Dazzling eyewear options for the festive season


Get the party started with standout styles and stunning shapes. Prepare for the sparkly season with bold, confident eyewear that’s guaranteed to cause a stir.

Without restraint

The Boz collection by JF Rey features designs that are without boundaries in colours. Styles are flamboyant and uninhibited, yet simultaneously elegant and sophisticated. The Ipala has a chic upswept silhouette with fine metalwork, inspired by Mexican shawls. It comes in a choice of colours in both ophthalmic and sun.

The Ipala

A head-turner

Pierre Cariven has a lifelong passion for fashion and design. Every Pierre frame is handmade in France in a small workshop with just eight craftspeople. The Cecile, an oval with attitude, comes in a selection of head-turning finishes guaranteed to add je ne sais quoi to any party outfit.

Cracking crystals

Nothing says sparkle like Swarovski. This oversized metal frame, complete with a sprinkling of square Swarovski crystal embellishment on the sides brings a fresh twist to a more classic style. This eyewear is for life, not just for Christmas.
