Specsavers in Totton has selected its new Balmain range as its glasses to watch in 2018 and is encouraging specs wearers looking to update their look in 2018 to come in and try a pair for themselves.

The selection from the Parisian fashion house is available to customers in 17 exclusive styles to choose from – from upswept cat’s eyes to exaggerated angular shapes – with two complete pairs costing £169.

New year, new you

Balmain spokesperson Maï Dao-Vu said: ‘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.

Richard Morgan, store director at Specsavers Totton, added: 'We have had a lot of interest in the Balmain range since launch and the glasses are an ideal choice for specs wearers looking to try out different styles in the New Year.'
