For stylish specs wearers looking to update their look this year, Specsavers in Waterlooville has the perfect solution.

The store has named the Balmain range as its essential frames for 2018 and, with 17 exclusive styles to choose from – from upswept cat’s eyes to exaggerated angular shapes – there is a pair to suit every taste.

Bill Vance, store director at Specsavers Waterlooville, said: ‘The Balmain range is already going down a storm with customers and, with so many styles and options to choose from, there’s something for everyone.’

Stylish and sophisticated

Balmain spokesperson Maï Dao-Vu said: ‘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.’

Customers can pick up Balmain frames from Specsavers Waterlooville at a cost of £169 for two complete pairs.
