of the collection, Kym Ellery said, “Eyewear is not just one of the finishing touches to your overall look, it can be a statement piece that you can build an outfit around.
“Each piece in my new collection tells a story and offers a versatility suited for a range of occasions from a daytime event, to an evening soirée.”
New Alex Perry Eyewear
Alex Perry’s new 12 piece eyewear collection for women is inspired by current trends as well as old-world Hollywood glamour.
Modern, elegant and sophisticated, the collection is made up of eight optical and four prescription sunglasses styles, each featuring defined and structured silhouettes.
Stylistic features include twisted temples, brushed metals and Swarovski crystal accents that subtly catch the eye and the light.
Soft colour palettes of rose-pink, smoky pale blue and nude have been paired with translucent crystal acetate and when juxtaposed against bold silhouettes, the frames are strong and feminine.
A deeper colour palette of navy blue, shiny black and rich purple tones has also been used, with many of the frames embossed with gold-metal detailing enhanced by Swarovski crystals.
“Frames in the collection are versatile, offering understated sophistication for everyday wear, through to stand out pieces for exotic summer holidays or a glamourous event,” said Alex Perry of his latest release.
Perry’s new prescription sunglass collection for men presents contemporary updates to classic styles such as the Aviator, Clubmaster and a bold oversized frame. Standout features in the collection include a heavy tortoiseshell brow bar, gold rims encased within an acetate chassis, along with satin gold metal temples that glint in the light. The colour palette comprises khaki, gold, tortoiseshell and black.
Speaking of the four prescription sunglasses for men he designed, Perry said, “When I’m designing for men, it’s a completely diﬀerent process – I’m thinking about what stands out as an interesting shape that I would wear myself and would that style make a solid addition to my wardrobe.”
Commenting on the design inspiration, he said, “My designs are inspired by my surroundings – my travels, the sights and the various people I meet along the way. I really enjoy speaking with glasses wearers to find out exactly what they are looking for in a frame… I’m always looking to push the boundaries to see what I can do next in the eyewear space.”
