Ready for Plucking: Preen Sunwear For Fall 2014

The Optical Journal - Optical News With Independent Views

Preen designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi introduced their Women’s Wear brand to London in the mid-nineties.  Now, nearly two decades later, shrewd fashion seekers can indulge in this luxury brand worldwide.  If that isn’t satisfying enough for the trend thirsty fashionista’s of this avant-garde Brit Brand, now they can further adorn themselves with the new collection of Sunwear debuting in 2014.

Nothing says Springtime like flowers and these frame designs from Preen Eyewear having me praying for April Showers.  I love the three dimensional floral arrangement on these luxurious frames.  It’s amazing how the same frame looks so different in the Ivory color compared to the Matte black.  This is a godsend for any girl who wears her emotions on her sleeve (and her wallet on her face).  The Ivory frames with the lighter gradient lens are so approachable, beckoning “Look at me, I am an ethereal angel.  Come talk to me about my impeccable style”.  The same pair in Matte Black and gray lens warn, “I am too [CHIC] for school, so don’t talk to me unless it’s about my impeccable style”.  A round of applause for these mood setting shades by Preen!



I have coined a new term to describe a these premium sunnies from Preen and that is Avant-GARDEN.  These frames are everything the world of eyewear needs! They take a classic cat-eye, throw in some semi rimless, mix that with a wayfarer, sprinkle in a dash of delicate golden flower detail, and give you the choice of the Hot Pink or Shiny Black.  Are your eyes watering yet??


There is nothing that says GLAMOUR more than an oversized pair of black sunnies.  The geniuses at Preen have gifted us with a garden-fresh spin on an everlasting style in eyewear with these two styles below.  The floral print featuring red, coral, yellow, white, and green provides a POP of color to these already stylish black plastic frames.  These are a must for all year wear!
