After the return of the glasses inspired by that iconic model popularized by Kurt Cobain in 1993 with regard to his last photo session before committing suicide, the lenses come in a futuristic style. A trend already predicted by Alessandro Dell’Acqua in Rochas last autumn, or Rihanna, at the time of his first collaboration with Dior, when among his proposals included a metallic design with colored crystals inspired by Star Trek . Months later the singer perpetuated the fashion of science fiction glasses on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. He did it when he went to the premiere of Okjawith a Haute Couture dress signed by Maria Grazia Chiuri (Dior), topped by peculiar glasses of the Austrian brand Andy Wolf – whose most famous design is inspired by the Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa – who remembered very specifically the pair worn by Los Gemelos in the sequel to The Matrix.
The same, precisely, that these days I have been wearing Kendall Jenner through the streets of Paris between parade and Haute Couture parade. Square, oval, hexagonal or slightly cat-eye, the common denominator of the formula of the moment for specialized firms such as Le Specs or designers like Demna Gvasalia and Stella McCartney seems to be a lens as narrow as possible, as if it had shrunk.
So he conceives his star glasses for the next fall-winter 2017 Balenciaga. A proposal that paraded on the Parisian catwalk last September and we have seen on the street by the hand of Gilda Ambrosio and other prescribers of style. His more or less affordable alternative is found in one of the best-selling clothes of Jenner, Kendall + Kylie: The Vivian have been exhausted for weeks on their website, the same thing that is expected to happen with the collaboration between Kylie and the Australian Quay, which also has several models of small frames like, back to “Matrix”, Ray-Ban, that has made Neo’s glasses a classic. Also Thom Browne and Gucci, who this season revisit their models Morpheus and Seraph. The cinematic dynamic of cult films as inspiration is also repeated with Adam Selman’s collection for Le Specs. His designs inspired by films like Lolita or El Fugitivo have caused a furor after becoming the essential accessory of the sisters Hadid, Sofia Richie and Leandra Medine.
