2021 has brought an array of different glasses materials being used and shapes and sizes, we have seen new shapes being added to glasses collection and the designers having fun with the shapes, whilst having neutral colours and really beautiful metal finishes, including rose gold and copper finishes.

Oversized shapes

We have been loving the oversized glasses, we saw this style as a trend in 2020 and it will continue to grow. The oversize glasses and sunglasses are a real statement and having them in neutral colours, like rich browns really enhances the look. The oversized glasses have also been designed with chunky shapes, to really make a wow factor.

Here at Designer Glasses Boutique we love the Tom Ford Fausto TF5634-B glasses, these have an oversized shape and really chunky sides, these glasses are not for the faint hearted.

Octagonal and hexagonal shapes

The new shape that is increasing in popularity is the octagonal and hexagonal shape, these shapes give a fun finish and make a real statement piece. The octagonal shape can be seen in metal and acetate glasses, we are seeing more and more of this shape within the 2021 collections.   The octagonal and hexagonal shapes take their inspiration from 70s styles, we have seen these shapes take the limelight in both the glasses and sunglasses collections.

Shown here is the Ray Ban Britt RX5472 glasses, the geometric shapes add a real style statement, the Britt glasses also come in pastel transparent colours, which is another 2021 eyewear trend

We also love the brand new Persol PO3254V glasses, they have the traditional Persol styling but with the contemporary hexagonal shape.


Filigree detailing

Filigree metal glasses is a continuing trend for 2021, we have seen metal glasses increasing in popularity over the past few years. We are loving the finer detaining and beautiful finishes that the filigree glasses give to us. With many different shapes and styles, there is sure to be something to suit everyone. We are loving the enchanting butterfly shape that gives a beautiful feminine finish.

The Oliver Peoples TK1 has custom Takumi filigree detailing on the exterior and interior bridge and the tips of the beautiful glasses.  The filigree has a coin edge design on the eyewire.

The Oliver Peoples Takumi 1 (TK1) is a titanium glasses collection and has the most exquisite attention to detail.


Transparent hue

Colour tones, within 2021 we have seen the rises of softer shades, transparent finishes with warm grey and nude colours, whilst in previous years we have had completely transparent colours, this year sees a softer finish with a light colour seen throughout the transparent frames to give a warmer finish.

The Oakley Pitchman R OX8105 is a popular glasses collection from Oakley, they have introduced the new grey smoke colour, which has a grey colour but a stunning transparent finish.
