It has been a whole week since I went along to a press day but today I am back in the madness. I was feeling a little under the weather but I still went along since I wasn’t dying but I think I gave my cold to my husband so now it is like the worse case of man flu on the verge happening. Anyway…back to glasses. Today I went along to view glasses from Tesco Opticians and in particular their Retro54 range. Out of all the brands that are under the Tesco opticians umbrella Retro54 is probably the most popular brand and the one that has the most frequent updates within the collection.
I am personally a fan of them because the styles are always great, they are extremely affordable and very fashion forward. I guess in some ways in fashion terms Retro54 is like disposable fashion because they are reasonably priced so you can afford to keep up with trends and have more than one pair.
From affordable to something a bit more pricey- I also saw the all new Savile Row eyewear. They were totally not what I expected from them just because to me Savile Row is all about the smart, “man about town” kinda look. I was also surprised by the colour options because I thought they would be in black, navy or a brown just because it is Savile Row and those colours are always associated with suits.
However surprise surprise they have gone for some rather colourful colour choices and rather unusual looking acetate so all in all they were a real surprise to me. I will go into more detail next week and show you photos etc. Stay tuned for more.
