When it comes to Acne, all that glitters is most definitely gold.
Holy crap just look at these glorious things. I know I would look ludicrous ( like a chubby female version of Erik Estrada in CHIPS) in these but I actually gasped when I opened the look book.
For 2016 Acne Studios is introducing new eyewear including brand new styles and updates on the classic pieces. Two new styles, Indy and Charge, play with the classic teardrop shaped lens. Indy has an acetate frame in either black or turtle that thickens at the sides and over the bridge. Charge has a thinner acetate frame that follows the line of the lens, and comes in contrasting combinations of frame and lens - such as a pink frame with grey lenses, or light beige with green. Both styles have defining metal rivets to attach the stems to the frame.
The bookish style Frame, the original eyewear design from Acne Studios, is one of the key designs. Frame, together with Library, gets an update with new metal rectangular tabs in the corners of the acetate - a new signature of Acne Studios eyewear. Other core styles in the collection include the oval shaped acetate Mustang, which comes in a new orange shade, while metal frames include the Spitfire aviator, the circular lensed Winston and the futuristic Mask.
Prices start at £230 which is a bit ouch and will be available exclusively in Acne Studios stores worldwide and online from tomorrow .
We've said it before but Queen Michelle and I so need to win the lottery. There are sunglasses at stake...
