French fashion brand Balmain has been named by Specsavers in Rayleigh as the essential frames for stylish specs wearers in 2018.

The range features upswept cat’s eye designs, as well as classic round and exaggerated angular shapes. 

The colour palette ranges from glossy black to gold, pink to tortoiseshell, and has been chosen to offer the wearer a variety of styles 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.’

Feel beautiful, confident and empowered

The 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.'

Stunning frames

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

Jagvir Grewal, Director at Specsavers in Rayleigh, says: ‘It’s incredible to have these beautiful frames exclusively at Specsavers and with their elegant and beautiful style, they’re a great way to get a new look for the new year.’

Balmain frames are available at Specsavers stores across the UK with two complete pairs for just £169.
