Makers of sunglasses use bright hues in classic, retro shapes


Sheer, ombre colors are preferred for the latest aviator and cat-eye shades.



  • Playful colors: Suppliers will be incorporating vivid hues, including sapphire blue, rose red, turquoise, orange and yellow, in both lenses and frames. These will be rendered in gradient and translucent tones. Makers will also offer completely clear borders.
  • Popular shapes: Although classic aviator and sports pairs will continue to be available, suppliers will offer more cat-eye models in the months ahead. The feminine design creates the illusion of a slim jawline and complements the emerging revival of 1950s garment styles.
  • Trimmings: To add value, gold- and silver-plated metal ornaments with carved and cutout patterns are attached to the frame and temples. Crystals, rhinestones and rivets are embedded as well.
  • Price forecast: In the next six months, export quotes may increase by 3 to 5 percent due to the yuan’s appreciation and higher labor costs.
  • Sales outlook: Businesses expect overseas revenue to stay the same this year as global demand weakens.
