Parisian fashion label Balmain has been named by Specsavers in Canvey Island as the essential frames for stylish specs wearers in 2018.

Featuring a variety of designs - including upswept cat’s eye designs, classic round and exaggerated angular shapes - the strong yet feminine statement frames evoke elegance with a Balmain aesthetic. The Balmain range is meticulously designed with brand details, including a gold ‘B’ on the temple tips and detailed embellishments on the frames inspired by the Balmain belt chain collection.

Colours range from  glossy black and gold, to pink and tortoiseshell, offering 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.’

Evoking elegance

With 17 exclusive styles - 13 glasses and four prescription sunglasses - each pair has been inspired by Balmain’s structured and expertly crafted clothing.

Maï adds: ‘The Balmain team take great pride in the launch of the new range, seeing it as an incredible opportunity to inspire fashion-conscious glasses wearers to update their wardrobes with a statement piece of eyewear.

‘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.

‘The Balmain eyewear range offers Parisian chic no matter where in the world they are worn.’

Accessible fashion

With the Balmain Paris range, Specsavers is able to make high-end opulence and glamour accessible to everyone.

Director at Specsavers in Canvey Island, Lee Hansford said: ‘It’s fantastic 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.’
