I think it is safe to say all the fashion weeks around all the fashion capitals are now pretty much over for another season. I of course covered London Fashion Week but a source has told me during New York Fashion Week Bevel eyewear (the ones Matt Damon likes – remember?) were used as a key styling piece for the Sergio Davila presentation during New York Fashion Week .
Sergio Davila is native to Peru and one of the rising stars in menswear but in 2010 he also branched out to womenswear but one of the most exciting things for me is that for this season during New York Fashion Week is he decided to use Bevel Eyewear as one of the key styling pieces for his SS14 collection presentation.
For SS14 Sergio’s collection was all about 20’s deco, Havana and Buenos Aires inspired and Stylist Gino Tavernaro, turned to Bevel Eyewear as the go-to-styling piece completing Sergio Davila’s simplistic yet timeless looks with a vintage feel. It is great to see designers and stylists starting to use eyewear more and more to compliment an outfit rather than seeing them just as a medical necessity.
Of course we saw something similar during London Fashion Week when Osiris Eyewear exhibited. Eyewear wearers and eyewear lovers we have come a long way but this gap between eyewear and fashion is slowly but surely closing up and maybe one day soon us lot in UK will be much more daring with our eyewear and less reserved.
