Superflex Kids has launched its 2019 collection of spectacles for children aged six to 12 years old.

The Westgroupe brand, which is distributed in the UK by Ridgway Optical, said that range focuses on fit and function without compromising on style.

Styles in the collection include round, rectangular and cat’s eye shapes with features such as glitter, laminations and colour contrasts.

There are 10 new styles for girls, including one stainless steel frame, seven acetate models and two combination spectacles.

The ‘SFK-206’ (pictured) model is a cat’s eye frame that includes handmade acetate filled with glitter on top with a bold, translucent acetate colour on the bottom. Colours includes teal sparkle, purple sparkle and brown sparkle.

New styles for boys include two acetate models and one combination frame, which have a sporty look and vibrant colour options.

The ‘SFK-214’ model has a classic round shape with a keyhole bridge. It has a four-colour layer lamination with a laser cut down the groove of the sides to reveal a second layer of colour. It also features metal pin dots on the end piece and sides.
