De Rigo will return to 100% Optical at stand W140 to showcase its portfolio of brands, including the new Chopard Ice Cube collection, as well as hosting a happy hour on Saturday from 12pm.
The company said: "Whilst maintaining traditional features such as its true Italian high quality, tradition, sophistication and excellence, the Ice Cube models reinterpret current trends in Chopard’s pure style."
Glasklar from Positive Impact will launch a number of new spectacle cleaning products at 100% Optical on stand E83.
The company will showcase four new dispensing bottle finishes, as Positive Impact aims to match every practice’s colour and style. An upgrade to its cleaner atomisers and CE-marked formulation cleaning solution will also be exhibited.
Managing director of Positive Impact, Maxine Green, said: “We know the importance of keeping a consistent branding image, and so do our customers. That’s why we believe that bringing more options to our range will help practitioners to match their Glasklar system in practice even more.”
