This fall celebrates the best of the 70s and 80s – with select pieces hailing from top
eyewear designers Balenciaga and Frederic Beausoleil.
Balenciagaʼs experts brought back the oversized frames – originally made popular in
the 1970s by Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior – by adding a modern twist, suited
perfectly for this yearʼs bohemian fashionistas. Paired with your favorite bangles,
knuckle rings and maxi skirts, this look is one that will last through the ages.
Although Frederic Beausoleil has only been crafting eyewear since 1987, his latest
styles give a nod to Gianfranco Ferreʼs round style, originally created in the 1980s, and
John Lennonʼs iconic 1970s look from his later days with The Beatles. This
combination of subtle cat eye and round classic frames suits the most sophisticated
personality, with an added touch of whimsy for the young at heart.
