Autumn & Winter Trends

Wednesday 13th March 2019

Autumn Winter 2019 is the season for “anything goes”, explains Oliver Beaumont, Product Development Director for Dunelm Optical. “2019 has brought a lot of stylish looks and favours the bold! However, if the key size of bigger shaped frames isn’t your thing, we have also seen the revamping of classic shapes that are as current as ever”.

Bold colours have been a must throughout 2019 but it’s neutral hues that will reign supreme in the colder months. Watch out for these neutral tones, they are everywhere and are especially evident on translucent acetate frames as seen on BONAPARTE; from our stunning new Joseph collection. Handmade in Italy from the finest mazzucchelli acetate with an elegant upswept shape. Bonaparte is available in Nude Beige (C3), Smokey Grey (C2) and Classic Tortoiseshell (C4).

Oliver Beaumont goes on to say, “Translucent acetate has captured the imagination of fashion designers everywhere and lends itself to be transposed in an array of accessories and works particularly well on eyewear. Subtle and fashion forward at the same time, transparent eyewear is here to stay, whether it be in colourless neutral versions or the bolder, colourful counterparts”.

Another key trend sure to sell well this Autumn is the ever popular aviator. A lot of celebrities have been spotted wearing the double bridge-aviator inspired style because it gives a cool allure with a shape that is always on trend. Oliver explains; “the aviator frame has been given a sporty edge with bold and colourful acetate”. DUKE from our stunning new Joseph collection, handmade in Italy from the finest mazzucchelli acetate, is aviator-inspired and features a contemporary double bridge in bold colours of Rich Claret (C4), Karki Mottle (C3) and Burnished Amber (C1).

Oliver concludes; “Dunelm Optical are continuously watching up-coming trends and our team of designers transpose these on to ‘future-classics’, which is very much the look to watch out for in Autumn Winter 2019”.
