Sunglasses trends straight from Fashion Week.
New York, London, and Milan have already hosted their bi-annual fashion weeks. There’s only Paris left, and we’ve already noticed some trends. Let’s start with Roberto Cavalli, who showed a very delicate, ’20s inspired collection, quite unusual for the house’s opulent style. The sunglasses, however, we’re modern as can be: mirror aviators, with details at the temples that made for a steampunk look.

Moschino had a very diverse presentation, with models of all ages, some more famous than others. The whole collection was a mix of trends, and we liked seeing the ’50s inspired cat eye glasses. Both sunglasses and eyeglasses were shaped like this, the former having embellishments all around, and the latter being more simple.
Anna Sui decided on a futuristic look, with an exaggerated cat eye shape with strong details at the sides and nose bridge. The sunglasses complemented the boho-chic collection, and they remind us of Uma Thurman‘s role as Poison Ivy.
The impressive Burberry Prorsum collection was based on pretty pastels and lace. The sunglasses, however, were a bit rough: white, oval-shaped, wide and short. They did look great on the perfect bone structure of models, but we can’t help but wonder how they’d translate in real life.

The DKNY collection came with lots of denim and monochrome looks. The sunglasses, also monochrome, were simple and classic: trendy, without being too obvious.

Fendi put on a great show, based on gradient colors. The sunglasses, however, are metallic and round, with sharp crystals at the sides that turn the shape into a cat eye. That’s definitely something new, and something that will catch one with fashionistas.

At Gucci, the whole collection was colored in rich, jewel tones, sunglasses included. The style on the runway is oversized and angular, with a dark upper rim and lighter sides. The purple lenses have an interesting effect – and we kind of missed them in sunglasses!

Marc by Marc Jacobs caught our eye (pun intended) with a pair of warm colored rimless sunglasses. They’re butterfly shaped, with just a few visible screws, and they make a great contrast with the tern color of the trench coat they’re shown with.

Ralph Lauren mixed up their usual preppy style with quite unusual sunglasses: oversized, black, shield-shaped and completely unwearable. Perhaps during ski season?

Marc Jacobs accessorized his spring collection with a classic: round, keyhole sunglasses in burgundy. Honestly, it’s refreshing to see something so simple and wearable on the runway, every once in a while.
