Levi’s collection: Made in Chelsea stars explore retro-inspired frames

The iconic denim brand Levi’s have collaborated with Specsavers to launch a new stylish glasses collection. It features 12 different designs that take inspiration from the unmistakable Levi’s aesthetic – from the retro-influenced shapes to the cool blue and metallic colour palette. These frames evoke the appeal of the free-spirited California lifestyle that is integral to Levi’s DNA and makes their designs so recognisable and loved.

And who better to style the new collection than Made in Chelsea stars, Emily Blackwell and Harvey Armstrong? Both are known in the reality show for their laid back and trendy styling, where their appreciation of the revival of vintage fashion seeps through, and of course, their choice of eyewear. They chose their top picks from the collection and styled them with simple wardrobe suggestions to help bring the whole Levi’s look together.

Angular, dark tortoiseshell glasses

Emily pairs these Levi’s dark tortoiseshell glasses with a mint green oversized t-shirt. A light coloured yet simple tee will let these specs do all the talking. The hexetate plastic contrasts perfectly against the top and the shape is a modern twist on the classic round frame. The mixture of slightly angular edges creates a unique effect that ultimately reinvents a vintage look and injects a subtle 90s appreciation.

Simple round metal frames

Both Harvey and Emily have chosen sleek Levi’s round frames from the collection. The slim metal design makes them an ideal pair for all occasions and can match with almost all of your wardrobe staples.

For Emily, she’s paired these round, metallic specs in silver with an oversized denim jacket and a chunky silver chain, to complement the metal. Together, the crafted look helps to recall Levi’s classic denim collections and ‘Blue Jeans’ craze of the 1960s and 70s, where the retro-inspired shape and signature Levi’s red tips oozes with an easy-going energy.

Harvey has opted for these Levi’s glasses in glossy gold metal. Their round, slim wired frame will ensure you stay on-trend, especially when you pair them with a white and blue striped denim shirt. The look can be dressed up or down, whether the shirt is opened or closed and these gold glasses will elevate either style.

Statement glasses

Level up any look with these bright, statement round glasses. The colour palette is a mix of orange and brown hues, which together create this almost fiery design on the durable hexetate plastic frame. Emily pairs this pair of Levi’s eyewear with a black baseball cap and a white oversized t-shirt, which encourages the glasses to be the most prominent feature of the outfit, rather than just a required accessory. Bringing a hint of the California lifestyle to your wardrobe with these glasses, as their brightness reminisces on glorious sunshine… a very different climate to the UK! 

You can even take these on-trend glasses and turn them into prescription sunglasses for the summer sunshine; together the sunglasses and baseball cap will bring the off-duty model look to life.

Semi-rimless frames

You can never go wrong with this pair of Levi’s classic clubmaster style glasses. Harvey has dressed up a plain t-shirt with these glasses, allowing the tortoiseshell browline to be flattering against the simple wardrobe choice. These deep square glasses will also look great against a grey, oversized hoodie. The effortless combination will allow the chic aesthetic of the glasses to shine through and are a surefire way to enhance an understated outfit.

Black rectangle glasses

Rectangle frames are back in trend, so of course, Emily chose these Levi’s jet black glasses. Upgrading any outfit from the office to after-work drinks, these angular style glasses will add an air of sophistication and glamour whenever you wear them. They are made from durable hexetate plastic where the clean-cut lines create a smart look in a deep black colour that pays homage to Levi’s classic denim collection. Any pair of black Levi’s jeans will complement these glasses and add the wow factor to any casual outfit.
