It’s not a secret how much I love to collect eyewear. I consider it as one of my weaknesses. I don’t know why, but it’s probably the mystery it brings to the wearer. Plus, it’s a go-to fashion accessory on a lazy day. No need to conceal those eye bags if you had a late night. Just put on your huge sunnies and you’re instant glam! So when I got an invite for a press presentation of the luxury eyewear Fall Winter 2015 collections, no doubt I had to go – even if I would come straight from the airport (just arrived from a vacation that day).
I, together with Jackie Go of Go Jackie Go, checked out the latest eyewear for this season at Eye Society, the country’s premier eyewear boutique and home to the finest selection of globally celebrated eyewear brands such as Prada, Michael Kors, Versace, Ray-Ban, Miu Miu, and a lot more.
Luxury Eyewear Fall Winter 2015: Prada
Inspired by a return to nature and showcasing the utmost craftsmanship, this limited-edition collection marries contemporary design with black walnut and ebony Malabar wood in either round or square shapes. with the natural irregularity of the wood’s veining, each pair becomes a unique creation.
Prada’s famous baroque style in wood finish is surprisingly light! In the first photo above, Jackie’s wearing the wood finish, while I’m wearing the hand-stitched leather. Prada never disappoints.
Luxury Eyewear Fall Winter 2015: Versace
Edgy elegance and audacious originality describe this new collection inspired by the Queen of Pop and fashion icon, Madonna, who models for the glamorous brand for a third consecutive decade. Find feminine power in this selection of sunglasses and frames almost as seductive at Her Majesty.
The white is very Madonna, don’t you think? I feel it’s a classic, at the same time, very glam!
Luxury Eyewear Fall Winter 2015: Burberry
Inspired by the timelessness, craft and innovation of he brand’s Burberry trench coat fabric, Burberry Eyewear unveils its latest collection that embodies the effortless elegance and natural sophistication of the Burberry girl. The trench knot motif cast in gold or twisted gabardine temples add classic sophistication to each piece.
The detail of the temples is very unique. I’m actually liking the frames (since I think I need to wear eyeglasses soon).
Luxury Eyewear Fall Winter 2015: Dolce & Gabbana
Highlighting Spanish presence in Sicily, this limited-edition collection by Dolce & Gabbana incorporates the design of the peineta comb into its eyewear. Each pair reinterprets Sicilian Baroque craftsmanship and delicate openwork carvings into its design, offering something beautiful and unique.
Luxury Eyewear Fall Winter 2015: Miu Miu
Fashion-forward women looking for something distinctive will gravitate towards Miu Miu’s Wink and Noir collections. Continually young, upbeat and distinctively edgy, Noir offers a selection of round shapes while Wink goes off the beaten track in a geometric shape unseen anywhere else.
Can we now pass as Lady Gaga??? Haha! Miu Miu eyewear is really made for the fashionable women.
Luxury Eyewear Fall Winter 2015: Michael Kors
Relaunching in Manila is the Michael Kors line of eyewear that mimic elements from the designer’s runway collections. Find styles such as oversized cat eyes to sleek and modern aviators that offer a timeless yet modern aesthetic.
You have to see Michael Kors’ eyewear collection! I’m in love with the styles – classic, at the same time, modern.
Luxury Eyewear Fall Winter 2015: Ray-Ban

Ray-Ban: Bronze Aviator
Always a winner. It’s a new Bronze Age over at Ray-Ban, as this copper-colorer alloy joins the other precious metals used for some of the brand’s frames. The Bronze Aviator is given a sleek update in subdued, chic Bronze frames and fresh flash lens hues.

Ray-Ban: Made For Dreaming
The quirky Opal Erika is a no-brainer for individuals looking for a splash of color in their eyewear. With its bright rubber or classic nylon fronts in semi-round frames, oversized round shape and soft keyhole bridge, its uniqueness adds a playful twist to any look.
Ray-Ban: Tried. Tested. True.
A vintage brand, Ray-Ban is as current today as much as it was in 1937. To celebrate, the tried, tested and true, the brand introduces its Distressed Special Edition line of eyewear for those who love having a sense of history with their belongings. The Iconic Aviators and Wayfarers go through a new process to make them appear as if they were passed down from generations. Treated with a special “worn effect” of special markings, each pair of Aviator Distressed and Original Wayferer Distressed becomes a unique expression style.
Check out the worn effect of the Wayferer and Aviator below. The Aviators look exactly the same as the vintage pair of Ray-Ban my dad gave me!
Ray-Ban: Break The Mold
The Modern Round collection includes Round Metal, Round Camouflage, Round Fleck, Round Youngster and frames Round Highstreet. First launched in the 1960’s and inspired by the era’s counterculture, the Round was made even more famous by music legend John Lennon. This universally flattering shape now comes with new lens treatments and frame materials aside from the original metal.
For the first time ever, the timeless icon Clubmaster is treated with this simple material for a classic yet modern look. It comes in three varieties: Walnut, Maple, or Cherry, each with different colored rubber inside. The frames are treated then lined for the utmost in comfort, flexibility and durability.
The wood Clubmaster is probably my favorite from this collection. What do you think? 😉
