Every shape imaginable: large, small, boxy, pouchy, square, rounded are included in the line. Frames also vary; both covered and not, straight and curved. On the whole, the line is smart, classic and tailored. There is no particular exaggerated trend in shape; good taste in styling is the keynote."
