Finding classic retro styled prescription glasses can be a nightmare at times, especially when you don't want to pay above and beyond for the right pair of frames. Thankfully an internet opticians has answered our plea and designed a range of retro inspired glasses.
Glasses direct's London Retro range encapsulates classic style with a modern twist, a collection of glasses designed to look vintage without the hefty price tag. Taking inspiration from vintage frame designs with classic styles taken up to date to fit in with modern styling and shapes. With classic looks from cat-eyes to aviators, that certainly wouldn't be amiss on the counters of a vintage shop.
The beauty of having a vintage inspired collection available at an opticians is certainly miraculous, how many of us have picked up a pair of vintage frames and wondered if a local opticians could fit modern lenses into them? It certainly would come with a high price attached, the London Retro collection is certainly most welcome, especially at a time when vintage style and nostalgia seem to be at a all time high, the demand has never been better.
The London Retro collection features both mens and womens styles with plenty of 30's - 80's inspired designs amongst the range, all at affordable prices, with many of the designs fitting into their '2 for the price of 1' offer, so you could snap up two vintage pairs for just £95!
The fit and feel of the frames are certainly perfect, their Eliza cat-eye glasses are far lighter than I'd envisioned (even with my thick lenses!) and certainly capture the iconic glasses style. The gorgeous brownie camera inspired case that comes with the frames is simply darling and finishes the package off perfectly.
All you need to order your own vintage style frames is your most recent prescription and they'll do the rest from there, you can even order a home trial to test out the frames prior to ordering so you can try a few of your favourites out, it's almost like bringing the opticians to your home.
You certainly won't find a more fitting classic style for such an affordable price on the high street, why not view the range and find your favourites at www.glassesdirect.co.uk/londonretro
