These Retro Eyewear Designs Fuse Jewelry with Vintage

Australian companies Pared and POMS recently teamed up to produce an exclusive line of retro eyewear. These two labels are inspired by vibrant colors and patterns from Turkey, fusing two distinct styles into one magnificent form.

Pared is an eyeglass label, while POMS is actually a jewelry brand; so in this collaboration we witness two retailers stepping out of their comfort zones. The sunglasses feature rare patterns and prints that are not common in eyewear design today. We see alternative adaptations of tortoise patterns and retro styles fused with simple geometric forms.

The collection is elegant, stylish and completely different, inspired by foreign cultures and familiar icons. You can see the influence of jewelry in the collection through bedazzled frames as well.
