Eyespace has released a number of new ophthalmic frames in its Rock Star collection for children.

The new frames are designed to celebrate the wearer’s individual style and include three new combination models.

Pattern, colour and texture lead the way in the new launches, with the help of HD printing and modern material interpretations, according to Eyespace.

New season highlights include the frame ‘Zara,’ which blends a retro-influenced rounded metal eye shape with a bold brow line. Available in size 48-17-130, the model has been designed to be full of personality.

‘C1’ has a rich purple front and HD-printed TR90 sides, which feature a unicorn print on the inside. A Rock Star colour splash is offered through pale blue tips, featuring contrasting pink colour-pop detailing at the ends. Style ‘C2’ features a doughnut print design.

Colour is expected to continue to dominate eyewear trends in 2017 and children’s style cannot be overlooked, Eyespace is highlighting.

Taking influence from Pantone’s colour of the year, ‘Greenery,’ the new frame ‘Lisa’ (pictured below) showcases the influence of tone in creating individual style.

Eyespace believes that the blend of green hues and a floral print is the perfect choice for young fashionistas with an appetite for statement accessories.

Frame C2 has a wearable green metal front combined with a deep, rounded 49 eye. High gloss acetate sides finish the look with striking mint-dipped tips.

Modernising heritage eyewear, classic tortoiseshell has been reworked for 2017 using matt materials to retain Rock Star’s Americana theme.

In size 49-16-132, ‘Bobby’ in C2 combines a tortoiseshell front, formed from modern matt acetate, with brushed metal sides.

Embossed dual Rock Star logos add textural interest. The more understated ‘C1’ unites tones of black and blue.

Explaining the ethos behind the new launches, Eyespace marketing manager, Nicky Clement, said: “Through social media and the flood of selfies shared every day, the Alpha generation has an awareness of their appearance unlike any before them, so it’s only natural that kids want eyewear that is a reflection of themselves and that will incite playground envy.”

She added: “When developing children’s eyewear, we make it our mission to enable young patients to confidently tap into their personality and embrace trend-led design, splashes of vibrant colour and styling that interprets and mirrors current High Street fashion.

“From ubiquitous icons to the latest must-have app, our design team keep their fingers firmly on the pulse regarding the crazes kids are claiming as their own. They then carefully interpret this inspiration within the Rock Star range, so that the models we introduce will be innovative, age-appropriate and as fashion forward as the frames older siblings and parents are wearing.”
