Vision Express has introduced Cartier Eyewear into its portfolio and will offer the spectacles and sunglasses collection exclusively in 13 of its UK practices.
During an official launch, hosted by Kering Eyewear at the multiple’s flagship Oxford Street store last Tuesday (6 March), guests got to preview the collection which consists of 12 ophthalmic and 10 sunglass frames.
The collection contains both the Panthere de Cartier and Santos de Cartier ranges. While the Panthere de Cartier frames include cat-eye and modern square shapes, each featuring the brand’s panther symbol, the Santos de Cartier range is designed to pay tribute to the Brazilian aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont.
Speaking at the launch, CEO of Vision Express, Jonathan Lawson, said: “It’s a tough time for retail at the moment, so we need to celebrate successes. Our team here is so impressed by the range that they’re already asking for more product – they’re excited to offer it to our customers.”
He added that it was “fantastic” to see Kering’s vision for a new collection that brings a modern flair to attract a younger audience, come to fruition.
