Bold and brave

Optometrist and lifestyle blogger, Lizzy Yeowart, concludes that now is the time for something completely different

Rosaspina by Pugnale

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.

Finding layers

‘Techno’ by X-IDE

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

Lizzy says...
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.

Elegance epitomised

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.
