This year glasses have been very popular in fashion. People, more than ever, were wearing glasses even if they didn’t need them. So it’s a smart move of designer sisters Truus and Riet Spijkers to come up with a collection of glasses this month.

On Tuesday eve they celebrated the launch of their first collection of glasses in Amsterdam. They collaborated with Specsavers to come up with 24 frames and 10 pairs of sunglasses.

Like their clothes the glasses are absolute statement pieces, each with it’s individual style and shape. And they sure looked good. Congrats on this collection Spijkers en Spijkers!

Trends ss2010: sunglasses

When it comes to sunglasses every possible shape, size and color was presented on the runway.

We saw a crazy pair at the Ungaro fashion show which had diamonds all over the glasses. At Alexander Wang they were very pointy. At Hussein Chalayan they were pentagonal. In the Moschino show a few pairs had the shape of a flower.

Karl Lagerfeld put guitars on the side of his glasses. At Jenden they had all kinds of sparkling colorful rocks on the frame. And Louis Vuitton made them look like diving-glasses.
If there was a trend to be recognized among all those sunglasses it might be the one of the small circular Beatle glasses. They were there at the fashion shows of Erdem, Carolina Herrera, House of Holland, Iceberg and Schwab.

Another variant that stood out were the sunglasses with the pointy Fifties-inspired sides, which give someone the angry schoolteacher’s look. Jenny Packham, Rochas, Sonia Rykiel, Alexander Wang and Giles had them in their fashion show.

So, no specific look stood out for SS2010. Yet it might be time for the Beatle-glasses to return.
