Did you know Specsavers has the largest sunglasses range in New Zealand? The popular eyewear company has lots of designer styles at affordable prices to choose from and Specsavers has just released their key sunglasses looks for Spring/Summer ‘19.
The latest collection was unveiled by Stig Engelbreth Hansen, the Global Head of Product Design for Specsavers who says, “Over the past few years, we’ve seen sunglasses get a complete makeover and this season they’re going from a supporting to a starring role. We are seeing customers moving away from more functional styles to more statement-making pieces that express individualism.”
“Vintage inspired, the return of oversized square frames is both glamourous and statement-making. Practical and trendy, these frames are ideal for the summer months, offering protection from the sun’s rays. The classic cat-eye is also getting a funkier look this season. A fashionable favourite for decades they aren’t going out of style any time soon. A cat-eye pair of sunglasses will always have you looking stylish by the pool or on the beach.”
Specsavers has over 100 sunglasses styles arriving in stores this season with stand out trends include XL oversized square frames like those by Carla Zampatti, cat-eye sunglasses with sharp angles and acetate colours in shades of pink and earthy browns.
Australian designers Kym Ellery, Alex Perry and Collette Dinnigan also have new eyewear this season which play into trends allowing the wearer to have fun with sunglasses. While pop princess and Specsavers designer, Kylie Minogue, is releasing a new range which features a pair of retro cat-eye shaped sunglasses in black with glitter cut-out detail.
This season sees celebrated Dutch duo Viktor&Rolf joining the Specsavers family and they will launch three sunglasses styles as part of their exclusive collection which will be released very soon. Viktor&Rolf’s designs reflect their unique aesthetic and brand values of unexpected elegance, conceptual glamour and provocative couture.
“When it comes to choosing sunglasses, my tip is to find the right ones for you and your wardrobe and then make them work with your individual style. Sunglasses might be a small accessory, but they can have a large impact on your look. While fashionable they are also practical and offer great UV protection. Lastly go for polarised lenses, it’s an option you’ll want: Polarising cuts the glare and is a must for the summer,” adds Stig.
Specsavers Spring/Summer ’19 range has started arriving in stores nationwide and online now, and are priced from $299 for two styles.
