Well known Parisian fashion brand Balmain has been named by Specsavers in Wickford as the essential frames for stylish specs wearers in 2018.

Featuring upswept cat’s eye designs, as well as classic round and exaggerated angular shapes, the strong yet feminine statement frames evoke elegance with a Balmain aesthetic.

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.’

17 exclusive frames

Featuring 17 exclusive styles - 13 glasses and four prescription sunglasses - each pair has been inspired by Balmain’s 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 Balmain eyewear range offers Parisian chic no matter where in the world they are worn.’

Elegant, beautiful styles

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

Director at Specsavers in Wickford, Lee Hansford said: ‘It’s fantastic to have these stunning frames exclusively at Specsavers and with their elegant and beautiful style, they’re a great way to get a new look for 2018.’
