What's New in Eyeglass Frames
Gwen Stefani Debuts Eyewear Lines
January 2016 Two new frame and sunglass collections by Gwen Stefani have launched, and they are just as fashion-forward as you'd expect from this style icon.
Please click here for close-up photos of this and other styles in the L.A.M.B. and gx by Gwen Stefani collections.
The collections are called L.A.M.B. and gx by Gwen Stefani, which are Stefani's fashion accessory labels featuring shoes and handbags.
L.A.M.B. emphasizes black and white hues but also stripes, prints and color blocking. Pearl and metallic acetates are used extensively, and the look is street-style edgy.
The gx by Gwen Stefani collection is more geek chic, with pop color accents and small stud or plaque details. Stefani describes the line as "bold, colorful and more playful."
Both collections are in chunky acetate, and while they are feminine, they are not for wallflowers. We can't wait to try them on!
Celebrity Stylist Kate Young Launches Eyewear Collection
May 2015 Who knows what looks best on women? Celebrity stylist Kate Young certainly comes to mind, as she has worked with some of the most beautiful women on stage and screen, including Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, Sienna Miller and Dakota Johnson.
Young's know-how is now being put to good use in frame and sunglass designs for women, in her new Kate Young for Tura collection.
The styles are modern retro, much like some of the looks she has created for her clients. The vintage details include strong cat-eye shapes, chunky structure, keyhole bridges, gold tones and jewelry accents. Colors are face-flattering, including black, rose, gray, crystal, bone, khaki and tortoise.
