Dive into Ocean Blue

International Eyewear launches 36 new luxury prescription sunglasses

International Eyewear Ocean Blue

International Eyewear has launched its 2017 prescription sunglasses collection for men and women with a special offer until the end of January.

The 36 additions to the company’s luxury Ocean Blue collection are designed for the progressive lens wearer.

A signature model from the collection for women is ‘Ocean Blue 9235.’ The bold acetate is said by the company to be a prime example of catwalk trends being translated into eyewear.

The fashionable deep round eye shape, keyhole bridge and double-pin detailing offer a nostalgic nod to the past by reinventing popular detailing into a contemporary style.

The multi mottle ‘C1’ colour combines a classic tortoiseshell with pastel tones and is said by the company to create a pair of statement sunglasses for the 2017 summer season.

For men, ‘Ocean Blue 9221’ is the highlighted model in the new range. The wayfarer sunglasses feature an all-over laser-etched wood effect.

All the new sunglasses are supplied with a premium logo-branded case.

International Eyewear sunglasses are offered with lenses with 100% UVA and UVB protection and fully conform to British Standard BS EN ISO 12311: 2013 and BS EN ISO 12312-1 (2013).

Practitioners ordering more than 18 frames before 31 January 2017 will receive 2016 prices, plus a logo-branded SPF25 sun lotion free with every pair of sunglasses.

International Eyewear marketing executive, Olivia Young told OT:  “We are proud to unveil our luxury Ocean Blue prescription sunglasses collection for 2017, offering an eclectic mix of contemporary and classic sunglasses for him and for her.”
