| PEACE NOW
i-dealoptics Frenzy from the Peace collection
It’s the time of year when eyewear manufacturers pull out the stops with vivid colors and edgy patterns in their children’s collections.
Kids love summer-school is out, playtime is abundant, the grass for rolling around on is greener, and the sky appears to be bluer. And it’s also a good time to introduce eyewear with new summer colors and patterns.
Color choices are plentiful during this time of year. ClearVision Optical, for example, features “Sherbet”-inspired eyewear within the Op Eyewear collection. Each acetate style comes in six tasty colors. My favorite is the European-inspired, wayfarer-shaped Gelato in blueberry. Look at Clown in purple from A&A Optical’s PEZ collection. Girlie girls can’t resist this vibrant, playful, and multi-toned look.
Teens and tweens who are feeling hip can enjoy eyewear designed specifically for them, especially when it’s more grownup and the fit is just right.
Check out the Kids Central collection by Silver Dollar Optical and you’ll see cool KC1652. The translucent purple acetate front makes way for the bold, colorful, and fashionable temples. The bright colored temples are made of laminated acetate for a multi-dimensional look that is sure to please tweens and teens.
For many years, the tween/teen demographic had to resort to smaller adult frames or styles that were too juvenile. Peace Eyewear by i-dealoptics is the perfect opportunity to address the need for those in-between sizes in colorful, on-trend designs. This collection highlights the iconic peace symbol in both bold and subtle ways.
One of the most beautiful sights in the summertime is when flowers are at their peak. This is evident in children’s eyewear too. One delightful, flower-inspired frame is Flower in the kensie girl collection by Kenmark Optical. This flattering upsweep shape incorporates playful and fun flowers that are engraved on the temples.
For the outdoor enthusiast, check out Trevor within the new MARCHONYC Kids Eyewear collection from Marchon Eyewear, with its cool camouflage patterned temple. The combination of the trendy shape and eye-catching, matte-finish camo creates a casual and sophisticated look just for him.
Kids can feel like its summer all year long by wearing summertime colors and patterns in their eyewear.
