The fashion industry has attempted to make wearing glasses cool so many times that practically everybody owns a pair, even those with 20/20 vision. We’ve all got at least one friend who caught on to that Roy Orbison-esque thick-rimmed glasses fad. Short-lived fashion trends aside, it can be hard to find a really nice stylish pair which actually suits your face. That’s why we salute Victoria Beckham's news that she’s introducing her own line of designer optical frames. Finally!
Victoria’s New Glasses Range
We hear that Beckham decided to add a range of stylish glasses to her much sought-after repertoire mainly due to the fact that, just like us, she finds it extremely difficult to find a flattering pair. The six-piece optical collection isn’t set to go on sale until January, as glasses have to undergo several production stages before making it to market. According to WWD, silhouettes range from delicate and feminine styles such as superlight metal aviators to heavier, acetate rectangular shapes; some are even unisex. They’re definitely an investment piece, as they’ll set you back around £295-£340. At least we’ve got plenty of months ahead to save up.
Gok Wan for Specsavers
If you’re looking to spend a little bit less on your new pair of glasses and you fear the usual prescription offerings, fear not as celebrity stylist, Gok Wan, is continuing to do wonders with his own eyeglass range at SpecSavers. His collection begins at £99 and often has exclusive two-for-one offerings, and being a glasses wearer himself means that the collection is not only practical but definitely more stylish than the rest. If you don’t believe us, check out his current collection for Specsavers online.
