Creative Upheaval 
Colors: Vibrance leads the way with neon blues, greens, yellows, reds and oranges proving to be hot commodities, while dashes of jet blacks, crisp whites, metallics, and softer pink, purple and creamsicle hues play a balancing act
Shapes: Out-of-the-box silhouettes like geometrics, exaggerated cat-eyes and boastful rounds, not to mention profiles with athletic roots invigorated with modern flair like funky shields, reimagined aviators and chic wraparounds
Details: Tinted and flash lenses in a range of colorways take center stage, plus translucent frames, layered materials, cut-outs, gemstone embellishments, bold brow-bars and flat lenses, as well as varying patterns from rainbow, to polka dot, to angular

Eclectic + Evolved 
Colors: An understated, yet edgy, palette inclusive of simplistic blacks, grays, whites, nudes, silvers and golds, with occasional bright yellows, reds, blues and greens making statement appearances
Shapes: Precision is paramount with carefully constructed, never-seen-before silhouettes like half-rounds, triangle profiles and bucket-like cat-eyes intermixed with perfect rounds, streamlined feline shapes, oversized shields, and squares and rectangles with the cleanest of lines
Details: Rhinestone-encrusted finishes, glitter galore, slick glossy looks, reflective lenses, industrial wire constructions, plus double and floating bridges bring an air of futurism to this selection

Universal Connection 
Colors: Earthy pantones—of burnt oranges, coffee browns and forest greens—collide with coastal colors—of sandy beiges, sky blues and sunny yellows—for a palette reflective of nature’s truest essence
Shapes: With influence from global cultures and the retro era, silhouettes ranging from chunky rounds, to demure cat-eyes, to larger squared-off aviators, to big-time squares, to studious rounds reign supreme
Details: Tangible elements are taken quite literally, as flora and fauna prints and appliques, animalistic patterns, woodsy textures and leather materials stand out from the crowd, complemented by ombre effects reminiscent of watercolor, scalloped edging and colored lenses in hues inspired by the great outdoors
