Prada is an expression of superior and unquestionable style in the fashion industry. These eyeglasses have an elegant frame, rectangular in shape making it ideal for an array of face shapes.

The Lindberg eyeglasses speak volumes about the great art put in to manufacture these designer glasses. Though manufactured from titanium and acetate, they are lightweight. These glasses are probably the only eyeglasses that do no utilize screws, rivets and welds to hold the glasses together. They are so uniquely designed that they do not require these additional details; screws and welds. Lindberg’s frames come in a range of shapes. They can be rectangular, round or oval. Lindberg glasses have a thin frame.

Founded in 1921, Gucci now seems to have landed its feet in the field of thriving eyewear firms. They too are unisex. A pair of Gucci eyeglasses can be blue, black or golden just to mention a few.
