Streamlined elegance, contemporary vintage style, high-contrast citywear: the time has come to gather again at the Trend Forum to discover and lay claim to the four great trends of the months to come: Absolute Design, Neo Stalgie, Archie Crea and Pixel Street.

4 major trends will be highlighted:

ABSOLUTE DESIGN

Simplicity is the art of precision shapes and harmonious lines, sometimes taken to extremes of minimalism and transparency for the perfect glasses with character to spare.

Key word: Streamlined elegance

NEO-STALGIA

Fashion and design continue to shuttle back and forth between past and present, and vintage is back in style with a touch of nostalgia that stands the test of time with creativity and humour for glasses that appear traditional – or in some cases flashy – at first glance.

Key word: Contemporary vintage

ARCHI-TECH

Glasses manufacturers and designers pursue aesthetic breakthroughs to reinvent shapes and sizes. They propose a sort of “optical tailoring” through elaborate frames with very structured, controlled, and – in some cases – bold lines

Key word: Contrasting citywear

PIXEL STREET

The digital world meets street sports in the form of glasses stimulated by technological and aesthetic innovations, asserting the “aerodynamic comfort” of their shapes and the rhythmic combination of their lines.

Key word: Fun techno casual
