Elemental Panache

Drawing inspiration from the hues, textures and materials of the great outdoors, autumn’s batch of frames take a walk on the wild side. Color is key when it comes to this trend, with men and women alike seeing earthy tones – like aqua and sky blues; seafoam, grassy and olive greens; citrus oranges; mustard yellows; coffee ambers; and chocolate browns – reigning supreme. True and faux wood elements make surprise appearances, while striated, watercolor, leafy and camouflage prints are reminiscent of rudiments of Earth’s enthralling landscape. Men especially enjoy clip-on lenses, keyhole bridges and industrial accents, while gals experiment with smooth and raised surfaces, ombre effects and categorically femme silhouettes.
