John Rocha unveils his first collection of frames
Internationally-renowned fashion designer John Rocha has teamed up with Specsavers to launch a new eyewear collection.
Inherently true to the John Rocha style, the timeless collection features 13 frames in beautiful colours, textures and wonderful temple embellishments.
John, who recently unveiled his autumn/winter 2013 collection at London Fashion Week, comments: ‘I’m very excited about designing glasses. Eyewear is now a desirable fashion accessory, rather than just a necessity and so I felt it was really important to create a collection which was wearable yet stylish.’
Known for his pared back styles and muted palette, John has made a departure this season using bright crimson, blush pink and indigo blue. This is reflected in his eyewear collection.
John continues: ‘I’ve drawn on some of the recurring temple motifs, criss-cross and lace patterns and embellishments that you’ll find in my other collections, but have injected more colour. I usually tend to favour the more muted colours of black, ecru and charcoal but last year I spent some time working in the south of France and I suppose the light and colour there made me appreciate and consider colour more.
‘I’ve used indigo and petrol blues, purple and berry red tones in a combination of metal and acetate to make the glasses a true fashion statement. Ultimately, if you love fashion or just feel good wearing them, then they are for you.’
