LADIES SELECTING THEIR next pair of glasses from a leading Moray store could be following in the footsteps of one of the music industry’s biggest stars.
Specsavers in Elgin will be able to supply the first even eyewear collection selected by Kylie Minogue, who has demonstrated a ‘real eye’ for fashion in the stunning combination of elegance and edginess.
Her collection features 25 glasses and five prescription sunglasses that is being launched in all Specsavers stores around the UK on Valentine’s Day.
Describing the collection as a “mix of modern classics, subtle bling and reinvented vintage”, Kylie has drawn inspiration from different eras in a variety of shapes, colours and textures. Each frame features a striking angled temple and her iconic ‘K’ tag for a chic but understated hint of Kylie glamour.
Kylie said: ‘Designing the glasses has been a fabulous experience. I’ve taken a lot of inspiration from the idea of modern classics, popular shapes and styles that suit most people, but with my own personal twist on them.
“Expressing yourself with your glasses is really important and I know that personally. I love to continually change my look, so having a real mixture of styles is definitely something that works for me.
“Often you want to be able to combine that functional day-to-day look with a little more glamour for the evening – that’s definitely something I’ve incorporated, through what I like to call a hint of subtle bling!”
Reflecting her petite frame, the new collection includes several styles in smaller sizes, with the Australian superstar adding: “At my request, we made sure the collection includes some petite styles.
“I know what it’s like searching for glasses and not being able to find any that fit. We’ve really made sure there’s something in there for everyone!”
