Luxottica, SA’s luxury eyewear importer, held a little bash the other day to show off their new frames. Their brands include Ray-Ban, Oakley, Burberry, Prada, Versace, DKNY, D&G, Miu Miu, Bulgari, Chanel, the list goes on and on and on…
Guests got to sip Villiera Tradition Brut Rose (so yum!) and browse their latest eyewear collections while local muso Andy Lunt entertained the crowd:
Interesting, there weren’t all that many sunnies but loads of regte egte specs, as in reading glasses. This actually suited me as I’m desp for a proper pair of glasses that don’t make me look like a saddo old cat collector. I’ve gotten to this place where I can see close up, but if I’m watching something on TV with subtitles they might as well be bloody Mandarin. (To date, I still only have a vague idea as to how The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo rolled out…)
Anyway, a few of the more interesting guests included Glamour fashion ed/one time junior school buddy Bronwyn Day:
The sunnies that most impressed her were the super cute ‘Dixies’ that she’s wearing in the piccie up above. Here, get a better look:
Another ex-PE peep, comedian Martin Evans, was also there. He was quite taken with these Ray-Ban’s:
If you’re headed to the Grahamstown Festival this year, keep an eye out for his show, Pants on Fire. He’ll be performing alongside Rob van Vuuren as well as a ‘mystery local celeb’.
Oh! And the dudes from Locnville where also out and about:
They were lingering over a giant bowl of these guys:
The Locnville boys are actually in a new video-ad-thing; Ray-Ban teamed up with them and a few other artists to cover Tommy Tucker’s Sunglasses at Night. Check it out here:
Anyway, these are some of the glasses I liked:
…but these tortoisehell Vogues were my favourite:
Wanna see them on?
So. Are you also looking for new sunnies? Specs perhaps? The new frames are sitting in Sunglass Hut as I type.
