Hello you gorgeous bunch, hope you’re having a fabulous week so far!
I am SO excited to share this post with you. You all know how much I bloody love glasses, I wear them everyday – they are literally the logo of this blog… basically glasses are everything to me and a HUGE part of who I am. So when the beauties at Silhouette asked me to partner up with them to share their latest collection with you guys I jumped on the chance.
So lets get started, Silhouette are a luxury Austrian brand that are best known for their rimless eye wear. They began 50 years ago with the vision to create eye wear as a luxury fashion accessory. Now for those that have read some of my previous fashion posts you’ll know how important this is to me. My glasses have to represent me, they have to be the best accessory I have whatever the outfit. Why? Well quite simply because they are right there – on my face and often the first thing people notice about me. So yeah Silhouette’s vision and ethos is something I grabbed onto straight away and with Cate Blanchett and Nadja Auerman and Jennifer Garner already avid fans, I knew I was in great company!
The latest collection to launch is the new Inspire range. Boasting a unique frame design that conceals the hinges, offering a sleek contemporary style.
What’s even better? You have the choice of 12 different lens shapes, 12 different coloured frames as well 4 gorgeous tinted lens options so you can really personalise them and choose a lens shape and colour that suits you the best. Colour options include a mix of sophisticated pastels, natural tones and rich hues, so there really is something for everyone. I went ahead with the grey frames with gold hard wear as it’s a colour palette I love and that I know will go with everything and if you look closely you may have noticed I’ve spiced things up with the lenses themselves so wanted the frame to be simple and a more understated colour. Shape wise I went ahead with shape code ‘DM‘ as I wanted something rounded but still with a slight angular feel to them. The lenses I chose to do something a bit different, a gradient tint in rose. The tint options is a unique feature for the Inspire collection and one that I loved. It’s subtle but it makes such a difference. I have so many pairs of glasses and so when something comes along that is a bit different I’m all for it!
So here we have it, my choice from the Inspire range and I bloody well love them! I paired them with this outfit and honest to goodness I was strutting down the street, I felt amazing. The bespoke design suits my personality so much and for me, my glasses have to represent who I am and what I’m about and these beauties certainly do that. The super lightweight quality of the lenses means there’s no nose marks (which is a real bug bear for any glasses wearer) and the attention to detail is top notch!
Under the Silhouette brand, the majority of glasses are made by hand using the best materials and state of the art technologies and this is something that really does stand out when wearing them. As someone who have several pairs of glasses and over the late 20 years in which I’ve worn them have gone through a lot of different types of frames and lenses etc, these really do stand out. The quality is just so high and they really do make me stand out from the crowd, in short – I’m pretty chuffed!
