Blue Sky Eye Magazine 2020

Shape: The new decade has brought out the best in our industry designers. Current shapes are a powerful combination of classics and the unexpected. You’ll find new shapes with updated colors in all our collections, as well as classic styles in new materials.

A fresh color palette and lightweight materials make the MODO 4520 a modern classic.

• Decades past may have been one-size-fits-all, but this decade brings a focus on unique styles for all sizes. • Round frames never go out of style. We’re seeing fresh interpretations of this classic shape. • Popular in the 70s, angular shapes like octagonal and exaggerated rectangles are having a resurgence. • The 80s haven’t been left out of the new shapes we are stocking. Ask your optician to show you oversized squares, butterfly shapes, and ovals with bold temple details. • The classic aviator is also in demand. Whether masculine, feminine, full metal, or a combination of metal and plastic, this shape will firmly take its place in the shape trends for this decade and beyond.

The Jhane Barnes Adjugate frame has a real wood frame front with leather laminate and stainless steel temples. Available in brick red or navy blue.

Frame Tech: Technology used in materials, design, and electronics continues to evolve, and eyewear is incorporating these advances.

Technology for frames in 2020 includes: • Ultra-lightweight materials are utilized to achieve all-day comfort and wearability. • Advancements in screwless hinges mean fewer trips to have screws tightened or replaced. • Hypoallergenic frames are no longer limited to a handful of simple styles. With increasing need from patients, nickel-free frames are now available in a wide variety of styles, colors, shapes, materials, and sizes.
