Designer Profile: Ernest Hemingway Collection10:38 PM
|Ernest Hemingway sporting the "old reliable" metal rim frame|
There were some highlights to the collection, which focused on thick rim zyl frames in tortoise shell schemes. Nothing like the glasses Mr. Hemingway was sporting in his days (thank goodness). For the bookish, geek chic trend, this line offers a lot of options!
|Popular black and white combo that fashion forward men are daring to try these days|
|Round frames are difficult for men to wear, but there is also a women's line with the collection offering more delicate options in the same dark/tortoise color family|
|And you can get them in sunglasses!|
They are really capitalizing on the geek chic trend with their offerings, and I was kind of hoping for something more offbeat (especially in their women's collection). Something more like we would find Lady Brett wearing in The Sun Also Rises, for example. But maybe I'm just too obsessed with color right now to be a good judge.
|The Sun Also Rises was originally published as Fiesta. Who knew?|
