BEC + BRIDGE X PARED - PETITE AMOUR
Bec + Bridge in collaboration with Pared Eyewear presents ‘Petite Amour’, a covetable edit of seven statement making frames in varying lens hues, injected with the French insouciance of the Resort 2018 collection.
The result is a slick, modern cats eye shape with wide arm detailing and is the perfect accoutrement to Summer.
Creative Director Sam Stevenson worked with the Bec + Bridge team collaboratively on the collection of handcrafted frames, which debuted on the runway during Australian Fashion Week in May 2017. The capsule perfectly reflects the attitude and energy of the spirited Bec + Bridge girl.
