With the new year in full swing, Specsavers in Bishops Stortford has named Parisian fashion label Balmain as the essential frames for stylish specs wearers in 2018.

The Balmain range features 17 exclusive styles - 13 glasses and four prescription sunglasses. Each pair has been inspired by Balmain’s structured and expertly crafted clothing.

Variety of styles

A colour palette of glossy black, gold, pink and tortoiseshell has been chosen to offer the wearer a variety of styles with sophisticated elegance to finish off their look. 

Balmain spokesperson Maï Dao-Vu says: ‘The collection of frames feature styles and colours that make women feel beautiful, confident and empowered. Balmain is not only a look, but also a feeling.

‘The Specsavers collaboration has provided the opportunity to bring everyone into the House of Balmain. We wanted to add a signature Balmain twist to classic and modern styles so that the frames could hint at exclusivity while maintaining the simplicity of an everyday look.

High end fashion for the high street

As a high-end fashion house, Balmain embodies the opulence and glamour that Specsavers wants to make accessible to everyone.

Director at Specsavers in Bishops Stortford, Suzanne Challoner said: ‘It’s great to have these stunning frames exclusively at Specsavers and with their elegant and beautiful style, they’re a great way to get a new look for 2018.’
