Ray Ban Jackie Ohh Ladies Fashion Sunglasses Review
Ray Ban Jackie Ohh
Ray Ban Jackie Ohh sunglasses enter high fashion design with confidence and grace: the couture, Italian inspired lines of the luxurious frame echoes eyewear offered by Prada, Versace, and Gucci. Interestingly, the direction taken in this collection is not characteristic of the American brand – it is the classic Aviator and Wayfarer that are known to represent the company as eclectic, casual, and casual-sports sun protective spectacle.
On the other hand, dressy styling is not alien to Ray Ban. Wayfarer introduced a fashion model, Shield, which imitates a wraparound oversized design favoured by celebrities, and Fast&Furious collection consists of a range of elegantly shaped sunglasses that once again echo Italian origins.
Jackie Ohh comprises three lines, all of which customize the familiar bug-eye layout with oversized lenses and fitting sumptuous frames, creating visually exciting, imbalanced, artistic combinations that ooze character. Colors that complement the form: violet, light brown (close to orange), red crystal, sand tortoise, honey light, Havana, black, and several gradient variations where one hue transforms into another.
This model in the collection opts for a relatively tame, size-wise, template: familiar trapezoid lenses, encompassed by a generous frame.
Broad temples will remain the same in the next installation, and change to a thinner configuration in the next after that. This variation can function as casual sunglasses without raising too many eyebrows.
Jackie Ohh II
A sharp turn towards high fashion, where convenience is seemingly sacrificed on the altar of beauty. Oversized, notably so, these shades demand attention unreservedly, and with unapologetic aplomb (the following category tones down this expressive quality). Light yellows and browns – a common color in this design – also assist in managing the powerful individualistic effect.
Jackie Ohh III
Here Ray Ban draw ideas from sports – the pattern described by these sunglasses resemble, if only conceptually, those contoured by professional goggles. The capricious bug-eye expression of the previous line is gone, and gives way to a softer, more delicate appearance, accentuated by thinner temples.
