Get your party shades on with this season's latest funky framed eyewear that are both geometrically modern and retro

After Dior So Real sunglasses trailblazed the road to abstract and ultra modern frames, this season's obvious trend has to do with unusual frames of all sorts that are both retro-inspired and futuristic in structure. Jimmy Choo Nita in exotic leather sees their iconic butterfly frame reworked in the brand's signature snakeskin leather, whereas Marc by Marc Jacobs' 479/S sunglasses is a cutting-edge steel beauty with oversize hexagonal frame. Another standout pair is the Fendi Paradeyes—a "frame within a frame" concept while including geometric lines and cut-out volumes for a contrast between the flat round metal eyes and soft cat-eye shape.
