Fashion Week Autumn/ Winter 2023

Fashion week (or really it is fashion month more like because it goes on for 4 weeks in different cities) is coming to an end.  As always, my love for fashion always keeps me curious to see what is happening and of course, to spot eyewear trends. I have scanned through most of the shows and I looked through different images from different sites to gauge what I think the upcoming trends for eyewear are.

Just incase any readers don’t understand how the fashion week season works, here is a quick explanation. The shows that just happened are all Autumn/ Winter 2023 so it is showing what is coming in for Autumn. It may sound confusing but basically fashion seasons are always one season ahead. So the Spring/Summer 2023 would have been shown back in September 2022.

The 3 trends I spotted were Colossal, Matching Tint and Space Odyssey.

Eyewear Trend – Colossal

Think big but it is probably still not big enough, so think even bigger. That is the vibe here with colossal. It works well with any shape you can think of. The colour of the frame (and lenses) is dark, dark and darker. Almost have that mysterious feeling. It is definitely a trend that works best with sunglasses styles, with optical you can only go to a certain size before the complexity of putting in prescription lenses comes into play.

Eyewear Trend – Matching Tint

This trend is actually a trend I also spotted during all the optical shows I attended over the past 2 months. It is basically tinted lens that matches the frame so they almost look part of the frame. This trend again works best with sunglasses styles. During the different optical shows, I have seen them coming in all shapes and sizes, there is something for everyone.

Eyewear Trend – Space Odyssey

The final prominent trend I spotted down the catwalk is the space/ futuristic look. The shapes tend to be smaller and thinner. It almost looks like it just about covers the eye area, however, the shape is more drastic to add drama for the wearer.

Here are the three trends spotted by MGAM during fashion month, what do you think of the trends? Which one do you think you may want to get onboard with? I think I’d like to give the Space Odyssey a try, looks fun and wild. hehe!
