Note to readers: The Face a Face frames in the post have been retired over the years. To view the latest Face a Face Bocca frames and this designer’s latest collection, please click here!
A little while back we showed you some of the available styles of Face a Face Bocca glasses, a collection of various styles from the French brand that all have a unique detail that’ll put a little spring in your step, literally! Each frame has a pair of legs as its arms, which have stiletto heels decorating the end. What started out as a novel creation has turned into a full collection of little legs, and now with a variety of shoes that may even rival your own closet. Take a look at some of the new styles, some of which recently debuted at the Silmo optical exhibition in Paris.
Face a Face Little Bocca eyeglasses are for kids, with legs that feature tube socks and purple sneakers. Children will love this quirky style – it’s different from anything they’ve probably ever seen, and their friends will get a “kick” out of it too!
The Smoking2 is a new version of the original Smoking1 style, which traded in the red hot stilettos for a pair of smoking shoes and tuxedo pants. The first edition was black with white socks and black shoes, and this new version gets a colorful update with its transparent pink and purple design.
This new frame, known as Bocca Sixties, is one of our new favorite pairs of Face a Face glasses. We didn’t think they could get any cuter, then they debuted the patterned capris and pink flats. Does the outfit come with the glasses?
And if you missed it, these are the originals, a sexy collection of voluptuous legs and hot heels. There are optical versions as well as sun, and you can see the blue version here.
This week we debuted a new brand on in our online shop, with 15 new styles available that add to our expanding collection of innovative designer eyewear from German brands. That’s right, yet another eyeglasses company out in Europe has caught our eye, and it sure keeps us entranced with its crazy silhouettes and funky color combinations. Check it out:
Wissing eyewear has some amazing styles that you’ve never seen before, like the above Wissing 2653 eyeglasses. This asymmetrical frame comes in navy blue, with a slim plastic frame, a bridge that is both straight and arched, and, oh yeah, one square lens and one circular lens. If you take a look at local fashion blogger HollyDolly’s blog, you’ll see her wearing this exact pair on her visit to Vizio last year.
In this pair of Wissing 2340 eyeglasses, have pronounced rectangular lenses separated by a center-set bridge with an arch in the middle, decorated in red, blue, yellow, orange and purple stripes. This bold frame is by no means for the fashion timid. It’s the perfect style for someone who wants to stand out from the rest and be their own person!
In the more “subdued” part of the collection is this pair of Wissing 2635 eyeglasses, wish a nice, classic silhouette colored in beautifully with various shades of purple stripes. While this is on the softer side of the brand’s offerings, it’s still a great standout piece that’ll separate you from the crowd.
Are you brave enough to wear bright specs like these? Check out the collection on our site and let us know which frames you’d be bold enough to wear in the comments!
Our friend Laurence picked out a perfect pair of designer glasses. The color, the shape, everything about this frame looks fabulous on her! We love how the purple complements the shade of her hair with its red undertones, while the rectangular silhouette fits nicely with her angular features. The slight curves of the brow line are what gives this frame a nice balance as well.
The pair Laurence chose are Lafont Lin eyeglasses in color 744. What we really like about this color is that it’s dark, but not your typical dark pair of specs. Rather than going the typical route of black or brown, Lin gives you that same artsy/intelligent look in a whole new way. Did you notice the little design on the inner arm, too? Others might not see the pattern unless they look closely, but that’s why we like details like this, it feels like a personal touch only known to you and the designer.
Lin is also available in several other colors, including black with a brown inside pattern, navy blue with a pink inside pattern, brown with a green inside pattern, orange leopard print, and a black and pink pattern. The silhouette is a classic, with its rectangular lenses and top-set arms, so we’re leaning towards the more exciting colors to give the timeless shape a modern boost. What do you think, do you prefer classic colors or patterns and prints?
