Glasses of the Week: Japanese Blue

When the lovely Janet Hoffman came searching for glasses, she wanted something classic with a twist. This Japanese designed and made frame from Yellows Plus is the perfect choice. 
The navy blue Japanese zyl acetate is subtle enough to pass for black in low lighting but in certain light picks up the blue beautifully, and tortoiseshell temples add an interesting touch. 
This design complements Janet wonderfully.

Lest We Forget: Anzac Day

Lest We Forget
In Flanders fields the poppies blow 
Between the crosses row on row, 
That mark our place; and in the sky 
The larks, still bravely singing, fly 
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago 
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, 
Loved and were loved, and now we lie 
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: 
To you from failing hands we throw 
The torch; be yours to hold it high. 
If ye break faith with us who die 
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow 
In Flanders fields.

Please note:

Both stores will be closed Saturday 25th April in observance of Anzac Day, and closed Sunday as always.
Teed Street reopens Monday 27th
High Street reopens Tuesday 28th

New Martin & Martin Has Landed!

Opening up deliveries from our designers often feels like Christmas, especially when there are brand new models, so this week's arrival from Germany of 60 pieces of eyewear was pretty exciting! 

Amongst them are all our firm favourites in a variety of colourways, as well as some beautiful new designs in innovative colours. 

We've rounded up a small selection here, see more in store!

Glasses of the Week: A Lofty Look

Michael Waffelbakker looks professional and original in his new Bevel titanium glasses in Matte Horn Blue. 
As Director of Loft Kitchen, who supply markets like Nosh and Farro Fresh with their freshly made sauces and dips, Michael is conscious of projecting the right image. The blue of the frame picks up the colour of his company's uniform and highlights his eyes while looking fresh!

Glasses of the Week: BioMed Bevel

Biomedical Science student Alexandra Chaptynova decided that the end of school and start of University was the best time to upgrade her glasses. Alexandra exudes a star like quality in these stylish but refined Bevel titanium frames just perfect for long days at uni, and hopefully a little fun on the weekends!

Introducing NEW Claire Goldsmith for 2015!

We are thrilled to receive the continuation of Claire Goldsmith's latest additions to her Legacy range. These frames are newly released and we are among the first in the world to be offering them!

As with the last arrivals of 2014, the newest Claire Goldsmith modelss are a slimmer, more streamlined take on her signature style. They still contain the recognisable Goldsmith DNA, but are more pared back, carefully contoured and refined. Take a look below at the beautiful designs, it's tricky choosing which colours to feature as they are all gorgeous.
