Converse are known for their cool sensibility and these frames merge classic lines with an urban edge for the glasses wearer who wants a touch of vintage with attitude. These full rim frames carry a wood effect which is lifted and offset against transparent blue acetate. The impact is immediate yet not overbearing. Exactly what you'd want from a pair of frames to take you seamlessly from the office into weekend wear. I personally can't wait to break out these baby blues!

Cath Kidston 01 - €149

SKU 30571181

When it comes to hot colours for 2018, red proved to be one of the most popular trends at fashion weeks across the world, both on and off the catwalks. Scarlet red creates a romantic yet daring look and is one of my personal favourites of the season. These Cath Kidston frames nail the trend while injecting fun and personality with the polka dot, giving these frames a somewhat retro vibe.
