Road test - Marc Jacobs' new frames

Road test - Marc Jacobs' new frames
Marc Jacobs

Instyle's Fashion Assistant rides the bumpy road of fashion to test out this season's hottest accessories each week.

Marc Jacobs is renowned for creating downtown New York cool with a healthy dose of grunge for good measure. An aesthetic he has stayed true to when creating these Special Edition MJ 292 frames.

Being the discerning fashionista that I am, I couldn’t recommend these frames to you without first road testing them. So that’s exactly what I did.

I’m already an enthusiastic glasses wearer so these gorgeous boxy 80s-shaped frames were right up my street.

Marc adds his own punky edge with tiny screws and stud detail on the arms, something everyone in the office commented on. I was definitely working the geek-chic look whilst bashing out emails this morning.

The dark tortoiseshell frames are a welcome relief from my usual black ones, and are less harsh for my pale colouring and blue eyes.

The verdict: A perfect grunge-glam set of frames, made all the more special by their studded white case designed by Marc.

No one should be afraid of spectacles whilst rocking these cool Cobain-style frames.

Available now for £265.
