Specsavers collaboration with iconic Australian designer Carla Zampatti is released this week and she joins an impressive stable of designers who have worked with the eyewear brand. Zampatti is an Italian born Australian fashion pioneer who has been in the fashion industry for over five decades and her exclusive eyewear collection with Specsavers is a perfect representation of her modern, yet timeless style.
The new eyewear collection includes 14 optical and eight prescription sunglasses with the stunning campaign featuring Australian actress and Carla Zampatti fan, Marta Dusseldorp. The designer utilised vintage-inspired looks and reinterpreted them with her sharp eye for design, making for elegant eyewear that has unique touches. The Carla Zampatti woman is purposeful with an independent spirit which comes through in Zampatti’s graceful eyewear designs.
“I’ve designed a collection I would wear. It is a collection that is both practical and flattering, offering versatile solutions for the office, home or simply a day at the beach. Every occasion, every woman, regardless of age or style,” says Carla Zampatti. “I buy sunglasses by the dozen. I love sunglasses, I always have, that’s why the idea of designing an eyewear range really appealed to me. That’s why I partnered with Specsavers, so I had more to wear!”
The collection includes a winsome selection of easy to wear frames in classic black and white, soft pastels and charming splashes of colour. Each pair is adorned with Carla’s statement signature branding and has luxurious details like gold accents and velvet matte finishes which make the eyewear stylish and eye-catching.
“Carla Zampatti is an Australian fashion icon and is undeniably one of Australia’s most influential designers. We are so thrilled to welcome her to our designer stable and to be able to offer our customers a range that is a beautiful expression of understated elegance, glamour and above all Carla Zampatti style,” says Juan Carlos, Specsavers Head of Frames.
Carla Zampatti x Specsavers collection is priced from $299 for two pairs of single vision and is now available in Specsavers’ stores nationally.
