Our top picks for summer 2024

With Summer in sight, and with it, that welcome burst of energy and positivity as the world of colour slowly comes to life. For many of us, a new season is a time that we consider making changes to our wardrobe or home decor.

New accessories are the ideal route towards a refreshed look, and your eyewear can play a big part in that! So now is the perfect time to find out how you can use the power of colour to punctuate your eyewear wardrobe with our top picks of the season.

Silhouette Purist with Colour Groove

Renowned for their delicate and lightweight eyewear, Silhouette are true world leaders when it comes to comfort and quality. Not only are they effortlessly stylish, but the frames are crafted from titanium, meaning they barely weigh a thing but are incredibly durable.

We would not typically associate rimless eyewear with colour, but Silhouette’s Purist collection with Colour Groove effortlessly marries subtlety and flair, adding a pop of personalisation without dominating the whole effect. The ultra-light glasses in the Purist collection are inspired by the world of optical illusions and light art installations, changing their look depending on the angle from which they are viewed.

They combine linear angles and softer design in a dazzling array of shapes and colours to create a look as unique as you are.

Prodesign GRANDD 1 in 9534

Inspired by the minimalism and functionality of Danish architecture, ProDesign Denmark has been a favourite with our customers for many years now, and it is no surprise why! ProDesign Denmark have been masters of design for 50 years, creating striking eyewear that has been designed for wearability without compromise.

Nothing encapsulates this more so than ProDesign’s Essential collection, of which GRANDD is a particularly striking piece. This masculine frame is a bold and solid piece of eyewear that uses thick rims and high temples to bring any one of five different impactful colourways to life. For people who are more comfortable in a larger frame, this is a fantastic acetate option to try this season.

Götti RAIA in Ruby

Götti Switzerland have been creating innovative, high quality eyewear since 1998. Their minimalist frames, designed in Switzerland, exude style and confidence while making use of modern and sustainable manufacturing techniques.

One of the most innovative Götti lines is the Dimension collection: designed and produced entirely by Götti in their Swiss workshop as a 3D-printed product, the process takes at least four days per frame. RAIA is a fantastic example of the light, resilient frames that this sustainable method of small batch production can shape. They boast a beautiful matte finish, and when a touch of specially created dye is added, come to life in a range of stunning colours.

Blackfin Brookwood in Blue/Dark Blue

Blackfin combines the incredible lightness and strength of titanium with state-of-the-art technology and the skilful flair of their talented designers to create beautiful, unique glasses that are true minimalist works of art.

Blackfin Brookwood is cut from a single titanium block, creating a perfectly formed, ultralight and hypoallergenic optical frame. Designed and made entirely in the Italian Dolomites – the home of eyewear – Brookwood boasts ultraflexible 0.5mm titanium temples, which can also be shortened thanks to Blackfin’s innovative design, to give perfect wearability.

Each piece is laser engraved with its own unique markings and serial number, and is given its vibrant colouring by hand to give that extra special touch of personality to the frame.

Etnia Barcelona ULTRA LIGHT 12

We always look to Spanish brand Etnia Barcelona when our customers desire a colourful look, and their UTF collection is something truly out-of-this-world. Inspired by classic sci-fi films of the late 60s, the result is a Kubrick-esque palette cleverly worked into classic shapes.

But what sets Etnia Barcelona's UTF collection apart is the depth of colour achieved in an ultra-light acetate frame. Ultra Light 12 is a particular favourite of ours. Available in four different colourways, it layers tinted crystal acetate with bold, impactful colour on the front, adding amazing depth to the frame. This is enhanced by the exquisite details on the arms and temple tips to give a comfortable yet statement-making look.

Face A Face CARAR 2 in 3649

Parisian brand Face A Face is widely recognised for its daring, audacious yet flattering designs. Their exquisite pieces draw inspiration from the world of art, architecture and contemporary design, creating quirky, colourful frames that exude personality and style.

Face A Face CARAR 2 is a masculine frame available in a selection of colourways, but our current favourite is this bright and bold green that uses highlights of red as a sharp accent to its edges. CARAR is crafted from natural acetate for an elegant yet tough high quality finish, with a generous depth to fit a range of lenses and enable the wearer to truly make a statement with their eyewear.
