Specsavers in Epping has named parisian fashion label Balmain as the essential frames for stylish specs wearers in 2018.

The Balmain design ranges from exagerrated angles to upswept cat’s eye designs and classic round frames.

The strong yet feminine frames are a true statement the elegance brought by the Balmain aesthetic. 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.

Meticulously designed Balmain brand details can be found on every frame, including a gold ‘B’ on the temple tips and detailed embellishments on the frames inspired by the Balmain belt chain collection.

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.’

Making people feel beautiful

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.

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.’
