More than a functional piece of daily life, eyeglasses are now part of a major trend in fashion-forward styles. From celebrities like Demi Moore to Brad Pitt, eyeglasses are making their appearance on the celebrity red carpet.
Milena Cavicchioli, vice president of marketing for Luxottica Group — the Milan-based eyewear company that owns major eyeglass retailers such as Ray-Ban, Oakley and Oliver Peoples—states that fashion designers are catering to the trend with styled looks ready for the runway.
“The [optical] collections themselves are becoming more elaborate,” she said. “There are some [styles] that are like jewelry pieces, that make a big fashion statement — like Prada’s Baroque frame, for example. The collections are being treated in a more fashion-forward way.”
