Another mad day of press days and checking out all the glasses that are coming out in Spring/Summer 2015. Today was all about Luxottica who have many brands under their belts. They pretty much have the monopoly within the eyewear industry. They own brands such as Ray-ban (yes! Ray-ban), Persol and Alain Mikli. I bet you all didn’t realise they are under the Luxottica umbrella?
Michael Kors is the latest brand to join the Luxottica family. It was announced last year that Luxottica have the licence to produce the brands eyewear and finally the wait is over, today I saw what we can expect from Michael Kors.
I have to say for the first collection I think they went down a very safe route. All the shapes and colours are very “safe”. I don’t know, I think I expected a bit more from them but I guess they do go with their clothing range. This collection is due to land in stores very soon so if you are a Michael Kors fan and wear glasses then you may want to check them out.
This is just a quick preview post of one of the brands I saw today. There are many more and I will go into more detail next week. So many press days and so many eyewear brands to write about. I really don’t want to write everything in one go because it will send you to sleep from reading a monster essay. Tomorrow I will be in the office for most of the day but then I am heading out to an evening event to view some more… you guessed it, glasses. My life pretty much revolves around press days at the moment. In the meantime, I must go because it is getting late and I need to rest my feet ready for tomorrow.
