Trends: Negative space

Something we have seen repeatedly over the last period is the use of negative space, especially in high end designer frames. (Note; this means, eyewear created by a designer, not eyewear using a logo of a wellknown designer label). Negative space can be achieved by either creating empty areas, which are framed by material (mostly done with metal) or creating visual empty areas by using combinations of opaque and transparent materials (mostly done with plastics/aceteates). This architectural way of creating visual illusions through intricate cut outs add a flare of prestige to the frame design, without making it overly complicated and pulling away attention from the wearer’s indentity.
