Life of Jessica Alba is blooming. The filming of Dear Eleanor starring Jessica has just been finished. And in three months (September 13) we are going to see Jessica Alba in Machete Kills. And in the meantime the paparazzi spot her on the streets of Los Angeles flaunting impeccable outfits.
Jessica Alba can often be found in the lists of “the best dressed”. And that’s hardly surprising because even during her casual strolls and while driving around to complete some routine tasks Jessica Alba puts on the most stylish garments and accessories.
Like on June 1 Jessica Alba was spotted wearing elegant Prada sunglasses while running errands with her little daughter Haven. Both mother and daughter were dressed in ice-cream-toned garments.
Jessica’s light sleeveless blouse and cropped jeans were perfectly accessorized with the shades from Prada fall / winter 2012-2013 collection. The multilayered acetate makes these pink shades a real work of art. The temples of Jessica Alba’s Prada sunglasses borrow their shape from signature triangular plaque on Prada bags.
The oversized Prada sunglasses perfectly suit Jessica Alba. In fact, having a perfect oval face shape, she wears a variety of sunglasses designs – aviators, wayfarers, shield shades, bow-tie sunglasses – everything works on such an immaculate face form – she is just so lucky! Thanks to Jessica Alba beaty she is a nice model to flaunt branded eyewear.
You can totally steal Jessica Alba look by buying these amazing Prada sunglasses. This is the last year’s collection so you can actually catch a bargain!
The highlight item of spring / summer eyewear collection is perhaps the angular shades featured in the campaign. By the way Lanvin spring / summer 2013 video is very specific. No sooner have you pressed play, when you see Lanvin creative director – Alber Elbaz as if calling you via Skype. You hear him commenting everything that is going on in the video – that’s really an original solution for a fashion campaign. And the casual manner in which Alber Elbaz shares his insights really makes you believe that he has really joined you with Skype to help you get the idea behind the campaign. Apparently the creative director of Lanvin is perfectly satisfied with the chic Californian atmosphere created in the video.
Now – back to Lanvin men’s shades. The angular acetate sunglasses may look a little bit too massive on Lanvin male models with their thin faces and heavy bangs – but on men with less model looks it will sure look impressive. Thick acetate frame comes in three color variations – black, khaki and blue.
Lanvin men’s eyewear collection for this summer includes aviators in different guises – the shield design, and a couple of aviator designs with a double bridge. The metal design LM46ASLN002 features intricately designed temples with shiny edges and massive hinges.
And as far as the women’s campaign is concerned we should draw your attention to the luxurious Lanvin eyewear piece LW47ASLN557S – the rims of the lenses and the temples are embellished with sparkly copper gold.Just pair them with a red lipstick like Montana Cox did for the campaign photo and it would be really hard for everybody you meet to take their eyes of you. These Lanvin sunglasses are also available in ivory. There is something really worthy in Lanvin spring / summer eyewear collection to add to your wish-list (or shopping list). And don’t forget to watch the campaign video!

The eclectic 90s style is the highlight of the collection. Marc Jacobs has designed dozens of great resort garments for men this year. So be attentive when watching the behind-the-scenes video and once the collection is available you’ll know what you want to buy.
We would like to draw your attention to the sunglasses featured in the photo shoot. These are semi-rimless Marc by Marc Jacobs men’s sunglasses with oversized rounded lenses. And the colors will just blow your mind – yellow and red lenses do make the shades special. And it’s not that the rest of the collection is plain – colors and patterns are everywhere. Apparently Marc Jacobs suggests being dressed boldly and brightly in 2014.
The sunglasses look particularly bold when paired with heavy bangs, just like the ones the model Marc Sebastian Faiella wears during the photo shoot. Or! You can borrow some ideas from the looks of the rock starts of the past. This kind of design was popular among them. By the way, theses shades have a touch of hippie style. So if you like bohemian garments – be sure to check optical stores for Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses in 2014.
Have you ever heard of Police eyewear? You should have – they are in fact a really interesting company. As the name implies they are eligible for the members of the police to wear – that means impeccable design and no frills – just reasonable detailing. Mirrored aviators are their iconic model.
Still this season Police designers (as they themselves put it) have went color crazy – their classy double-bridge aviators now feature absolutely unexpected colors – technicolors according to the Police Eyewear language. They are mirrored sunglasses by the way. And although this design is all the go, not all brands seem to have embraced the trend. There is a more or less traditional sandy hue. But in addition to that there are an orange and green variations.
More than that, if the double-bridge aviators don’t look flattering on you – there is a rectangular design with a black plastic frame featuring the same colors.
This is actually not the whole range of sunglasses Police offers its fans this season. We are going to reveal the rest of the selection later – so for now take your time to enjoy these colorful shades. Police has in fact coined a special term for them – unusual suspects.
Looks like Police brand is showing its true colors. Although we always expected something like that from that – they really are creative – they always have the coolest campaign photos – they look a lot like film posters.Truly unique brand.
The French fashion house has designed truly elegant eyewear collection embodying chic femininity. But we can’t describe Nina Ricci eyewear without saying a few words about spring / summer dresses and the rest of the campaign.
The campaign video was created by Inez van lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Arizona Muse totally delivered the spirit of this ultra-feminine collection. In the video she is running with rose discs are floating around. And it turns out she is running towards a huge metal fan – that’s a really unusual situation when the massive fan is perceived more as an art object. The fan raises the flows of flower petals into the air. The video is created so skillfully that you can actually feel the breath of wind and smell the gentle sent of roses.
The campaign contains a large portion of pink – pink pumps, pink lipstick, pink roses and a pink sunglasses frame. The glasses are not featured in the video. Instead there are atmospheric campaign photos of Nina Ricci eyeglasses and sunglasses with pink floating disks on the background.
Apart from the Nina Ricci eyeglasses featured in the campaign, the brand designers have created a few more items. Check NR2717 for example. Two-tone frame is formed by metal and acetate. And the unusually designed end pieces resemble Nina Ricci iconic beaux art ring (see photo). The same detailing decorates Nina Ricci oval sunglasses which come in a variety of colors.

The models Tilda Lindstam and Caroline Brash flaunt a new Chloe eyewear design Agathéa that employs acetate and metal to make use of the best features of both materials. The oversized rectangular shades have a transparent frame and are meant to complete Chloe spring summer dresses that feature the most gentle ice-cream colors, ruffles and lacy fabrics. The cream-colored graded lenses of these Chloe sunglasses add a mystery to the eyes. So unmistakably French.
The photograper Glen Luchford tried to recreate a laid-back summery atmosphere. And thanks to a cosy interior and loose hairstyle the photos really radiate lightness and relaxation. That makes the sunglasses look even more appealing.
By the way the brand is celebrating its 6oth anniversary this year. And if you look at the other photos, you’ll notice cushions with a signature Chloe Eventail motif that serves as a tribute to the brand’s rich history. And there is a lot of iconic Chloe sunglasses to look back on. Check the legendary Erine design, for example – the rounded shades decorated with metallic scallops. Consider an ivory color variation for summer.
Tory Burch fall collection presentation was quite a show. The luxurious ballroom of the Pierre Hotel decorated with numerous chandeliers provided a perfect setting for the attention-grabbing looks. The main idea behind the collection is Art Nouveau legacy. Flavored with insect theme it turned into a nice collection of clothes and accessories that a woman can wear the whole day from morning to evening. Three pairs of Tory Burch fall sunglasses form a line of eyewear accessories suitable for different occasions.
The item with a nude frame is perfect for light street-style outfits, the one with saturated-blue temples can form a striking look that is elegant and fashion-forward at the same time. And the purple Tory Burch sunglasses are surely designed for dressy events.
The color palette was borrowed from Gustav Klimt’s canvases. Warm hues of yellow, blue and burgundy just radiate Tory Burch’s unique vision of fashion. And now try to imagine all this diluted with insect-inspired detailing. The clothing was decorated with beetle and scarab prints. Tory Burch also mentioned the creations of Art Nouveau jeweller René Lalique as a source of inspiration – and you can see his influence in the catchy bags and jewelry.
The spirit of Tory Burch fall 2013 collection is reflected in every detail. Even the sunglasses capture the essence of insect theme. The flared edges resemble dragonfly wings and the iridescent embellishments on the frames look like the play of light on the carapace of some bug.
Tory Burch winter sunglasses feature a very distinct cat-eye shape. Well, not all cats can boast such curvy eyes. These sunglasses seem to resemble the eyes of insects rather than the eyes of cats – sort of bug-eye sunglasses. These are definitely designed for ultimate fashionistas who like to stand out of the crowd.
The brands that don’t deal exclusively with eyewear, often draw the inspiration for new designs from their other creations. Remember how new Alexander McQueen sunglasses resemble the iconic heroine handbag? Jimmy Choo followed similar path and introduced sunglasses inspired by new Jimmy Choo perfume Flash.
The idea behind the newest Jimmy Choo perfume is really original. It embodies the excitement and fun of getting ready for a dressy event. Trying on all your best looks, making a fancy make-up, putting on your high-heels, spending hours in front of the mirror – all these emotions a woman experiences during preparation moments inspired the glamorous spirit of Jimmy Choo fragrance. This same spirit is reflected in Jimmy Choo Flash sunglasses.
Jimmy Choo Flash sunglasses feature a sleek cat-eye shape. But the key feature is the glittering fabric with Swarovski crystals on the front part. These shades give off a wonderful Swarovski glitter that looks especially impressive when they reflect the lights of soffits and camera flashes. It’s hard to be left unnoticed wearing these sparkling sunglasses.
These eyewear items come in four color variations. The one with shaded brown lenses feature nude crystals and a nude frame. Other options have grey lenses and include the black sunglasses with silver crystals, blue shades with either blue or black crystals and black sunglasses with black crystals. You are very likely to find the one to match your favorite evening gown.
All the sunglasses come with a case adorned with glittering fabric – that’s because the accessories for special events should be stored in fancy cases.
You only need to wait until August for the eyewear pieces to become available in Jimmy Choo boutiques and selected department stores. Autumn is a great time to attend premieres, exhibition openings and fashion weeks. Jimmy Choo sunglasses are the kind of accessory that’ll help you to look the part during any of these events.
You know, how it’s a good idea to have some universal accessories that match most of your clothes and are acceptable to be worn all year around. But if you are a kind of person who likes “here and now” kind of lifestyle – that’s not your way. In winter months you probably wear something that is truly wintery, and around June you feel like buying a few undoubtedly summer garments. Sounds like you? Then don’t miss spring / summer 2013 collection of Ray-Ban wayfarers.
Ray-Ban designers just injected a dose of new trends into the legendary wayfarer design. The new additions to Ray-Ban selection are presented in two lines. There is a Ray Ban Wayfarer Surf Up line employing Hawaiian floral pattern and Ray Ban Wayfarer Patchwork with the pattern resembling patchwork technique. It’s really original to get inspired by the pattern that is often used for making warm winter rugs to create summer eyewear, but in case of Ray Ban it really works.
One can choose between two designs: the one with the temples only patterned from inside and the other with unusual coloring embellishing the whole piece. These undoubtedly look more summer when, for example, black wayfarers. And they are way more original than colored wayfarers that feature just one hue.
The idea of adding a modern touch to timeless design with several strokes of paint is simple as all the brilliant ideas are. That’s how classy Ray-Ban sunglasses turn into ultra-trendy accessories.
