Once a year New York plays host to the world’s best eyewear designers - a trade fair incorporating eyewear showings that sets the scene for tastemakers globally. ACO was there. The design talent and frames on offer each year are extensive and awesomely impressive. The trends which really stood out for us have been brewing for a while but have now taken hold and look like they will continue now leading the pack for some time.
Here’s a snapshot of what we saw.
Colours are trending towards the matte clear/crystals acetates, white is emerging, tortoise shell is dominant yet again, gold and silver metals are taking hold.
Shapes are trending towards mod and vintage rounds and a reimagining of the classic aviator. Hipster squares remain and oversized looks look like they are here to stay.
Frame details of note were metal layering/combinations, unexpected bridges, natural/earthy materials, subtle sparkly embellishments.
We have new stock arriving all the time. Here’s some of what you can expect to find at ACO on your next visit…
