Lovers of stylish specs in Richmond are being encouraged to check out the new range of Balmain glasses available exclusively from their local Specsavers.

The team at Specsavers Richmond held a special event at the store on 8 November to celebrate the launch of the selection from the Parisian fashion house.

The business was decorated in black and gold balloons, while staff members also displayed their keen fashion sense by wearing Balmain glasses on the day.

Must have for Christmas

Specsavers Richmond store director Lee Penfold said: ‘We had a great launch event and we have already had a lot of interest from customers in the Balmain range. They should be at the top of any Christmas list for glasses wearers who want to keep up with the latest fashion trends.’

The Balmain range is available in 17 exclusive styles ranging from upswept cat’s eye designs to exaggerated angular shapes, which are available in gold, tortoiseshell, pink and black colours. Customers can choose from a selection of 13 glasses and four prescription sunglasses, with two complete pairs costing £169.
