We're not really sure why anybody would want to look like Andy Warhol... but hairstyling aside, he had some great gigs.

We don't know how she does it but Gaynor Eade, architect and mother of three boys, always looks relaxed. Gaynor's passion for design led her straight to our honest, no-nonsense SALT Optics range. Here she is looking super serene in her new SALT 'Chambers'.

If you like the look of these frames, come in and try some on today.
They won't be on the shelves for long!
Meet Angela Yan. She's a stylish AUT student who absolutely loves Dita eyewear. Can you blame her? It's hard not to fall in love with Dita's luxurious designs, especially when they look this good on you. This time Angela has chosen the deliciously red 'Opus' sunglasses for a touch of refined elegance.
She says she loves our High Street store. We suspect it has something to do with our Dita collection but we'd like to think that's not the only reason.
Enjoy your new shades Angela!

Jeanette Paine was one of our first clients when we opened in Teed St almost 8 years ago and has since become a good friend and devotee of beautiful eyewear.
Jeanette is the Executive Director of Marketing and Communications at Unitec Institute of Technology and responsible for the latest "Change Starts Here" campaign, which you might have seen on the telly. Great to see you're leading the way with 'change' Jeanette - as with these frames and sunglasses we're pretty sure the Institute will be asking you to head the fashion department as well.
Dita's Svelte for opticals and Oliver Goldsmith's Sophie for prescription sunglasses are both excellent choices. Not only are they both gorgeous design classics, but they're perfect for Jeanette's high script as neither go too wide or deep.
SALT is a company that honours its mission statement:
"An independent lifestyle company making premium handcrafted eyewear for people who like simple things made well."
At MHPE we do like things made well and we do like SALT - the company and their frames and sunglasses! New designs from SALT are refined, balanced and honest.
For women we love 'Jane' in Toffee Tortoise Pink.
While theunisex 'Clark' cleverly provides a "bold and chunky" option for people with fine features.
Below are our other new arrivals from SALT. We have just ordered more as several have sold before we had time to get them photographed!
'Stella' in Whiskey
'Stella' in Plum Gradient

Peter is one of our favourite clients and wears his new Zero G sunglasses particularly well, we think. He loves the extreme comfort of Zero G's ultra-lightweight surgical titanium designs.
Peter is now looking for some new optical glasses... Will he go for a Zero G?
