6 sunglasses that are trendy in 2022

 Between futurism and the impossible move some of the proposals in sunglasses and frames of the designers for autumn-winter 2022

trendy sunglasses

Among all the accessories, sunglasses are that accessory with the greatest capacity to transcend the seasons. They do not adhere to any season and have their permanent place, as happens with bags and shoes, among any collection on the catwalk. With the arrival of summer literally just around the corner, this accessory is the perfect addition to get ahead of the autumn-winter 2022-2023 trends with absolute compatibility with the high temperatures of the festival period. We collect here some of the glasses that are in vogue to be the outstanding student of the class.

Futuristic

Seeing the look that collections such as Dior or Balmain were taking for the fall, it is not surprising that the sunglasses that are going to be worn the most are also projected into the future. If Salvatore Ferragamo starts with mirrored lenses and sports-inspired designs, other firms opt for frames with very straight lines, as is the case with Balmain or Dolce & Gabbana, whose glasses look like something out of a science-fiction movie.

The most extreme version of futuristic glasses can be found in frames that almost look like a screen: XL models in dark colors that cover practically the entire face, as in the case of Roberto Cavalli, Vivienne Westwood or the Courrèges visor design. Dolce & Gabbana also has one of the most impossible proposals of the season thanks to a completely rectangular accessory that seems made to delight Instagram. Compared to them, those of Dior are practically minuscule.

Autumn sunglasses will be black or they won't be

If there is a color that sets the tone among the sunglasses of the season, that is black. It doesn't matter what silhouette we imagine: they can be sports-inspired, like those of Balenciaga. Aviator type, such as Saint Laurent or Gucci (in screen format). Even classics, like the ones proposed by Michael Kors. With the type of frame that we like the most or that suits us best according to the shape of our face, any sunglasses design is suitable for investing in a model that never goes out of style.

Eccentric

One of the maxims in terms of trends in sunglasses this fall 2022 is not to go unnoticed. Moschino is a classic when it comes to betting on extravagant designs, but it is not the only one. Dolce & Gabbana proposes mismatched lens designs, while Louis Vuitton opts for a cat-eye model with a forged frame. For those who prefer the avant-garde, Acne Studios has included several proposals in the form of insect eyes. Armani is another of the firms whose glasses are more curious: a frame that is articulated, in dark colors, around the eyebrows. Another alternative is Off-White, which includes several irregular design options.

Transparent glasses

From the maximum to the minimum expression. The 2022 sunglasses trends move at the opposite extremes, also betting on absolute minimalism. Opposite of impossible mounts, the tonic also goes through an acetate complement that gives absolute prominence to the look. If Fendi opts for nineties inspiration, Givenchy opts for a more futuristic aesthetic, with models that are subtly dyed with colors such as green.

In addition to sunglasses, eyeglasses are also declined for this simplicity: a clean look that is articulated around transparent structures and, if possible, square. It is the bet that we find in Stella McCartney, Phillip Plein and the more discreet version of Off-White. Even Burberry bets on a silhouette in which it even dispenses with glass, staying exclusively with the shape of the frame as one more stylistic gesture.

Colored lenses

It is one of the trends that continues in force for next autumn-winter. If in its day you got some glasses with colored lenses, these months you are going to reuse them, according to firms such as Coach or Gucci. Although the color yellow is unbeatable, it opens up a chromatic range of possibilities that go from the red of Versace's XL glasses to the blue (and transparent) frames of Christian Siriano.

Square

In the trends in sunglasses we can find sharp lines such as cat-eye or more round, such as oval. However, square frames represent another of the interesting proposals that have been seen the most among the autumn winter 2022 collections: a silhouette with dark or gradient lenses that is tinted in light or nude colors, according to Miu Miu, Lanvin or Gucci. If Coach recalls, thanks to its bright colors, the optimism of the 60s, the XL size of the proposals by Giambattista Valli also refers to that decade, but from a more sophisticated and less naive perspective.

Red is the fashion trend color for this autumn/winter 2022/23.




Color passion red, royal red, sensual red. But these are not the only visions and interpretations for this intense color: the Fall-Winter 2022/2023 fashion has re-proposed it in a brilliant key reminiscent of the color of flames, becoming enveloping, even playing the most fetishists thanks to the use of vinyl material. And not only that: it does not skimp on elegance, becoming an element of contrast in the black and white bicolor. But it is not the only option: below you will discover the colors that combine with red.



We are not only talking about this year's Valentino red, but about many shades, from the most intense to the moving orange notes, proposed on the catwalk by different fashion houses. They color from head to toe, attracting attention: it is the persuasive velvet, the soft knit, but also the transparency of tulle and the shine of vinyl materials. Designers have given us many variations on the theme, from all-red looks to more daring color combinations.





Thue Nørgaard's graphic photo shoot, published in Vogue Italia in August 2022, emphasizes the use of red and black, which can be brightened up with a touch of white: the Versace jacket in macro houndstooth overlaps to a scarlet coat, while Moschino's minidress features a triad print. And that's not all: cream and vermilion are the ideal colors to combine with smoke gray for a more refined solution.


Color combinations to try

The polka dots will see the two-tone combination of red and black, a not too unprecedented version that is reinforced with the silk and lace slip dress and the pleat. The retro touch is broken up with pointe shoes or a sand-colored trench coat with a contrasting red trim. But this is not the only decline in fashion.



Red and purple

If you have never dared with this trending color combination, now is the time. In fact, it is one of Yves Saint Laurent's favorite proposals, where boldness is balanced by performance. In this case, amethyst, lavender or iris are the best colors to combine with red.




Red and blue (also denim)

But red can be 'cooled' with sky blue, ice gray and even washed denim. The goal is to create a simple and harmonious color combination that does not compromise on brightness: this is why it is suitable for between seasons or for an informal outfit.

On the other hand, an always valid combination is red combined with brown: they are colors that embrace and come together, thanks to their warm and enveloping base, so they are suitable from autumn to winter. Try them with a peach or dusty pink insert to lighten up the final look.



From pink to sand

Finally, the return of an accessory that can really change the final look: we are talking about red tights. Last year, stylists once again drew attention to this accessory amid milk-colored leathers, vibrant prints, and logo textures (not forgetting classic perforated lace). Now is the time to experiment, perhaps by wearing them over a minidress in pink or sand from Barbiecore.

Calvin Klein autumn 2018

Style and freedom are elements that articulate the wide crucible that Calvin Klein offers through his garments: elegance with a renewed spirit. This is the approaching trend for autumn.




Since its birth half a century ago, Calvin Klein has carried an incomparable flexibility that allows him to reconfigure himself each season, as an emphatic icon of the fashion of his time, marking a singular trend; a risky firm that is characterized by always encompassing the multiplicity and discursive extremes of clothing and fashion, achieving a balance of high personality: class and fun, elegance and freedom, versatile uniqueness.

Faithful to that spirit, Calvin Klein presents this season with a harmonious, colorful and daring look, which in turn retakes the basics of every occasion without losing its genuine sense of solid colors, emphasizing the personality, although harmonizing a sense of loose reinvention , in line with the environment and our day to day.

Aware that the pace of constant changes in the contemporary world demands a versatility that allows freedom and flexibility, Calvin Klein incorporates in all its garments a special care and attention in the current lifestyle, who chooses the multiplicity of activities, environments and purposes in the same day, working for both indoor and outdoor, colorful and reinventing the "must have" of the season.




It is a rich and bold collection in solid colors, which maintains the warmth and emotionalism in its fabrics. Reliability relaxed: the protagonists of the brand this season adds long-sleeved shirts, pants, or merino as a nice material in the foreground.

If we go carefully to the garments of this line, we will find, in the shirts for example, that the patterns and blocks of solid color are protagonists, harmonizing in a unique way with brushed fabrics and light flannels that go with the firm trend. Also, Calvin Klein manages to develop high fabrics with satin look in striking color palettes, with liquid type finishes to give life to the material, making this category something unique in the brand.

In the trousers we find fabrics inclined towards the gabardine, pipings in velvet, light cotton, as well as reversible bottoms that give them novelty and a subtle freshness of season to the category. Meanwhile, the sweaters are 100% driven by the texture, cozy fabrics and solid color again, which make this garment a completely new program for Calvin Klein.




La colección incorpora a su vez el algodón modal, el cual introduce novedad a través de la silueta, la fabricación y el diseño. En suma, Calvin Klein incorpora este otoño una suma enriquecedora con su mezcla de bloques de color, rayas y detalles de textura, que en contraste hacen de esta categoría un básico esencial, reinventando además la forma tradicional de prendas como el blazer, convirtiéndolo en un tipo de trench versátil para toda ocasión.

These will be the masculine trends in sunglasses in winter

Vintage or contemporary? From the new Ray-Ban and Zegna to reinterpretations of the classics.




From the ancient China of the twelfth century sunglasses with flat smoky quartz crystals began to form part of the attire of men and women of the time. Also the inhabitants of the villages of the different Arctic regions of our continent wear glasses to protect themselves from the reflection of the snow since ancient times. Today, sunglasses have become an almost indispensable part of the outfit of any human being in cities of all kinds, either for a simple aesthetic issue or for protection from exposure to God Febo.

With these premises its use has been intensified and to date use them has become a matter of fashion and trend, so in Forbes Life we ​​make the appropriate recommendation so that before the arrival of winter boreal our readers face the cold with great excellence.

If at the beginning of this year the mirrored "Aviators" were the highlight on the catwalks of the world, the brands have decided to radically change leaving behind mirrors giving way to degraded crystals in brown, blue, green and gray, as in the case of Tom Ford , Gucci and the manufacturer of glasses par excellence, Ray-Ban. If you adopt a classic style with subtle touches of audacity, these are the choice and especially if you fondly keep memories of Tom Cruise in the film Top Gun.

For lovers of vintage, there are two options that are indispensable from here for those outfits that preserve the classic as the axis of elegance. We recommend the classic Persol 649, whose irruption in the market dates from the year '57, when the firm "Per il sol" - from there its apocope -, began to manufacture them for the drivers of the trams of Turin that needed lenses to protect the Eyes of wind and dust.


All with Wayfarers

Other fundamentals for lovers of retro are the Ray-Ban Wayfarer, conceived by the North American designer Raymond Stegeman, responsible for dozens of designs for the former Bausch & Lomb, now Luxóttica. To substantiate our preference, we maintain that his excellent personality and design have transformed the Wayfarer into an object of worship, even since the sex symbol of the golden age of Hollywood, Kim Novak, was portrayed on the Riviera, wearing some back in 1954.

Madonna and Audrey Hepburn in Wayfarers and Steve McQueen wearing Persian 629.



While Marilyn Monroe appeared using the model, it was Audrey Hepburn who took him to stardom in his film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" in 1961, based on the eponymous book by Truman Capote. However, they are our eternal favorites, first for their miraculous fit and then for their popularity in the world of music and film, as they have seen artists like Michael Jackson, Debbie Harry -the singer of Blondie-, Madonna , the Depeche Mode, Elvis Costello, plus members of U2 and Queen, actor Jack Nicholson and many others.

Although the latest Ray-Ban collection exhibits a Clubmasters design (typical of Malcolm X) in wood and Ermenegildo Zegna offers a Couture of the same material as an innovative trend 2018, our `must' proposes a larger format and extremely elegant with striking prints and even camouflaged as is the case of the remastered classics Cazal 163 and 623 that propose a lens eye of up to 59 mm, placing the German brand of designer Cari Zalloni, in the category 'oversized'.

The incredible Cazal 163
The Clubmaster in wood


High-end sports

We arrived at the time of the extra-large and our highlights are two, one current: Porsche P8478 -derived from the Carrera Design 5621- and another vintage, super luxury, such as the Alpina M1 -difficult to find since they have been discontinued , except in www.vintage-sunglasses-shop.com, to 599 Euros-. The P8478, are a kind of XL aviators of interchangeable crystals made of titanium, which promise a long life. They come available in four sizes, counting the largest ones with a 69 mm eye that make them distinguished and full coverage for the visual radio.



The versatile and impressive Porsche Design P8478

In the vintage field, a close case is the Alpina M1, denominated by many as the "perfect lens". Handmade in the former German Federal Republic, they gained popularity with icons such as Stevie Wonder and Rick Ross. The M1 were the best sellers of the 80s and have an aluminum design, although some models are in 24 carat gold. Collectors report the existence of numerous combinations ranging from black aluminum with black details, silver on silver, gold and aluminum in pink (!!!), among many others.

And the last chosen ones are two, one with a high-tech spirit such as the acetate and metal double saddles presented by Dior in its most recent collection - call them DiorFraction1 or DiorPressure in 925 silver - and the other, always valid for the more bohemian public, are the circulars made famous by John Lennon, re-versioned by Cazal in his brand new 002, acetate and metal with gold bath 24 carats.

The imposing DiorPressure in 925 silver

Disruptive in essence, here are the Cazal 002

The recommendations are made, whether you are trendy spirit, adventurous or just a lover or collector of optical parts, our list has what the good luxury consumer appreciates: exquisite manufacturing, disruptive designs and, above all, a deep sense of elegance.
