Preview KZ50012 SPECTACLE Spectacle Eyeworks has added a stunning new stainless steel frame to their Spectacle Eyeworks house collection. KZ40010 KZ40014 THÉLIOS Kenzo’s first eyewear collection, made in collaboration with Thélios, includes diverse styles with distinctive shapes and futuristic influences. The spring/summer 2019 release includes KZ40010, a futuristic mask style, and KZ40014, which features a new modern and strong version of the aviator shape. The KZ50012 optical frame boasts an exaggerated teardrop shape, while KZ50014 is a modern and feminine cat-eye style with a distinctive acetate-to-metal fusion. The new style, called Shandeh, honours a sweet and angelic soul with a design ex- pressing divine poetic harmony and love. Mehran Baghaie, operations director and chief designer, says, “I had to create something melodic and uniquely beautiful with the namesake of my beloved baby girl, Shandeh. She inspires me every day and ignites not only my heart and soul but my creativity and motivation to be the best person I can possibly be.” The new design incorporates an added v-shape double-break accent on top of the frame to further exaggerate the cat-eye motif and pull up against the cheekbones, enhancing and even creating attractive and alluring lines of the face. Shandeh is available in seven colorful and contrasting colour combinations includ- ing a bubble gum and hot pink, vintage turquoise with havana, and indigo blue.
