Vintage inspired or sporty and ultra-technical, the sunglasses give an aura of mystery to the female gaze. For spring summer 2019 there are models and colors so beautiful to make these accessories real objects of desire, almost to collect.
Large 70s style, geometric and exaggerated shapes in 80s style. Here are the trendiest vintage effect glasses
That catwalk fashion is often inspired by the past is a well known thing, but regarding the sunglasses vintage lines are even more important because they give a touch of femininity and glamour to the female face. For spring summer 2019, the most fashionable designers find inspiration in the fashion of the Seventies and Eighties. Enormous and thickly framed are the Hippie style models by Salvatore Ferragamo and those with geometric patterns by Fendi, while Giorgio Armani decorates his 70s models with colored rhinestones and Jimmy Choo with glitter. Then there are the beautiful sunglasses with gradient lenses designed for Gucci by the designer Alessandro Michele, who gives a precious and colorful touch to the women’s faces with pastel tones, golden glares and turtle-effect prints. The 80s are the triumph of maximalism and ostentatious luxury. The sunglasses that are inspired by this period almost completely cover the face with mask-like effects and have almost sculptural shapes, as in the case of Byblos, Miu Miu and Marni. Gucci and Mykita create very geometric shapes in glam-rock style and choose black or many crystals to give brightness to the look.
