New Kate Young Eyewear For Spring 2016

As stylist to some of the most fashionable stars in Hollywood, Kate Young is renowned for bringing tomorrow’s styles to life on the red carpet. As consultant to top magazine editors and fashion designers, she not only helps define what’s now — she predicts what’s next. It only makes sense that Kate Young would turn to Tura, the originator of eyewear as a fashion accessory, to help translate her visionary styling into optical fashion.

The Kate Young for Tura 2016 eyewear collection continues to fuse retro styling with Hollywood glamour. Luxurious modern details are seen throughout the frames, including leather wrapped rims, metal hardware accents, and a retro clip- on. While each frame is superior in quality and construction, Kate’s overall desire was to keep it simple, clean and modern. Kate’s love of neutral colors is further explored through an earthy palette featuring rich tortoises, ambers, and olive greens. These earthy colors are complimented by blacks, crystal, and white to keep the palette fresh. She developed a range of classic shapes with a modern twist that exude her own personal style. This collection further evolves the design language she established in her 2015 launch collection. Her subtle, sophisticated, modern taste continues to define her collection.
