Walter & Herbert, made in England eyewear just launched 14 new optical styles and 2 new sunglass styles to their collection, ready for A/W 2018. All the frames are named after English icons such as composer Edward Elgar, artist & sculptor Barbara Hepworth and scientist Barnes Wallis.
I have been a fan of Walter & Herbert for quite some times now because 1) They are made in England, which is VERY rare now days 2) They produce some real classic looking pieces but always with a modern twist 3) very sophisticated 4) Good quality with good price point and 5) THEY COME IN ASIAN FIT IN EUROPE! I shout the last point because I cannot express how rare it is that a brand offers Asian fit, in Europe.
All frames are made out of acetate, my favourites are Blake and Wellington. Blake is a good strong statement piece within the collection if you ask me, available in two colourways- Storm Grey and Indigo Ember. Priced at £240.
Then for the new optical style, I am a fan of the Wellington, it’s got a bit of the 80’s vibe going on and I am all over the Crystalline Tort. I do have a thing for crystal frames. They just look really cool I think. They may not be suitable for everyone but if you can pull it off, you should go for it. The Wellington is available in three colourways- Black Slate, Indigo Ember and Crystalline Tort. Priced at £230, the Crystalline is funky but if you take a look at the black slate, the colour makes the frame look so smart and they will instantly smarten up any look.
Anyway, best thing to do is to check out their website if you are interested in having a further investigation at the other styles.Hopefully, I will get to try them on and see them soon. hehe.
