Charmant UK has previewed the influences on its new ‘Elle’ ophthalmic frames for women and key design details of the collection.

Subtle pattern textures have been added by the dynamic Parisian brand to its frames materials to help add depth to the designs for 2017, Charmant UK has revealed.

In the new ‘Elle’ ophthalmic frames, bold plain fronts are being offset by more decorated sides with jewellery-inspired metal twists.

Key influences for the new season are the retro-inspired styles still having a large influence on both the fashion world, as well as eyewear.

In the ‘Elle’ collection, metal spectacles styles are seeing a resurgence in more rounded eye shapes reminiscent of the 1980s. Very fine frames, as well as plastics and acetates, are featuring larger eye shapes in preppy styles.

Charmant UK general manager, Louise Brunton, told OT: “2017 is very much about brighter and more vibrant colours, both in metals and acetates.

“Side and temple decorations are becoming more flamboyant and there is definitely a hint of the 1950s in the women’s frames,” she said.
