Bold and brave
Optometrist and lifestyle blogger, Lizzy Yeowart, concludes that now is the time for something completely different
What a year it has been. Cheer yourself and your clients up with bold, brave eyewear – and let’s celebrate the fact that we have got through it all so far.
Made in the 1970s
Pugnale has always prided itself on uniqueness. The rose-shaped Rosaspina has ceramic nosepads and acetate temples for optimal comfort, and is handmade in Italy.
For the non-conformist and avante-garde, Genesis eyewear offers designs inspired by Lichtenstein and Mondrian. Be it asymmetric design or unique colour combinations, every style demands attention.
The layered rim construction of the metal ‘Techno’ geometric frame is a guaranteed head-turner. This design features one rim with a diamond-etched finish, superimposed upon a second coloured rim.
Lizzy's style notes...
Each month, OT columnist, Lizzy Yeowart, considers a dispensing scenario. This month: frames for a 66-year-old spectacle wearer
A 66-year-old woman is likely to have a strong sense of her own individual style. She will know exactly what she wants and what suits her.
Hair and skin fades with age. A vibrant pop of colour will stop the wearer from looking washed out. Think of Prue Leith. For elegant, warm neutrals Coco Song is hard to beat.

Glamorous grandmothers won’t be able to resist the Aurora by Pier Martino Eyewear. In handmade acetate with Swarovski crystal detail, the soft neutral will flatter all skin tones.
