They say eyes are the windows to the soul and this season, designers are embracing the trend of baring it all. Do you have tired, fatigued eyes and want to cover up those *designer* bags under them? Sorry fellas, this year’s Milan Fashion Week Men’s showed us that we can no longer hide behind our sunglasses. The latest trend to emerge from the catwalk? Smoky transparent eyewear!

This upcoming autumn/winter season will surely be full of stand-out shades. Glasses coming in distinctive types of colors and silhouettes dominated the runway at the Milanese shows. From lens shades ranging from sunset orange and candy apple red, to cool tone greys and even iridescent options, there’s no better time to adopt the latest trend in eyewear.


Discover our top picks for this emerging trend, straight from the runway shows that closed MFW just a few hours ago: 


Ermenegildo Zegna F/W 2020

Ermenegildo Zegna’s F/W 2020 show highlighted varying shades of cobalt, ultramarine and cerulean and the accessories were no exception. These rounded aviator shades featured a black-trimmed frame for definition and coral lenses for a pop of color were a refreshing contrast to the sea of blue that floated down the runway.

Dsquared2 F/W 2020

As part of Dsquared2’s celebratory collection for their 25th anniversary, these classic black teardrop aviators with a vibrant transparent red lens were representative of the aesthetic of the dynamic design duo.

Fendi F/W 2020

For Silvia Venturini Fendi’s latest menswear collection, utilitarianism silhouettes were merged with a cyber aesthetic. The glasses showed above feature a minimalistic design, with little to no frame in silver-tone metal to support the nearly transparent and iridescent lenses.

Tom Ford F/W 2020

American designer, Tom Ford brings his classic aviators back in an energetic hue to compliment the candy-colored vibrancy of the collection.

Prada F/W 2020

A hybrid of the past and present, these Prada sunglasses combine the trends of today with a modern rectangular frame with a nod to the past, infusing a warm tone smokey lens for contrast.

Gucci F/W 2020

For this autumn/winter collection, Alessandro Michele mixed in some influences of womenswear, complimenting the fluidity of the label. A nod to Twiggy, these glossy black rounded shades feature a neon orange lens that offsets a traditional masculine ensemble.

Emporio Armani F/W 2020

For Emporio Armani’s latest collection, asymmetrical sunglasses were the star accessory shown throughout the show. These ultra-thin glasses feature a metal frame supporting a bright red lens that gives off a Matrix vibe with an unexpected twist.
