It’s finally here! Spring has shaken off its winter coat and at Island Optical, we’re more than ready to usher in the new season. Barbeques with the family, picnics with friends. Bushwalks, headlands, botanical gardens. Now’s the time to get outside, to bask in the sunshine. Wherever you decide to wander, why not take a new pair of Island Optical glasses with you?
As we tumble into spring, it’s the perfect time to remember that at every moment we get to decide who we are and how we present ourselves. Spring brings rebirth, rejuvenation, reinvention. Take control this season, and spring clean more than just your broom cupboard.
For many of us, our glasses are constant companions, never leaving our side (…or face). This makes it far too easy to become complacent with our style, looking right past the most obvious item of our wardrobe. Glasses are practical, yes, but also an essential keystone of every outfit. Now’s the moment to ask, is it time for a change? Take this opportunity to channel the power of a classic makeover scene from your favourite early-2000s rom-com, and consider a fresh look for the new season.
At Island Optical, we have an exciting range of frames perfect for greeting spring. And with our online appointment book, it takes no time at all to organise a bulk-billed eye test to ensure your vision is crystal clear. Your spring look starts here.
Get started with a few of our favourites below…
Lovely 18L1P from Amy Sherrbrook was made for the sunshine. Featuring a translucent rim in an indulgent oval shape, the lightness of this frame’s front is grounded by classic tort temples. Meanwhile, hints of colour – red, pink, or purple – bookend the arms for a splash of cheekiness. This is a dynamic frame, with available colours including pink, purple, brown, and black.
Sophistication is simple in spring with the VF9324K from Fila. There’s a humble confidence in its rounded rims, the placid blue shade conjuring both refinement and approachability. On the temples, joyful yellow lines add character, making this a truly signature frame. The VF9324K is also available in an imperturbable black for those seeking an assured elegance. However you intend to meet it, this spring is yours to conquer.
When it comes to spring, the amiable Bridgit B22L3P needs no assistance. Available in a variety of brilliant colours, with her square shape and full rim, the B22L3P really comes to life at the temples. Stretches of abstract design flow down the full length, heedless strokes of colour reminiscent of the brightest of flower bushes or dancing spring wildlife. Find her in blue, red, purple, clear, or black, gorgeous no matter the shade.
Subtle is overrated. The Charlie C19U1P refuses to be quiet, throwing itself into spring with buoyant optimism. The combination of mottled tortoiseshell temples and a merry round shape gives this frame a personality all of its own. With your choice of pink, peach, brown, grey, and tort, the C19U1P perfectly accessorises a massive, cheek-to-cheek smile.
As flowers blossom and fauna awakens, Radley London’s Aviana frame celebrates in her own way. Her round, brown rim encourages familiarity, composed but inviting. Her temples, however, take this frame beyond neutral. Delicate lined flowers are sketched finely atop a modest white canvas; personal, poignant. Aviana enters spring reverentially, ready to receive each day with fresh eyes.
Reassuring DA14M1P from Douglas Anthony revels in the springtime. Alternating different shades of honeyed brown down its square rims, this frame is able to bring exciting creativity to a tried-and-true tone. On its temples, the DA14M1P puts another twist on tradition as small metal highlights give way to lattice-like designs which reach down the arms.
