Our top 3 bold and beautiful frames

Since niche eyewear first graced the catwalks, classic styles such as browline, horn-rimmed and wayfarer have become elegant staples with evergreen appeal.

But when every Tom, Dick and Debbie sports the most popular picks, it becomes increasingly difficult to look unique.

Distinctive frames are much more than visual aids and humble accessories — they elevate elegance, supercharge confidence and transform you into a couture chameleon.

Finding the perfect frames can be time-consuming and complex, so we’re giving you a head start in the style stakes by picking our top three bold and beautiful designs.


Moleskine notebooks and planners are masterpieces of subtle yet sophisticated design and essential accessories for anyone with impeccable taste.

And the new Moleskine Eyewear range is imbued with the same style sensibilities. Handmade in Italy with sleek stainless steel and acetate construction, they’re 40 per cent lighter than other frames.

Retro curves and striking black, metal and tortoiseshell finishes seamlessly blend timeless and contemporary elements — pop instore to peruse them soon.

Ray-Ban — Erika Optics

For those that wish to make a more overt statement with their frames, the Erika Optics collection from Ray-Ban is the perfect place to begin.

Their translucent rounded front provides ample face coverage — while the solid blue of the arm adds a delightful dash of design savvy that really sets these frames apart from the crowd.

With a multitude of colour combinations available in this collection, you’re sure to find a pair that are perfect for you.

Tom Davies — Men’s

The Tom Davies TDH032 single layer round-horn glasses are the epitome of masculine elegance. Although they’re the style equivalent of a subtle whisper, they speak volumes about the terrific taste of the gentleman wearing them.

When you want to project an air of cool confidence and composure, these frames fit the bill perfectly.

And because they’re handcrafted, you’ll struggle to find a more comfortable fit or superior quality.

This eclectic triad features frames that are bold and beautiful in delightfully diverse ways —perfect for those who dare to be different.
