We come in all shapes and sizes. That's the kind of message Boucheron is getting across with the launch of its fall/winter eyewear collection, which comes in a variety of geometric shapes and design motifs. Across the Serpent Bohème Couleur selection, you will notice (almost instantly) an unorthodox set of eyewear pieces. Moon-shaped, rectangular, armored, aviator, you name it. All of them will guarantee you standing out amongst the crowd and raising some eyebrows along the way. But not to worry, because just to rub it in even more, located on the temple of each piece of eyewear is a serpent head paired with jewel-toned lenses, composed entirely of snakeskin texture. Along with the capped gold finishes and tonal acetates, plus an extensive set of colours inspired by vintage gems (ruby, sapphire, emerald), you'll be feeling good about the multitude of options you have to go with the structure of your face and the colour of your outfit. Outside of its aesthetic, the Boucheron collection provides great comfort as well, thanks to the well-cushioned nose pads tucked neatly underneath the lenses. And, with the anti-reflective and oelophobic lenses attached, it'll let you see better whether you're under the glaring sun or sitting outside on the restaurant patio. Either way, the Boucheron collection stays flexible.
