Online specs ‘dangerous’

Surprise surprise, online spectacles are pretty rubbish. So rubbish that  much of the time they don’t even meet the basic British Standards and are potentially dangerous for your eyes says consumer watchdog Which.

36 pairs of glasses were purchased from 13 online retailers. 15 pairs were below par and 10 failed to meet the British Standards all glasses must conform to.

New Styles – Bevel

Timeless design,
 Innovative use of colour and quality of materials. It was these features that initially enticed us towards Bevel, but It wasn’t until we had them in our hands in Milan, or in fact, until Heather had them on her face that we realised we had to have them in the practice.

Founded in New York in 1999, Bevel was started to fill a niche in the eyewear industry with a modern, minimalist design style and outstanding workmanship. The look is understated and timeless, free of distracting logos and ornamentation and yet right on-trend. Pick up a pair of Bevel glasses and immediately feel their quality. Put them on and appreciate the precise fit, making them incredibly comfortable and flattering.

All frames are manufactured in Titanium (incredibly strong, very light and hypo allergenic) or Japanese acetate plastic (the highest quality acetate available) or a combination and come in a huge range of understated but interesting colours. Bevel frames stand out without looking wacky.

We are stocking a large range of ladies and a smaller number of gents frames, so come in and take a look or check out bevelspecs.com

 

Milan: MIDO Day 2

Another jam packed and very productive day at MIDO. Exciting new frames coming to Edinburgh soon

Today was more about refining what we saw yesterday and going back to see things again to really be sure.
We’ve found some beautiful styles that are unique (but not weird).We’re really excited to be bringing some UK firsts to Edinburgh too.
It’ll take us a while to process everything and get things into the practice but we’ll go as quick as we can and keep you updated here.
No pictures of frames today but this one is from the ‘Far East Pavilion’ and shows how hard it is to translate things well.
