Double bridges and glasses with heavier brows dominate the number one spot for 2019

Tuesday 2nd April 2019

Double bridges and glasses with heavier brows dominate the number one spot for 2019. Having recently gained popularity, these classic unisex styles are just as attractive on the female wearer as they are masculine on a man.

Dunelm Optical have responded to consumer demand and added more spectacles with double bridges and brow bars to their portfolio. Oliver Beaumont, Product Development Director explains; “The trend for lighter frames is increasingly apparent, however, customers still want to make a statement and the iconic aviator design with attractive brow bar and bridge does this in an understated way. Customers enjoy this style as it conveys classic panache in a modern manner.”

New for 2019 and available with free glazing and single vision prescription, Paul Costelloe 5230 is available in lavish Gold/Brown (C1) and sleek Bronze/Black (C2). Its aviator design is lightweight and clean with titanium brow, bridge and sides. Offering a vintage vibe with a polished and contemporary finish, its sophisticated brow bar and bridge is a discreet but significant feature, sure to be a hit with every fashion forward male.

Oliver Beaumont goes on to say; “The current design interest in ‘brows and bridges’ is set to continue moving forward but it never really left. This is partly because it is a versatile style look, can be used in varying guises and in a combination of materials to create a statement pair of glasses. A lot of celebrities have been spotted wearing the double bridge-aviator inspired style, it gives a cool allure with a shape that is always going to be on trend.”
