COLORS: Earthy tones of burnt oranges, coffee browns, and forest greens combine with “coastal” colors–sandy beiges, sky blues, and sunny yellows.

SHAPES: Influenced by both global cultures and the retro era, popular silhouettes range from chunky rounds, to demure cat-eyes, larger squared-off aviators, big-time squares, and studious rounds.

DETAILS: Elements are taken literally, as seen in flora and fauna prints and appliques, animalistic patterns, woodsy textures, and leather materials. They are complemented by ombre effects reminiscent of watercolor, scalloped edging, and colored lenses in hues inspired by the outdoors


COLORS: Vibrant colors shine in neon blues, greens, yellows, reds, and oranges with dashes and flashes of jet blacks, crisp whites, metallics, and softer shades pink, purple, and creamsicle hues balance it out.

SHAPES: Standout silhouettes–geometrics, exaggerated cat-eyes, and big rounds–plus athletic looks with contemporary touches, including funky shields, reimagined aviators, and chic wraparounds.

DETAILS: Tinted and flash lenses in a range of colors, plus translucent frames, layered materials, cut-outs, gemstone embellishments, bold brow-bars, and flat lenses. Add to that a broad range of patterns, including polka dogs and rainbows.


COLORS: Understated but edgy, the palette includes basic blacks, grays, whites, nudes, silvers, and golds, with statement colors of bright yellows, reds, blues, and greens.

SHAPES: It’s all about precision and previously unseen looks in half-rounds, triangles, and bucket-like cat-eyes mixed with rounds, streamlined cat-eyes, oversized shields, plus clean squares and rectangles.
