Spring Trends | High Shine

Gloss, glitter, metallics, sparkles and studs were all hot on the catwalk this year. AMQ captured the Ziggy Stardust spirit with foil biker jackets whilst Moschino went kitsch with Barbie in bacofoil. Glowy cheeks and dewy brows were also some of the more fashionable beauty looks with Chanel using glitter for the perfect disco cateye. Whether you choose the merge the glam 1970s look or a futuristic urban style, there’s no doubt that High Shine can apply to your sunglasses too!

 

Spring Trends | 1970s

The biggest trend emerging from Paris, New York, London and Milan was  undoubtedly the 1970s. Big, bold shapes and sepia tinted lenses echo the retro period perfectly whether you decide to channel Jane Birkin’s hippie chic, Joan Jett’s rock chick edge, Bianca Jagger’s ‘Studio 54’ spirit or Debbie Harry’s disco diva attitude. Think bright, bold patterns, oranges, reds, tans and yellows with suede, tassles and enormous geometric cuts!

 

Spring Trends | Round Frames

Whether its a vintage ’60s look or a bold 1970s style, round frames are the hottest shape of the season. Chloe, Tom Ford and Miu Miu have all been going for dramatic oversized versions in striking prints and unusual shapes like those we’ve seen on Solange Knowles whilst Ray Ban, Shwood and Prada have been re-vamping the traditional John Lennon-style tea shades for a more subtle contemporary look. Either way, this trends has got us dizzy!

 

Spring Trends | Modern Classic
You can never go wrong with a classic and that’s something that the likes of Persol, Tom Ford, Philip Lim, Ray ban and Saint Laurent know all too well. Just as a tailored suit transcends time and trends, so do the iconic frames of the Golden Age. From eccentric rounds to classic pilot-style Aviators, from 1960s Club-masters to 1950s Buddy Holly Wayfarers; you can never go wrong with keeping it clean cut, clear and simple. These modern updated classics will last a lifetime so you can pay homage to the silver screen stars of the Forties, Fifties, Sixes and beyond…
Spring Trends | Sports Luxe

The Sports Luxe trends quite possibly owes everything to Stella McCartney and Lacoste. Luckily this super chic, super comfy and ultra-contemporary look has caught on in the fashion world and now every brand from Nike and Adidas to Alexander McQueen and Burberry is replicating the colourful and sophisticated take on sportswear. Forget 1980s spandex, this look is all about stylish windbreakers, slouchy tailored suits, trainers as casual wear, mesh and innovative materials. The odd pop of colour in the form of pastel hues, fluorescent strips and block monochrome colouring makes this trends bold and wearable for every day which is why you can easily allow your shades to do the talking.

 

Spring Trends | Quirky Prepster

There’s a trend on this seasons’ catwalk which we can’t quite figure. It’s a dash of preppy, a smidge of geek chic and a whole lot of quirky style. Think geometric prints, block colours and candy stripes worn with turtle neck sweaters, tweed jackets and tailored trousers. This look is Art student meets Eton boy with an eccentric English gent twist. Think Wes Anderson and Ralph Lauren on safari with Paul Smith and you’re pretty close to this playful and charming look.

 

Spring Trends | Brights

Pastel hues and floral prints come back every Spring but this season there’s a difference. Rainbow brights are back in a big way and they can be as bold, quirky and playful as the 11 year old inside you desires. Moschino wowed with its’ Barbie themed catwalk show in Milan, sending out models in bleach blonde wigs and hot pink ensembles whilst Burberry, Dolce and Gabbana and Miu Miu injected a vibrant splash of colour onto their retro inspired pieces. A fusion of Clueless’ Cher Horowitz and Carmen Miranda, this look is all about fun. Whether its’ fluorescent acid hues, pastel shades or tropical prints; the only way colour in Spring 2015 is to wear lots of it so why not start with your shades?
