Frontwoman of Marina and the Diamonds Marina Diamandis has been seen out and about in London in a colourful pair of glasses.
As the capital hosted its annual fashion week, the songstress showed off her own taste in clothing with the vibrant red and white striped sunnies. Pictures in the Daily Mail showed the star teaming the statement glasses with a cream coat, black tights and classic black and white Chanel pumps.
The newspaper noted that "quirky" Marina is developing a reputation for her bold taste in eyewear and when she attended the Mulberry fashion week show, she wore the same pair of glasses but in a bright teal blue shade.
The Mercury News recently noted the current trend for old fashioned glasses in the geek chic style among "hipster kids", with writer Celina Reynes saying that "girls are walking around with glasses that my grandfather wears".
Youngsters are teaming such glasses with other vintage pieces, such as flannel shirts, she said.
