Acetate: a classic choice for a reason

Acetate frames come in a nearly endless number of colours and patterns. That’s why they remain one of the season’s most popular materials. Clear, green, and shades of pink are a trendy pick for regular glasses and sunglasses this fall and winter.

Furthermore, acetate is easy to work with, resistant, and visually appealing. In other words, it’s a sure-fire choice for the optical industry. But that doesn’t mean manufacturers aren’t constantly working to innovate and develop new products.

For instance, our Editorial Collection features plenty of new items designed with bio-acetate, such as the Chloé frames below. Bio-acetate is made with an organic, plant-based plasticizer (a natural, renewable, and biodegradable material) that is also non-toxic and non-pollutant.

Curves, curves, and more curves

This season, curved frames are all the rage. Try a pair of rounded square, butterfly, or rectangular frames for a look that softens your gaze. The new frames shown below were chosen by our opticians and will give you an idea of what’s available in our clinics.

Curved frames are an excellent choice for those with long or angular face shapes.

To find out which types of frames suit your face shape and optical prescription, take a look at our article on the topic or trust our opticians and advisors if you need guidance. They’ll be more than happy to help when you book a free try-on session.

The little black dress/frames

A black pair of frames is a choice that never goes out of style. Just like the little black dress, they remain timeless. Whatever the materials, shape, or design, black frames will pair well with your most casual or bold attires.

You can’t go wrong with black frames for sunglasses either. They’re still a favourite pick of celebrities who want to don a mysterious look or attempt to go incognito.

If you’re looking for a bit of glamour and sophistication, or a subdued and versatile accessory, visit one of our clinics. You’ll be able to try different styles to discover which type of black frames suits you the best.

A flat, straight bridge for a look that really stands out

When it comes to sunglasses, long, narrow frames remain very popular. On the other hand, there is a growing demand for more prominent, flat-bridged frames.

Reminder: when you pick a new pair of frames, you should always pay attention to your brow line. Your arch should slightly show above your glasses. That’s why it’s so important to try a pair of frames in store first. This is especially true if you’re looking for a bolder pair of frames such as the ones shown below.

Book a visit at your Opto-Réseau clinic in the next few weeks to try any of the models shown above. That way, you’ll be certain to find the pair that suits your face.
