Page 53 of 99 VCPN 52 September 2017 By Joy L. Gibb, ABOC e town of Palm Beach, FL, was instrumental in shaping Lilly Pu- litzer's design career—she was liv- ing there year-round and needed a frock that would be comfortable, stylish and casual enough for day- time but could be dressed up for evening. So Pulitzer created the shi dress with slits on the side, and in doing so, she wound up starting a new genre of fashion, American Resort Wear. Her clothes showcase fun, playful and feminine shapes in custom colors and patterns. Ac- cording to Lilly, "Anything is possi- ble with sunshine and a little pink." ose design elements carry over to the Lilly Pulitzer eyewear by Kenmark Eyewear for both women and girls. e multi-gen- erational styles will appeal to young women 15-29 and women 30-55+ while the Lilly Girls line targets ages 6-14. For fall/winter '17, there are six new ophthalmics for wom- en. e Ashby is a chic clubmas- ter-inspired model with cutaway, epoxy-filled detailing and the signature gold logo on the tem- ples. Color options comprise blue marble, tortoise mandarin and tortoise pearl. If a wearer is look- ing for a modified chic cat eye, consider Sydney, which comes in amber, green havana and navy havana and offers playful and colorful patterns on the insides of the temple. It's a particularly great frame for the smaller lady or tween, and it's available in eyesizes of 49 and 51. Carlton is also a pe- tite fit, in a trendy round style. e full-rimmed Bailey and Blythe, which feature a keyhole bridge and a bit of pizazz in berry with a crystal front and gold temples or blue, with a navy front and silver front, suit more average or slightly larger faces. For girls, the four new styles comprise Fanning (round, over- sized); Brit, a rectangular cat eye; Livie, a super fun style in bright tortoises such as aqua and ocean; and Opal, a chic look with enam- el-filled metal detailing in awe- some colors of cherry granite, navy granite and aqua granite.
