Continuing from yesterdays blog post on my press days adventured last week, I am going to talk about Religion Eyewear. Yes, Religion as in the fashion label well known for their street culture influenced designs. The brand has always been associated with being cool and individual so it is no surprise their eyewear range echoes the same vibe. The latest collection which is available at Tesco Opticians is definitely better than their last. I felt the last collection was good but this latest one is better than good. They have improved the designs massively and have introduced more colours to the range.
Within the collection I do have couple of favourites and that is quite rare for me. I do have quite an impressive collection of eyewear but I do not have a pair of tortoiseshell frames because I have never seen anything I am mad about. That was until I saw a pair from Religion! It was an instant love at first sight.
I LOVED the colour and the shapes were pretty good too- it is a bit of a cateye style but not if you see what I mean. The frames can multitask too, the shape and size is good enough to put a pair of Transitions lenses in so they can transform into a rather cool pair of sunglasses.
Another style which really wowed me was the wooden effect frame. They are not wood but they do look like it, it wasn’t until I picked them up when I found out they were acetate. For those of you who are not keen on wearing wooden frames for whatever reason but want to keep up with this trend then this pair of Religion is perfect for you!
The colours are super and will seek attention too which I LOVE because I do love an eye catching fame. The black against the bright orange is such a strong contrast but works so well at the same time. The choice of colours available definitely get a thumbs up from me! If you are expecting high quality frames with good hinges then these may not be for you because like I have always said you will only get the best quality frames if you are buying niche brands and are willing to spend the money. Nevertheless these frames are fun, affordable and if you like to keep up with the fashion, come next season you may want another pair anyway so it doesn’t matter so much on the quality.
