Lorraine and Leah recently returned from the annual Vision Expo in Las Vegas! They brought back a wealth of knowledge on the latest industry technologies and fashion trends (but everything else stays in Vegas).

By gaining insight into upcoming fashions we can stay ahead of the game and offer patients frames that will be in vogue for a long time to come. The trade show exhibited the new shapes and colours that are currently taking Paris runways by storm. The trend for the past few years has been modern interpretations of retro styles. This trend continues with clubmaster and aviator inspired designs for men and women. Woman can expect to see cat-eyes, funky squares and streamlined ovals. Men will have their choice of sporty squares, flat-topped rectangles and dapper rounds.

While the true vintage look will typically be finished in silver, gold, black, faux-horn or tortoise shell, the modern versions are sporting feminine corals, bright white, neon yellow, matte black, metallic taupe, elegant emerald, mauve grey and baby blue.

Frames have taken a turn to the sleek and minimal as of late, but the coming year will show some unique accent pieces. We’ll be seeing some two-tone colours, pops of neon pigment, modernized aviator bridges, colourful button embellishments, binocular inspired accents, white temples and futuristic piping.

We select each frame in our office to suit our demographic, that’s you! So you may not see all of these new frame styles on our board, but if we think a frame would look great on you, we’ll have it ready and waiting!
