Vibrant. Effervescent. Flamboyant. Dazzling. Vivid.
Just some of the words that come to mind when thinking about the influence of colour. They have the power to affect our moods, change our body temperature, and alter the way we see the world. Even Kendall Jenner subscribes this theory (ahem, she painted her dining room millennial pink in an effort to banish sugar cravings).
It’s true, blues make us feel colder, oranges warmer, yellows happier, and greens calmer.
So, with this in mind, we challenged our ‘dream team’ to come together on one of our boldest shoots yet, and showcase how they inject their own interpretation of colour on a blank canvas. Viewed through Guy Coombe’s lens, impeccably styled by Remix fashion editor Laura Snelling, vibrantly painted by M.A.C’s Lochie Stonehouse, and dressed by Federation’s Jenny Joblin, the result was nothing short of spectacular.
Cue crimson-hued lighting, eclectic, high-shine styling, and a bold beauty look that packed a real punch.
Each look was beautifully offset by a pair of OPSM’s AW17 styles, ranging from pretty pink Miu-Miu’s through to the 90’s throwback Sferoflex’s that model Bianca couldn’t bear to take off.
Gone are the days of glasses being prescription only, with many of the fashion pack and Hollywood IT crowd opting to wear these as the ultimate finishing touch to their off-duty look.
The sloped, cat-eye styling of pairs attributed to both Vogue and Prada signify the right way to nail sophisticated chic.
A throwback at its finest, double-bridged styles are everywhere this autumn. Seen first on Gigi Hadid, this is one style we’re predicting will be huge for seasons to come. Sferoflex have got this look downpat.
The right balance of delicate and geek-chic, consider wired frames your new go-to for total versatility across a range of ensembles. We won’t be taking these Miu Miu’s off all season long.
Synonymous with timelessness, Ray-Ban’s rounded silhouettes channel the inner hipster inside all of us. Don’t deny it – we know it’s there.
Available in every colour of the rainbow, be a little daring this autumn by opting for a coloured pair that make your eyes really pop. Our pick? This purple Vogue pair is equal parts playful and super chic.
Traditionalists will obsess over retro-styling, with the likes of Armani and Versace reviving the popular shapes from yester-year.
Having trouble deciding? We did too. Which is why we grabbed 16 of our favourite pairs and had a play with every style, shape, silhouette and colour at our recent shoot.
But what you may not know is, even if you don't wear prescription lenses, your eyes are at risk. Due to the tech-centric lives we lead, the harmful blue light projected from our laptop screens and devices are damaging to your peepers. Thankfully, OPSM have a new lens range out called BlueGuard, which protect your eyes from the harmful blue light projected from our screens. Especially good if, like us, your phone is basically an extension of your arm...
