Love at first sight – Kylie Minogue launches debut glasses collection
POP ICON and style maven Kylie Minogue shows she has a real eye for fashion as she launches her first ever eyewear collection, exclusively at Specsavers.
A stunning combination of elegance and edginess, the collection reflects Kylie’s own personal sense of style. Launching in the 8 Specsavers Opticas stores in Spain this February, the range features 24 pairs of glasses and four prescription sunglasses and they are available as part of the two pairs with single vision lenses for 129€ offer.
Kylie herself describes the collection as modern classics and reinvented vintage, drawing inspiration from different eras in different shapes, textures and colours. Each frame features a striking angled temple and her iconic ‘K’ star tag for a chic but understated hint of Kylie glam.
Speaking about the collection, Kylie says: ‘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 we’ve incorporated, through what I like to call a hint of subtle bling!’
Reflecting her own famously petite frame, the new collection includes several styles in smaller sizes.
Kylie adds: ‘At my request, we made sure the collection includes some petite frames. I know what it’s like searching for glasses and not being able to any that fit. We’ve really made sure there’s something in there for everyone!’
While it’s hard to narrow down her favourite pair, Kylie’s top picks include:
Kylie 5 – ‘I love these gorgeous cat’s eye frames. They’re a combination of tortoiseshell and chartreuse – it’s actually quite hard to pin down what colour they are as it changes depending on the light, but that’s what makes them so versatile. I’ve received many compliments on this pair!’
Kylie Sun RX 4 – ‘Whenever I wear these sunglasses, I picture myself driving around the south of France in a convertible car. I love the rose gold combined with the green leather and marbled effect along the sides. They’re also really comfortable and make you feel like you’re on holiday all the time.’
Kylie 15 – ‘These are a very classic shape and slightly more masculine and edgy – but definitely something I would wear every day. There’s a much more sexy vibe here too with the little bit of sparkle on the side. These frames are great for taking you from during the day all the way through to evening.’
