Eyewear designers are reworking and rethinking classic shapes to transform acetate favourites into stainless steel frames that evoke a vintage feel while communicating a truly modern style. Metal frames are a great solve for fit as, unlike their acetate counterparts, their silicone nose pads allow for adjustment.
If you’re unsure of how to make the leap from acetate plastic to metal, start by looking at your current favourite glasses style and finding a similar look. Next, take into consideration your face shape. A shape that works well in acetate will translate perfectly to metal.
