Color Your Summer With ProDesign ZENSE Eyeglasses

ProDesign eyeglasses - The ZENSE Collection

If there is one thing most people can note about the trends this season, it would be the ubiquitous bright colors. Seen all over the fashion industry, from clothing and accessories to makeup and more, you can’t go anywhere this summer without seeing vibrant hues at every turn. You can join in on the fun with the ZENSE collection from ProDesign eyewear, which blends aluminum, acetate, and titanium materials to create multi-textural frames that are just as vivid and stunning as the rest of your summer wardrobe!

ProDesign 7901 Eyeglasses

ProDesign eyeglasses in style 7901 are a great feminine look, with a structured rectangular silhouette that looks wonderfully flattering on those with softer facial features. The pink aluminum front stands out against the silver block hinge and brown outer surface of the arm piece. As you can see, the inner surface has a funky pattern that adds some action to these beautiful designer glasses.

Adjustable nose pads and curved ear tips allow for a comfortable fit.

ProDesign 7903 Eyeglasses

Lastly, these ProDesign glasses in style 7903 are the ultimate geek chic accessory. Rather than going retro with a pair of Wayfarer style chunky glasses, these frames (available in several other colors) have a more modern take on the popular nerd look. A unisex frame, the rectangular rims have rounded corners to flatter most faces. A subtle pattern lines the inner surface for an understated accent on this style.

Yes, Oakley eyeglasses are the perfect complement to your sporty shades, with an athletic appeal that is perfect for both casual and professional atmospheres.

Oakley Rhinochaser eyeglassesOakley Rhinochaser eyeglasses are chic and sophisticated, with a semi-rimless frame made of C-5 Alloy that allows for a super light and durable design. The thin Mono Shock hinges are an innovative technology that increases flexibility, which is important when protecting against impact and any other accidental harsh damage. The Rhinochaser has a rectangular silhouette and slim arm pieces, accented with an Oakley eyewear logo on each side and Unobtainium ear pieces, a material that increases grip through sweat.

Oakley Tumbleweed eyeglassesOakley Tumbleweed glasses have a sportier appeal, with their Unobtainium logo and ear socks that are actually reversible. You can rotate them to expose a new color to match your outfit or your mood, whatever you’re feeling! The full-rim rectangular frames also feature adjustable nose pods for a comfortable fit.

Oakley Cloverleaf eyeglasses

Oakley Cloverleaf eyeglasses are a different look from the usual Oakley glasses that you see. On the artsier side of things, this polished black frame comes in a thick plastic, with rounded rectangular lenses and sloping arm pieces that are embellished with the company logo on each temple.

Star Sunwear: MYKITA Franz Sunglasses

Despite the end of its run in 2004, HBO’s Sex and the City has left a lasting impression on the world of fashion. Many ladies still look to Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw for style inspiration today – she was a woman who wasn’t afraid to take risks and who wore the boldest outfits with a smile. One of her favorite accessories that is still popular today was seen in the film Sex and the City 2: MYKITA Franz sunglasses.

Just look at these frames! Aren’t they stunning? These designer sunglasses are made of gold stainless steel, in a classic aviator silhouette that is flattering on many face shapes. The lenses have a gold mirror treatment, which offers added privacy and protection from the sun, and has the extra bonus of making you look like a diva with a fabulously flashy sense of style.

MYKITA Franz sunglasses

MYKITA Franz sunglasses are part of a limited edition collection created in collaboration with the famous European designer Bernhard Willhelm. As you can see above, the closed bridge aviator is connected to the wide arm pieces via a screw-less hinge – MYKITA eyewear‘s innovative technology that uses interlocking pieces instead of a small screw for extra strength and durability. The snap-on snap-off hinge makes repairs easy, reducing any worries of damage from accidental harsh treatment.

Although Ms. Bradshaw has inspired many women to go out and grab these limited edition frames, they are certainly not just for women! Aviators are universally flattering – check out these photos from the brand’s “Me, MYKITA, & I” blog.
