Color Story: Ravishing Rouje
Crimson, maroon, garnet, and ruby are preparing for an impelling appearance once the leaves start changing colors this season. Even for those who opt for neutral shades, sometimes a little flush to an outfit can inspire you to switch up the norm and embrace the changing seasons. A subtle burst of color can make all the difference. Why not add a little fire to the traditional earthy tones we know and love?

Take it from Coco Chanel, an avid lover of the color red, who was quoted as saying, “Red is the color of life, of blood– I love red. It is a color that can be bright and aggressive and in its darker shades, it evokes elegance and willpower and can therefore be used on garments, accessories or directly on a woman's body in the form of lipstick or nail varnish.” We have the opinion that the right sunglasses can have the same effect– making you feel powerful and confident to take charge of your day. From our metallic red Emnitta 'Garnet' frames to our elevated rectangle Claire Rose 'Paris' frames, we have the perfect tone and design for every face shape. Let's take a look at some of the styles that will take over the upcoming season.
Angular with a mix of feminine and masculine, this deep red frame has been a cult classic for good reason! It's enough of a pop of color to add some intrigue to an outfit, but dark enough to stay demure and not look over the top.
This deep red wine frame pairs perfectly with a gradient lens to make this statement frame surprisingly classic and easy to style. Plus, it's available in three classic silhouettes (Le Chat, Le Carré, and Le Rond) to suit any face shape.
The bold and radiant red in our collection is created using crystal acetate to provide an almost stained glass-like effect. It's everything you'd want in a statement frame— sophisticated, eye-catching, and universally flattering.
Everyone needs a little retro moment in their sunglasses collection, and our Emna frames capture that classic '90s supermodel silhouette. A deep metallic rouge paired with a Garnet Charme for some extra positive energy will go a long way this season.
Looking through rose-tinted lenses always helps boost your energy and creativity when it comes to putting together outfits. What was once a poolside staple can now capture a whole new feel for the cooler seasons!
As the crisper weather moves in we have a warm, red spice tone that Autumn is famous for in a narrow, angular frame shape. This brownish burgundy hue features a berry gradient lens for just a hint of color that can be paired with any look from casual to evening.
