Paris Eyewear Fashions

Paris Eyewear Fashions

What eyeglasses are fashion forward people wearing in Paris?

When our eye doctors visit "fashionable" places on their vacations, they always enjoy seeing what the optical boutiques are showcasing.  This summer, one of "The Docs" went to Paris, France and really enjoyed studying the optiques to see how our optical measured up to the highest fashion capital of the world.  Here is what he noted are trends that every optique promoted:
  • Heavy frames made from zyl (plastic)
  • Round frames in all sizes
  • Wood frames
  • Matte tortoise
  • Tortoise mixes with color, especially turquoise
  • Visible pins on the front of the frames
  • Classic 1950's looks
  • Combinations of zyl, metal, wood combined together
  • Lots of color with layers of color
  • Fabric covered frames like denim and velvet
Some very notable brands that were showcased in their windows, that we also carry, included:
  • Barton Perreira
  • Oliver Peoples
  • LaFont
  • Alain Mikli
  • Michael Kors
  • Ray-Ban
  • Oakley
When he got home and took stock of our optical to see how we could become more like the Parisian Optiques that he studied, The Doc discovered that our optical managers have stocked our Memphis optiques with the latest fashions and trends that are all over Paris!  So you don't have to hop on a plane to acquire stylish eyewear, just go to Memphis Family Vision or SEE Main Street and you will have plenty from which to chose!!
