If you're a fan of Geordi La Forge's infamous visor from 'Star Trek,' you'll immediately love 'Virna' by Justin Lopez. This model is rocking blinged bangle eyewear that channels that classic visor, but with a modern couture update. Ferocious!

I can't get enough of futuristic eyewear. From Beyonce's tasseled shades to the avant-garde quilted eyewear Rihanna rocked, there are plenty of similarly-themed shades below.

Implications - The fashion industry often stresses style innovation over pragmatic functionality, but it definitely generates interest amongst consumers and the general public. This is because the novelties of these products demonstrate a company's understanding of the consumer's insatiable thirst for the new and eclectic. Marketers looking to learn from this pattern may consider outlandish gimmicks to draw the attention of potential clients.
