NEW YORK — Eyewear is getting a clearer view — both creatively and in business terms.
Translucent frames are a key trend for fall, along with retro and cat-eye styles, mirrored lenses and matte plastic. These looks, exhibited at International Vision Expo East at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center here from March 14 to 17, are expected to help the sector maintain its momentum this year as its key players come off a 2012 that saw most of them generate strong growth in sales.
