To further highlight our Bend the Trend campaign, we thought it would be fun to feature our own staff and how they interpret this season’s hottest glasses styles. Victor, Natalie, Kenichi and Shannon have taken on our French Pop trend which draws from the late 50’s and 60’s with looks for the season inspired by mid-century fashion like up-swept cat eyes and wing tipped shapes.
