As someone who dons eyewear every single day (thanks to short-sightedness), having suitable eyewear is pretty vital. It shapes how you look daily and even helps accentuate your overall look. Not to mention how stylish the right pair of sunglasses can make you look! But with every season comes change and Luxottica’s new MIDO 2022 Eyewear Collection is all about new things. From Vogue eyewear to Ray-Bans, here are the latest eyewear trends you have to hop on!
1. RB3625 New Aviator by Ray-Ban
Bringing the original Ray-Ban hero into the present, the New Aviator takes the stage. This ray-blocking icon has been restyled with a new slightly angled drop and premium rivet-inspired frame engravings. Three different sizes go from a classic fit to a trendy oversize statement in the blink of an eye. And true to its roots, it’s all about the lenses: updating a selection of bestseller solid and gradient crystal lenses, two brand new mirror gradient Chromance shades offer enhanced colour, clarity, and glare protection for the highest-flying style seekers. Furthermore, classic metal tones like modern black, rose gold, and a Legend gold signature edition complete the eyewear.
2. RB3636 New Caravan by Ray-Ban
Since 1957, this year the original Caravan gets ready to start a new journey in contemporary style. Revamping its unmistakable square metal wire shape with premium Ray-Ban rivet-inspired engravings, state-of-the-art gradient mirror Chromance lenses and bestselling solid or gradient crystal shades, this genderfluid icon is unfalteringly contemporary. Enduring metal colourways – including classic, rose or Legend gold and cool black or silver options, in both a standard and slightly larger size, make it the perfect match.
3. RB3637 New Round by Ray-Ban
The round takes another trip around the sun to leave its mark on a new generation of metal icons. It does this by drawing on the nonconformist spirit of design in the counterculture. Light, yet strong, rivet-inspired engravings, best-selling crystal shades, and the latest gradient mirror Chromance lens technology update classic, rose, and signature Legend gold frames, as well as total black and silver frames, for a high-end take on the total style. And you can make it fit your style because it comes in three sizes, from small and old-school to easy-to-wear with attitude. This is probably one of our favourites from the MIDO Eyewear Collection.
4. Oakley Kato
After the historic release of Oakley Kato, Oakley has added more lens and frame colour combinations to make the already impressive collection of this style even better. The sunglasses will now come in three new combinations. All of them have Prizm Lens Technology, which makes colours and contrasts stand out so you can see more details. Oakley Kato’s radical look is made possible by game-changing advances in optical design, such as PhysioMorphic Geometry, which allows a wrap lens shape and a unique, adjustable lens attachment for a customised, seamless design with a mask-like fit.
5. Sutro Lite Sweep by Oakley
Oakley also comes out with the Sutro Lite Sweep, which combines the popular sweep lens shape made famous by Eyeshade with the popular Sutro frame design. Sutro Lite Sweep is the best choice for durability and comfort all day long while making a bold statement. It has a functional sports design with optimised coverage, an extended field of view, retention, and impact protection. Some colourways have lenses with vents that let more air in and help you stay cool wherever the day takes you.
6. VO4235S by Vogue Eyewear
Original archive styles are brought back to life with a fashion-forward look. Trendy metal contours and fine details raise the bar on 90s style with an irresistible allure. This unusual half-round metal shape is made more interesting by a stepped brow line and crafted colour contrasts that highlight classic lens and metal tones. Its head-turning profile is marked by a wide, embossed bridge and perforated temples.
7. VO4234S by Vogue Eyewear
Updating vintage allure with bold brows and sleek profiles, when metal goes glam this look is a must-have. Perfectly aligned with urban trends, new curved temples and a trendy oversize square shape give this edgy metal construction feminine flair, fine embossing and a polished logo plaque gives it a sophisticated side. Color-up rose and plain gold or silver frames with violet, blue or Bordeaux brows and matching gradient lenses, or keep-it-classic in black or Havana with solid lenses.
8. VO5421 by Vogue Eyewear
This optical look in the MIDO eyewear collection is all about expressive everyday style, from sculptural shapes to bright patterns inspired by Pop Art. The deep squared shape is modern, feminine, and right on-trend. It is made of lightweight nylon fibre for easy-to-wear style, and it comes with a brand-status new 3D coloured logo. You can make a playful statement with dark blue or violet frames, Bordeaux frames, and bright Pop Art-inspired patterns, or you can create the ultimate mix-and-match look with black or Havana frames that are the same colour all the way through.
9. VO4229 by Vogue Eyewear
Making retro-inspired optical design totally trendy, this chic metal butterfly looks to the future with a fashion-focused attitude. Colouring up the minimal design of contemporary elegance, violet or blue rims and temple tips add fresh appeal to classic silver or gold frames. New curved temples with fine linear embossing and a logo plaque underline the design’s sophisticated allure.
