Retro vibe

The retro vibe this summer goes beyond just the cat-eye silhouette of the 1950s or the aviators of the ’80s. This retro trend is all about the double wire rims, as shown by Emporio Armani, Michael Kors, and Phillip Lim.

 The MIDO Eyewear Show in Milan is the world’s largest optical and sunglass exhibition, showcasing the best of Italian-made eyewear. The president of MIDO, Cirillo Marcolin — whose namesake company, Marcolin, is one of the world’s leading eyewear groups — underscores the term “made in Italy” and its reputation for excellence.

MIDO is where international players, small artisans, avant-garde companies, and young designers come together to talk about eyewear, discuss new technology and research, and find out about market trends. And clearly, Americans favor European style: In 2016, U.S. consumers bought more than 30 percent of the sunglasses exported from Europe. Now, that’s a lot of shade to throw around!

So here are the five hottest sunglass trends for this summer. Be warned — they’re colorful and bold!
