.

Supreme X Carrera. The coolest cats out there.

Supreme X Carrera. The coolest cats out there.

It's one of the coolest brands out there: Supreme. Known for its red and white logo and its multiple collaborations with other brands that are as diverse as Skittles, Louis Vuitton, or Hästens. And now, Carrera is added to that famous list as well...

Supreme started out as a skater brand, and it still is. But their collaborations with other brands have attracted so much attention over the years, that you’d almost forget they sell ‘normal’ clothes and accessories as well. These collaborations give the public products they already know, but with a Supreme sauce over it and of course, a Supreme logo on it. To give you an idea, here are some cool examples…

Back to Carrera. This eyewear company has been making eyewear since 1956. It was named after an open road racing event in Mexico in the early 1950s, that was considered to be one of the most dangerous car races in the world. In the 1970s Carrera successfully collaborated with another company that loves car racing as much as they do: Porsche Design. Together, they launched an eyewear collection with some futuristic shield designs that to this day are considered to be iconic.

For the Supreme X Carrera collaboration, they took inspiration from a vintage pair of Carrera goggles. Both companies keep silent about which frame exactly, but we suspect it has to be the Porsche Design Carrera 5600 ski goggles. They do look a lot alike, don’t they?

So, which one do you prefer? The original or the Supreme edition?!

Patrick Dempsey and Porsche Design are back at it

Patrick Dempsey and Porsche Design are back at it

Earlier this year, we wrote about how Porsche Design and Patrick Dempsey are the perfect match. Seeing their new Fall campaign, we can confirm they still are. Dempsey shines in it, wearing two new frames that are available at selected stores as of now...

If the iconic Porsche 911 car is on the top of your list of Most Desirable Cars, then this titanium prescription frame should be on the top of another of your lists: Most Beautiful Frames I’d love to Wear. As part of the Liquid Titanium collection, this lightweight model is inspired by the silhouette of the 911. The P’8387 frame is casual, but classy. Sporty, but chic. Same as with the car basically. Patrick Dempsey looks good wearing it, and we’re pretty sure you will too.

Porsche also introduces a new pair of titanium sunglasses to its collection. These squared aviators have the interchangeable lens system Porsche invented in the late 1970s, but now even more visible than in the original frame with this system. It gives these sunglasses an extra strong and masculine feel, while still being classy and timeless.

For more glasses and sunglasses, as well as selling points, we suggest you visit our Porsche Design showroom.

How to match your glasses with your (new) clothes. The Scotch & Soda edition.

At Scotch & Soda they’re ready for Fall! This Amsterdam-based brand is best known for one thing and that is their use of prints. Their new collection includes some nice, new prints for him and her. And we’ve found some cool glasses and sunglasses to match…

Scotch & Soda has probably never had a collection without print, and this new one for coming Fall is no exception. The men’s collection includes a variation of nice plaids, cool and almost comic-like embroideries, and cloud-like prints. All in a muted color palette of browns, orange, and dark greens. For women, we see lots of florals, often combined with a graphic pattern. Again, in this warm palette of brown, burgundy and dark yellows.

 

Besides clothes, Scotch & Soda also has a wide range of optical frames and sunglasses. So why not update your eyewear together with your wardrobe? To give you some ideas on how to do that, we selected some of Scotch & Soda’s new prints and matched them with the coolest glasses and sunglasses.
