This autumn the aesthetics of 2010, together with the #balletcore trend, the nerd era, the rise of old-money and silent luxury are placing different accessories in our imagination as new objects of desire. Among them, eyeglasses. Although we already saw them take over coolness last year with Bella Hadid, who complements her looks with tiny glasses, this season they are even more popular. In addition to its XXS version, faithful to the dosmilera aesthetic, this accessory lands in our wardrobes in all its formats, from aviator style, to cat-eye or XXL version. From HIGHXTAR. we review our favourites for this autumn/winter 2023-2024.
For the more daring, we present the Arnette Gamoor that stands out for its esoteric style. The best part is that this season the brand is introducing 95% recycled plastic frames so now, as well as being on trend with the brand’s iconic retro-futuristic 90s frame, you’ll also be being environmentally friendly. A bold bridge and curved tapered temples enhance the matte hue we’ve chosen to bring out your cyberpunk side.
Rafter is a rectangular evolution of the iconic Oakley Plank series. The silhouette comes updated with the lighter O Matter™ frame. Plus, Oakley’s famous Three-Point Fit makes them even more comfortable. While at first glance the square shape makes it a more common silhouette in the eyewear universe than its predecessors, the clear frame gives it a unique twist. Making it a discreet option, but with personality and also very easy to combine.
This chunky cat-eye from Vogue is the perfect way to elevate your look this season. The silhouette, with its carved profile in lightweight nylon fibre, is complemented by adjustable temples in a three-dimensional floral embossing and a textured finish that perfectly matches the librarian aesthetic. In this case, we’ve gone for the tortoiseshell option to further reinforce the nerdy era so prevalent on the latest catwalks and stretstyles.
If there is one particular moment in history when the aviator came into fashion, it is undoubtedly the release of the film Top Gun, starring Tom Cruise in 1986. This classic silhouette that we associate with the iconic Ray-Ban brand is our latest addition to the wishlist. The gold metallic frame has been updated with tortoiseshell detailing for a two-tone look. The temples, nose bridge and classic line connecting the lenses feature embossed detailing.
