Gucci 2011 – Collection Additions

Gucci has taken an offensive market penetration approach this year and released a large collection of both ophthalmic and sunglasses collection. We covered details of the initial Gucci 2011 glasses collection in earlier post. But as year moves on, Gucci came up with more models that are lovely! Check them out before buying anything else:

As usually many of the models come in different color. And color – is the main element of determining the style, especially in plastic models. You may also notice that some of the models have a hint on cat eye shape with raised corners. Gucci is positioning themselves to appeal to younger market, people who are trendy, but in the same time value brand name appeal and quality. These recent models are made in this strategy in mind.

Sunglasses Trends 2011

Following the overview of ophthalmic frame trends for 2011, we can’t wait to tell you what’s new for sunglasses. Unlike prescription glasses, that still in the bottom of mind are considered health items by many, sunglasses are all about fashion. General fashion trends are often passed on to sunglasses with each season. Sunglasses are also often worn by models during the runway shows. Here are some notable similarities for Spring 2011.

Cat Eye


Cat Eye is super big this season. There were few first movers last year testing the market. This year almost every fashion forward brand name has their version of cat eye. These shapes have a potential of becoming all time classic and we feel will stay current for the next 5 years at the very least. Presently you will find many variations of cat eye, more balanced and fitted for different face types. Some sunglasses models are even made with catty color to emphasize the idea – this for real fashionistas.

Unisex Rocks


This year we noticed that there are much more unisex options than before. It is possible that the trend got influenced by slowing economy where ladies had to say no to many luxuries. Also, with continuous increase of woman joining men at work and putting on pant suits, more sunglasses are made to compliment this style.

Printed Patterns


You already have a black pair of sunglasses, a tortoise and even white. Now is time to get something less conservative. Get printed pattern. Your favourite square or rectangular shape is still on, but with a stripy or animal print pattern it will look updated and so Spring 2011.

Gucci 3190/S Roberto Cavalli RC587S

 

Oversized Minimalism


Sunglasses have been getting bigger every year in the past few years. You hardly can even find narrow rectangular shapes and even those are kept mainly to fit prescription lenses. Anything fashion is now big. Big rounds, big squares, big aviators, big shields. What is notable this year is the minimal decor. Many models of 2011 are kept simple, with little decoration and narrow temples.

Gucci 3162/S Prada PR 17MS Dior Mitza 3/S

 

Something for Men – Heavy Bridge


Heavy bridge is big for men frames in 2011. This is probably one of distinguishing elements on homme-only frames. And even with unisex being so big this year, these frames won’t look good on many women, so men got something for themselves. Look for heavy bridge when shopping for men sunglasses this year.

Ophthalmic Frames Trends 2011

Spring of 2011 is a true season of interesting innovations in prescription glasses trends. We made observations from a number of premium brand collections and have spotted similarities that hope you will follow.

 

Clear Frames

Clear frames have definitely kicked in. If you prefer plastic glasses over metal but always looked for something lighter on your face, clear is the way to go. Put these on and you will get a “disappearing” effect, similar to rimless. In the same time these glasses look dressy and unusual. These are a definite compliment sucker.

Colorful Oversized Shapes

Oversized round and square shapes were on the market since last two years. As people just started to get used to them and only real fashionistas put them on, this year added even more fun to these retro rounders – color. Of course, black is still a hit, but if you are looking for something more suitable for your light hair or tanned skin, 2011 gives you more options:

Dior 3198 Gucci 1635 Dior 3198

 

Cat Eye

This intricate eyeglasses shape was slowly getting introduced back to the market through few sunglasses models in 2010. But not many expected that 2011 will became a real boom of cat eye shapes. Almost every premium designer has their version of cat eye glasses. While glasses may look a bit wild on the shelf, you should definitely try them on to see the result. The uplifted side corners open up eyes quite nicely on many face types and look especially good on round and square face shapes. Due to popularity of this shape this year, we added it to the menu for you to quickly find cat eye prescription glasses and cat eye sunglasses frames on our website.

Dior 3197 Dior 3203 Prada PR 23MV

 

Decorated Geeky Frames

By now people got used to black heavy geeky frames that no longer see a barrier in any of age or status categories. Some companies experimented with adding elements of decor to the temple and front of the frame to make those more appealing and girly.

Navette Shapes

Navette is a real novelty of this year with few companies introducing their first versions. We expect much more next year, so if you are a first mover getting navette shaped eyewear will guarantee you first place on “Most Trendy” list. Disregarding whether you are into fashion or not, this shape will look great if you have a small face. Also looks great on Asians.

Gucci 3134 Prada 17MV Tiffany TF2033

 

Two Tone

Plastic frames remain all time favourites for many people. Fashion brands agreed to experiment with the color also offering two tone lamination options. Result is actually quite nice especially when light color is on the inner side illuminating the face from the inside.

Boss 0186 Prada PS 11AV Tiffany 2016

Another interesting looking option with two tones gradually flowing vertically or horizontally.

Gucci 3094 Gucci 3152 Dior 3204

Gucci Sunglasses Spring 2011 Collection

Following a very successful 2010 year, Gucci is continuing to do designs that are both suitable for many people and fashionable. In 2011 Gucci took a safe path in choosing colors. Black and their best seller Tortoise, make most of their collection color tone and will suit people of any skin and hair color. Logo design has not changed since last year, and bright gold or gunmetal silver is still a signature on most of the frames.

Here are some 2011 frames that you should have a look at before shopping for any other brand.

Cat EyeCat Eye Gucci 2891 and Gucci 3162. These are the only cat eye frames from Gucci this year. Again, Gucci tries to remain conservative catering to majority, but as a fashionable brand they did follow the 2011 cat eye mania and released their version of it, one metal and one plastic.

Gucci 2891/S Gucci 3162/S

Bold Square Shapes are dominant. We already see that ladies enjoy what was supposed to be men models, among them Gucci 1648, Gucci 1945, Gucci 1641 and Gucci 1943. These models come in a variety of colors and will look amazing on both guys and girls.

Gucci 1648/S Gucci 1945/S
Gucci 1641/S Gucci 1943/S

Feminine Bold Squares. Of course, ladies first… so Gucci, understanding that ladies love big logos and wrapped around fitting, released these models to satisfy beauties that want latest 2011 square trend. Gucci 3170/S, Gucci 3170/N/S, Gucci 3169/S and Gucci 2892/S.

Gucci 3169/S Gucci 2892/S

Bold Aviator. This is not a sweet, classic aviator any more. It is a military inspired, wide, thick aviator that is covering bigger part of your face. Gucci, along with Dior and Prada are setting this trend for 2011. If you want something new, here your go: Gucci 1639, Gucci 1944, Gucci 1566 and Gucci 1889.

Gucci 1639/S Gucci 1944/S
Gucci 1566/S Gucci 1889/S

Updated 2010 models include Gucci 3159, Gucci 3161, Gucci 3163, Gucci 3164. Last year Gucci totally rocked outselling big brand names such as Chanel. This year they are clearly set to win and instead of reinventing the wheel they updated a number of models without any trend following, just keeping their main colors and shapes that sold well.

Sunglasses by Color

Have you ever wondered what other color glasses you like come in? Many retailers won’t tell you the truth because they want to sell what they got in stock. Did you ever walked in the store and started scanning for the color of your interest thinking “I know only brown looks good on me”.
