2010 Sees Eyewear on the Runway

In addition to emerging wardrobe staples, many of the industryís top designers are putting eyewear on display on the runway in 2010.

At the Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear show, Emporio Armani presented a stylish take on this yearís military trend. He paired a warm-weather version of the pea coat, complete with large buttons, and a flouncy, A-line skirt both in charcoal gray. Up top, the model wore over-sized, round sunglasses with narrow legs reminiscent of Emporio Armaniís 9636 in black with grey, shaded lenses.

Prada featured several retro eyewear frames in their fall show which was characterized by 1950s throwback style. Slight cat-eye glasses, similar to the Prada 15MV, were paired with a khaki dress embellished with layers of bust ruffles. Several beehive hairdos were featured with top-heavy eyeglasses, like the Prada 07MV, in outrageous reds and yellows signifying there will be color in fallís palette.

Runway fashion often seems designed to surprise and shock, and this year, eyewear is no exception. For spring 2010 Haute Couture, Valentino showed their contribution to the futuristic and sci-fi trend. Models took the runway in metallic tones, mummy-wrapped layers, and billowing outerwear that could double as a space suit. Attention was called to every modelís eyes through a combination of brightly colored stripes of paint or swathes of translucent fabric worn headband style over their eyes. Valentino may have done better to outfit the ladies in borderline futuristic frames from their sunglass collection, maybe the striped and smoky VAL 5558 or the strikingly large VAL 5687/S.
