Tom Ford brings us back in time, as the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2018-2019 Eyewear Collection draws inspirations from the vintage trends of yesteryear. It’s hard to imagine the amount of attention to detail required in perfecting the abundance of details and contrasting materials needed in perfecting this collection, but trust in Tom Ford to deliver the absolute in terms of quality.
The collection consists of vintage inspired sunglasses and eyeglasses sporting large shapes and extra thick rims, particularly in the lower front. The collection also manages to strike a fine balance in combining minimalism with a wealth of details, as sophisticated side and front spoilers are also added to pieces in the collection.
Besides that, thin acetates are also used to enhance the pieces in the collection. For the curious, acetate is a lightweight and strong plastic made from a renewable resource. A result of cutting, forming and polishing sheets of plastic, acetate is the highest quality plastic material for eyeglasses.
