Press Release : Trendspotting Fall 2011 Retro Lovers Rejoice!

DALLAS, Texas — August 1, 2011 — This season brings fresh new looks, colors and updated interpretations of classic favorites. Whether you prefer soft sophisticated looks or bold modern chic, Goo Goo Eyes has you covered.

This fall brings back some of the most famous iconic looks from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. There’s a retro shape for everyone this season!

Steve McQueen’s folding Persol sunglasses are the “king of cool” today. Originally featured in the incredibly hot movie “The Thomas Crown Affair,” the folding Persol frames are just as sexy today. Although we personally prefer the remake with Pierce Brosnan, he, too, looks smoking hot in these sunglasses. Get your man a pair and live the fantasy.

Cat Eyes
Also this season, look for dramatic cat-eyes and funky round frames. From all of the major fashion designers, you’ll find frisky modified cat-eyes and delightfully fun round shapes.

Luxurious trims on temples are a bit more theatrical this season. You’ll find everything from leather to lace, studs, stones and crystals.

Romantic Encounters
Sheer lace fabrics for women need delicate frames. Soft gentle curves, translucent plastics and thin metals create the perfect soft romantic look. Some of the most striking frames feature lacey metal designs.

Stripes, plaids, florals and animal prints dominate this season’s palette. Nothing boring or stuffy here. These all shout, “Hey, look at me!”

Strong colors are everywhere. Bold brights and powerful shades of pale offer all sorts of options. It’s time to move beyond basic black and flirt with a little color. Who knows what might happen?

Urban Chic
Comfortable designs with clever technical innovation designed for business and pleasure are the new classics and must-haves. One of the freshest and chicest looks is in matt finish frames. Matt black is the go-to choice of all trend setters.
