Top 5 frame trends for 2015

We are now into the second quarter of 2015 and some frame trends are already taking shape. What do our trendy patients want for their eyewear this year? I’ll tell you!

#5. Mixing metal accents on thick plastic frames.

– Frames really are becoming a functional accessory for many people. And they want to embellish their look just like you might add a tassel to your bag or a bow tie to your button down. Here are a few Jason Wu frames that showcase this look.

#4. Patterns and prints.

– Some of these frame prints look like you are displaying a watercolor masterpiece on your face! If you have to wear glasses you might as well have fun with it, right?!!! These are the epitome of fun.

#3. Bright, fun colors.

– These have been popular for a couple of years now but the trend shows no signs of waning anytime soon. These frames are playful, happy and eye catching.

#2. Cutouts.

– Frame manufacturers are producing more and more of these feminine frames. Here is an up close look at the intricate filigree details.

And finally… #1. Eco-friendly frames.

– Some companies have become more environmentally conscious over the years (yay!) and that is translating into frames with a cause. Here we are showcasing two lines that follow this philosophy:

ECO (Earth-Conscious Optics) frames carry an UL Environment Validation certifying the products are made from a minimum of 95 percent recycled materials. Also, for each pair of frames or sunglasses sold, one tree is planted in partnership with Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization that has helped communities around the world plant trees since 1989. All eyewear packaging is made of recycled paper and includes a cotton pouch and mail-in recycling kit allowing customers to donate unwanted frames to charities in developing areas of the world.

Drift eyewear makes handcrafted frames in Chicago with responsibly sourced woods. The temples are made of sustainable hardwoods and the fronts made from a plastic derived from the wood pulping process and other components using FSC-certified hardwoods along with reclaimed timber. Their Delta Blues line is fashioned from cypress trees that were logged in Louisiana in 1904. Some of their recent designs are even crafted from retired skateboards!

Dear Patients,
There will be heavy construction immediately adjacent to our office for the next few months. The developers are consciously attempting to minimize the impact this has on our office; however, there will be road closures.
Currently, the easiest access to our office will be from the SOUTH. We recommend taking Indian School and turning north on 75th street. Our office is about a 1/2 mile up on your right. The spaces out in front of the office are first-come first-served or First Fidelity Bank has graciously allowed our patients to use the three spots in the back of their lot, closest to our office. If coming from Camelback road, please use North Civic Center Plaza to reach the parking lot of First Fidelity. Please see the map for walking directions from there.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this big change.
