Here is a beautiful solution – the Fendi 941R. The deep, shiny merlot color works well with almost all complexions, complements a vast palette of clothing colors, and – while a fall favorite – works well in all seasons. The shape is a version of a term I coined – an Extreme Feminized Pillowed Rectangle. It has classic rectangle proportions, but sports a nicely shaped arch over the eyebrow, very soft corners, and a flattering lift at the outside edges. Not groundbreaking, but very wearable from casual to dressy.
The wide temples of traditional zyl have been very much in vogue, but many patients complain that they restrict their peripheral vision to the point to where they feel unsafe wearing them. Fendi beautifully solves this fashion dilemma by using a slightly asymmetric open metal box as the frame end piece. Besides adding a touch of elegance, it opens up the sight lines, virtually eliminating the blind spot previously caused by the extra-wide temples.
Speaking of temples, here is where the Fendi 941R really takes the spotlight. A perfectly sized metal plaque of gold on black subtlety and tastefully showcases the inversely mirrored Fendi “F” and should not be a stumbling block for the logo adverse. The piece de resistance are four square cut crystals a few shades lighter than the surrounding zyl. Maybe you've been shying away from bling, not wanting to appear ostentatious; if so, the restrained dazzle of these crystals is exactly what you've been looking for. Not too over-the-top for daytime, not too drab for that gala event.
So what are you waiting for? Run out right quick and order yourself that new pair of glasses to brighten up your holiday season!
