The latest drop from the Vera Wang Eyewear, VWX segment exudes drama and intrigue with each piece. This grouping consists of 5 new styles that cover new design territory yet remain true to the codes of Vera’s aesthetic. Each frame has been tightly edited down to two colors, keeping the collection feeling exclusive and cohesive. Aviva, Ayanna, Taraji, Demitria, and Rabia are handmade in Japan. Aviva is a modern take on the flat-top sunglass. This shape is current and brings in new design elements to the collection. An extra large logo, engraved and filled with a pop of enamel, tops off the left temple and gives the piece a tactile feel. Ayanna  is cut from extra-thick acetate and tapers from thick to thin along the side view. The logo is placed in a much more conspicuous manner atop the brow over the bridge – out of plain sight, but in the perfect spot. Taraji is s flat- top frame  tapered into a cat-eye and the lenses are mounted via screws as they float out and away from the sides of the frame. The branding here is placed in a traditional size and setting on the temple, leaving all of the eccentric design elements focused on the front. Demetria is an aviator for everyday wear with nightlife appeal. Each lens is held in place with one screw and two prongs that have been reshaped into metal spikes, giving an edgy look to a traditional shape. A subtle logo is engraved on the flat metal brow bar. Eventually, Rabia is an aviator for the future. This almost weightless style is constructed of 2-base lenses mounted atop a half rim of stainless steel. With a minimal bridge-less design, the angular lens becomes the shape of the frame creating a sleek and modern look. Full stainless steel temples have the logo engraved on the side with a piece of crystal acetate layered on top.
