The All Seeing Eye

Comment, Style & Design News from Mondottica


To bring you the ultimate inspiration for your summer looks, over the next two weeks we’ll take a look at the highlights of our recent Influencer Marketing campaign in partnership with BrandChests.

Kickin’ us off are featured frames by United Colors of Benetton.

See, for example, the soft oval shape of BE5017, pictured above on beauty @hannahrosegeorge. Reviving a popular retro shape, it exudes a playful glamour seen in the golden age of Hollywood. It is available in key primary colours Cherry Red and Cobalt Blue, as well as Creamy White and crafted from acetate with high gloss for an added dose of chic. Signing off the style is the brand’s rainbow logo straight out of the archive running along its outer temples.

Another style showcasing an exaggerated oval silhouette is BE5006, as seen on the lovely @whymarj. Here the colour palette ranges from Chalk White to Tortoiseshell with gold mirrored lenses to black with tonal smoky lenses for maximum glamour. Inspired by popular styles from the ’90s, this frame is quirky and fun, as well as super feminine.

Slightly oversized and surprisingly lightweight, BE5011 is a classic squared-off frame, a great option for summer walks to beach days! See it on @jasmineshumx who pairs the model with a casual summer tee.

In search of a cool retro frame? Look no further than BE7009, styled by @alfiechapman_. It features a round matt front, paired with matching end tips that showcase the iconic Benetton colour pop stitch logo, contrasting with its shiny metal temples.
