The All Seeing Eye

Comment, Style & Design News from Mondottica


With the sun shining, what better way to embrace the warmer days ahead than with our SUN21 sunnies?! This week we have a spotlight on key colours across our brands.

With ocean blue in mind, take a look at styles PIPER PJ5182 and WILLOW PJ5181 from Pepe Jeans. These metal styles are both stylish with colourful lenses as well as super lightweight, making them an easy practical everyday choice. Add a geometric retro twist to your looks with the rectangular front PIPER or hexagon-shaped WILLOW.

Continuing the blue theme, is United Colors of Benetton’s BE5021 for him. A colourful spin on a classic aviator shape, its sea-blue glossy crystal front juxtaposes the solid matte temples. Perfect for fans of logomania, the style features the logo in capital letters all along the temples in hues that match the front.

From freshly cut grass to spring plants, what’s not to love about the colour green? See, for example, United Colors of Benetton’s BE5027 available in a camouflage print. Capturing hues of army green, this mask-like style takes inspiration from the patterns seen on Benetton’s latest catwalk show. In addition to this feature, the signature stitch logo sits on the inside of the temples for some subtle yet very distinctive detailing.

Another stand-out frame showcasing shades of green is Christian Lacroix‘s CL5086. It features the floral Pre╠éte-moi ta plume pattern on the textured front, from the Maison scarf and jewellery collections. A crystal coloured layer which creates a frame-in-frame effect further embellishes the style. A botanical-inspired pattern is encased in a metal plaque in the upper part of the temples and paired with elegant wide-to-thin metal temples.
