Making children 'Rock Stars' in the sun
Eyespace launches three ‘fashion-forward’ sunglasses for youngsters
29 December 2016
The British frames supplier highlights that they enable “young frame wearers aged five to 15 to enjoy being as fashion-forward as their parents when out in the sun.”
Passionate about re-interpreting trends for a young audience, Eyespace has carefully composed eye shapes, colours and materials for its Rock Star collection.
The new model, ‘Huntington,’ is a sunglasses style for boys, featuring distinctive blue mirror lenses. It also has a navy and blue camouflage eye front interior, as well as black sides with dual star detailing.
A confident addition to the Rock Star sun range, ‘Bondi’ oozes vintage cool with a retro shape and offers UV400 protection.
It is available in colour ‘C1,’ a purple and print design, which remains edgy due to its colour blocking and chunky silhouette. Colour ‘C2’ is a highly polished tortoiseshell designed to remain fashionable season after season.
In size 52-19-130, Eyespace believes that the new style will also be a useful option for adults with smaller faces.
Glitter-infused, pastel sunglasses ‘Malibu’ means that “girls can shimmer in the sun,” the company says. The sunglasses are offered with a lilac eye front and mint green sides.
The round eye shape in a 50-eye size offers good coverage and the bridge fitting has been precisely designed to ensure that the frame sits correctly on young faces.
Developed in the UK, Eyespace’s sunglasses are suitable for plano or prescription sunglasses, and offer “the most comprehensive levels of sun protection.”
Eyespace’s head of product development, Emily Shepherd, told OT: “In response to the huge success of our Cocoa Mint and Jensen sun ranges, we found ourselves being asked frequently for children’s sunglasses as well.
“It’s in our DNA to listen to our customers and consequently, we have this year launched Rock Star Sunwear. In keeping with the brand ethos we have developed a capsule range, which embodies the all-American attitude of our ophthalmic frames, while still offering the high-quality standards we are renowned for.”
Ms Shepherd emphasised: “Children’s eye health should never be compromised, and so we have used our comprehensive expertise to create a collection that is bursting with retro cool, as well as using the best-quality components.”
She explained: “All lenses are optical quality ‘CR39’ (UV400) for the highest level of protection from the sun’s rays, and have been carefully selected in shades to complement the individual frame colour options. We have even included high- impact blue-mirror lenses, specially sourced in a ‘CR39’ material.”
Ms Shepherd concluded: “The styles are iconic and have been designed to appeal to children, as well as offering excellent coverage, so practices can have complete confidence in the products they are dispensing.”
