08 Jul The Koali collection at the heart of this summer’s trends
Presented at MIDO 2019, Morel’s new Koali collection is original and refined.
It’s frames’ intriguing shapes play on optical illusion, using “two-in-one” shapes – the first one is round, topped by the second, bolder and more original shape.
The secret is in the detail. Our designers have left nothing to chance, with different matte, satin or glossy finishes that will attract attention to the eyes, reminiscent of a sophisticated use of eyeliner.
The frame “converts” as the light plays on it, with the glossy part brightening up and adding an extra touch to the glasses.
This “double” frame’s slim, elegant features help women to make daring color choices, such as gold, bare pink or red, but also to choose more definite shapes such as cat’s-eye.
This “chameleon” collection adjusts to any type of style, including rock, dressy, or, especially, streetwear.
The frame joins up with makeup and jewels to add radiance and emphasize a part of the face.
Every style will be at ease in this collection, which is both feminine and trendy and in the creative spirit.
One of the other major trends these last few summer seasons has been the return of natural materials: with linen and wicker, light shades of beige and terracotta are everywhere.
Wicker is particularly strong this summer, seen in baskets or shoes, belts or even jewelry. It’s the “in” material.
For a chic, relaxed, bohemian look, mix ultra-trendy summer wear such as a short playsuit in white linen, the trendy wickerwork basket and a pair of mules, which are a must this season, all of this brightened up with a gold Morel frame from the Koali collection, lending a touch of elegance and brightening up the outfit.
They say that fashion is always starting over. It’s even more true today as the nineties return in force. From streetwear to branded items and the iconic bag models of the 2000s, it’s all remixed to suit today’s tastes, with just a little more elegance and femininity.
Sneakers with gigantic soles are on all the catwalks, along with baggy trousers, belt bags and lots of other keynote items from the nineties. Eyeglasses with metal frames and small, distinctive shapes are also making a comeback, and Morel is highly delighted about this.
The young lady of the nineties has grown up. Today she’s a more sophisticated woman.
A pair of “Mum’s” jeans with a white blouse knotted in front for a casual look are her favorites. She brightens it up with striking accessories such as a pair of “Dad’s” shoes and a branded pale pink handbag, two trailblazing items for transforming her streetwear look. And to top everything to make her look feminine and highlight her eyes, she wears her Morel glasses from the Koali collection in pale pink to match her handbag.
Also mixing with the comeback of the nineties and natural materials are satin and a lingerie style this season. This is particularly noticeable in the Valentino and Zadig & Voltaire collections, but also recognized bloggers like Chiara Ferragni.
The ever-present black dress is there too, for a perfect, trendy summer evening look. Wear it long in satin with nightdress-style fine straps and lace and studded sandals as attractive accessories, gold rings and a mini Saddle bag from Dior – an iconic 2000s model that is also making a great comeback. And to make sure that you’re chic and golden right up to the eyes, Koali’s black and gold frame, which is all you need as eye makeup.
The new Koali collection’s range of colors and different shapes easily combines with the trendiest looks, giving them that extra something.
Knowing just how far to go is part of Morel’s know-how. This ability to be always up to date and original at one and the same time without ever going overboard clearly makes it THE leading eyeglasses maker.
This collection’s great strength is its design, created for women by a woman who understands their expectations.
