You don’t have to follow trends or be well versed in clothing history to see that 1990s style is influencing today’s looks in a big way. From baggy jeans and spaghetti straps to bucket hats and minimalist sunglasses, everything we loved about the decade’s effortless chic attitude is back, and all over our social media. Now, three decades later, the brand that defined the era and brought us some of the most memorable and groundbreaking fashion moments of all time is back. This summer, Calvin Klein is tapping into its archives for an anniversary eyewear collection that channels the spirit of ’90s minimalism with absolute perfection.
Inspired by the round frames and colored lens style icons sported on the red carpet and off-duty, the capsule features three gender-neutral styles for optical and sun. But make no mistake, these classic silhouettes aren’t your standard reissue. Available in a range of nostalgic frame and lens colors, the collection is brand new. The frames take craftsmanship to a whole new level and are sculpted from premium Japanese titanium and include raised details like pearl-effect nose pads and refined detailing on the bridge and temples.
With a new generation of fashion designers embracing the retro aesthetic, Calvin Klein’s ’90s frames are already on their way to becoming summer’s standout sunglasses. Recording artist and photographer Nisa Jones recently styled her frames with wide leg jeans and an oversized summer sweater for a look that maximizes effortless cool. But she’s not the only one channeling the vibe. Shay Sweeney, founder of Houston-based studio Sweenshots, paired her frames with the brand’s signature white Calvin Klein t-shirt, a look that proves the best way to channel ’90s style is to go all out.
