The All Seeing Eye

Comment, Style & Design News from Mondottica


Wrapping up our spotlight week on colours, we take a look at stand-out red and purple frames.

A vibrant red design we love is Christian Lacroix‘s CL5080. This red showstopper features a playful black and crystal polka dot motif, strikingly contrasting the coral Botanic Rainbow print on the bottom. Similar to a piece of art, the solid acetate tortoiseshell tips complement the bold colours of the collage on the front, while an engraved coin-edge vintage pattern embellishes the ultra-fine gold metal temples.

Cherry red styles REY PJ7382 & LEGACY PJ7381 by Pepe Jeans are perfect for sunny days. Crafted in translucent acetate, both REY and LEGACY play on ’90s jelly-like styles and feature easy-to-wear shapes for everyday styling.

Ted Baker‘s SAMMY TB1614 is a classic style with a twist, a perfect introduction to our selected purple frames. This carefully crafted design features a unique mirrored front with subtle gradient lenses. In addition that, its slim metal temples are embellished with a metal bow showcasing the signature Ted bow on the inside of end tips.

Pepe Jeans’ ELENOR PJ7383 is a soft purple acetate design with a classic panto front and slim temples. Slightly chunkier sister style LEAH PJ7373 is available in a frosted lilac hue. Further to this, LEAH also features a keyhole bridge and temples that thin out to the end tips.
