Elegant and chic; romantic and mysterious; classic and cool, or exotic and exaggerated; sunglasses manifest many roles. They are dynamic and impressive – whether contemporary, vintage, sporty, or glamorous. The allure and appeal of sunspecs symbolizes virtues of personal style, safety, and charisma. Classic silhouettes; voluminous or minuscule shapes; brilliant hues or traditional tones; acetate and metal or other exceptional materials – highlight international collections for 2021.
The globalization of eyewear is one of the numerous reasons that frames have indeed, become fashion essentials. Designers with fascinating and intriguing backgrounds are inspired by the many opportunities possible to create inventive frames.
Choices abound in the latest sun wear collections. Streamlined, elegant, and superbly refined, Arctic and Equator are among the beautiful sun designs created by Birgitte Falvin at Falvin Eyewear. Inspired by the uncluttered, minimalistic designs that reflect her Scandinavian heritage, craftsmanship and luxurious materials, graceful colorations and shapely silhouettes are intrinsic in the frames. In February, Falvin Eyewear will introduce their exclusive eyewear collection and custom-made diamond frames in Tokyo’s legendary department store – Mitsukoshi Nihombashi.
Sol Sol Ito’s dashing supersized sunglasses were highlighted in the Mode Swiss fashion presentation, worn by Swiss model Tamy Glauser. The award-winning designers – Monika Fink and Sandra Kaufmann – capture individuality and innovation in their frames, which are imbued with traditional Swiss values of precision, fine craftsmanship, and timelessness.
Andy is among the contemporary, sleek shapes in the Salt Optics collection. For men who like fashion, but prefer to be subtle, Andy combines classic lines with trendy detailing on the frame front and sides. Black, Smoke Grey, Whiskey, Indigo Blue, and Toasted Toffee are among the remarkable color choices.
For sunspecs with a dash of drama, Chill by Face à Face Paris ticks all the boxes. Wearers can unveil their inner style savvy with this design that combines both slim and voluptuous aesthetics. A streak of coral on the frame front, plus the delicate enveloping effects, creates a pleasing optical illusion.

Accent Shades 8179 is available in four desirable colorations, plus warm gold or black lenses, both paired with a matte ink frame.
