All frames bold and beautiful

From chunky frames that hark back to the noughties, to eyewear with a striking marbled finish, autumn/winter fashions have a lot to draw from

Chunky eyewear is big this season. Thick frames complement autumn/winter textures beautifully and bring balance to the heavier fabrics we associate with the season. Bold and beautiful. We couldn’t love these in-your-face styles more.

Loving leather

Starting life in 1941 as a family-run workshop in New York City, Coach has become a pioneer in the leather goods and accessories space. The signature horse and carriage logo has inspired the latest eyewear collection, including frame ‘HC6132.’

Marbled effect

The cooler season indicates a shift in mood from bright summer colours. The ‘Icy 179’ by Louis Stone in mint dream is a beautiful and practical frame with a strong mint green hue, giving a marble effect through the black frame which is particularly striking on the inner sides. This is the perfect chunky frame to complement black or green clothing and accessories.

Polished in blue

Noticing an emerging trend for thicker frames and striking colours, Tom Davies’ latest collection is a nod to 2009. Combining the finest workmanship and fit, the ‘TD 510’ acetate frames incorporate a contemporary shape, giving them a fun and charming character. One of the collection's bestselling frames has been finished in a chic polished blue colour.
