Achieve The Quiet Luxury Aesthetic: In Eyewear!

While bold and colorful frames are popular this year, a parallel trend where subtlety and elegance prevail is equally captivating and pleasurable to wear. Quiet luxury, also known as new-age minimalism, puts particular emphasis on quality, form, timeless details, and a sense of enduring beauty and lasting appeal. In eyewear like readers, this direction has long been a focus, where frames combine materials of quality, a beautiful fit and colors that feel classic and stylish to wear.

Across apparel and accessory collections, the color palette typical of the quiet luxury look is conservative, neutral, and always flattering with natural tones and a few classic colors like black taking precedent. For glasses, the trend also tends to avoid decoration and embellishments, with logos and monograms being reduced to the minimum, if visible at all on the exterior of the frame.

For Spring/Summer, subtle sculpted effects in acetate as well as barely-there metal rims – lightweight metals are recommended for their particular comfort - also fit this luxury style of dressing perfectly where a contemporary yet effortless style is the order of the day!
