We're a fan of Ray-Ban

I'm sure I dont need to spend too much time introducing Ray-Ban to you!

Established in 1937 Ray-Ban are continuing to build on their success first acheived with the help of the U.S Air Force. They were looking for sunglasses that would perform under the extreme conditions faced by pilots. As ever Ray-Ban delivered!

The brand is said to be 'iconoclastic', cool, worn by movie stars, rock icons and trendsetters from all over the world. Harry Styles, Tom Cruise and Rihanna are just a few famous fans of the brand.

Always looking to expand and innovate, Ray-Ban have introduced a LiteForce and Polarized collection. Tech LiteForce allow re-invention of frames featuring the latest material innovation. Add this to the 'iconoclastic' coolness of the brand and exceptional quality and function is what allows Ray-Ban to sustain their place in the forefront of the eyewear market.


Classic Persol

These are instantly recognisable and classic frames. Originally catering for pilots and sports drivers, Persol had to deliver quality to such affluent audiences.

In order to acheive this standard, the frames are made by hand with the highest quality materials. From the crystal lenses to the acetate and metal frames to the iconic arrow and hidden technologies beneath the surface - Persol bring you a work of art!

The stunning new vintage collection arrives after Persol explored the fascination with the past. Taking us further back in time is the Antique range. In their continuous search for the authentic vintage feel, the acetate tumbling process mentioned in a previous Persol blog has been perfected. This allows new styles to be given the timeless appeal of an antique frame.

So whether you're after a classic and mature frame or to add a vintage accessory to your modern day look - Persol has a frame for you!


Anglo American aims for perfection!

If you're after a vintage look with a modern twist then this is the brand for you!

Having perfected the art of frame-making, Anglo American have 120 years of experience. In the 1990's Anglo American tried to move the brand forward. The brand stays true to itself yet still has a modern feel which appeals to everyone.

Anglo American once boasted that 'with each frame being handled at least seventy-five times in forty-three operations, and being checked a minimum of fifteen times it may not be the cheapest way to make a frame but for Anglo American Eyewear it is the only way!' This shows you the time taken and the desire to bring you such high quality products and by just looking at the range in The BIG Optician you can see they have reached this goal.

The only thing Anglo American left us at The BIG Optician to do is to fit your frame so it is all round perfection!

 


Do you dare to be different?

Anglo American dared to be different in the 70's when they created basic shapes but in a larger size than was common at the time. That daring streak continues as they still deliver quirky and fun designs for us to enjoy.

Since launching a store on Park Avenue in New York, Anglo American have never looked back having worldwide success. They have been a trend-setter of the heavy brow bar on frames as well as using fashionable colours and shapes that we may never have dared to try!

This daring streak was something that the one and only Dame Edna Everage, played by Barrie Humphries, embraced. Whether it be butterfly shaped frames or using Humphries' own ideas of 'curls' and 'flames', Anglo American along with costume designer Stephen Adnitt provided 'face furniture' worth talking about!

Now with similar frames to Curvebar and Sirmont and some of which being worn by Johnny Depp and Michael Cain CBE, there is a frame for the more refined of us!


Persol's a hit with the Stars!

Persol is known for it's outstanding quality and technical features as well as beautiful craftsmanship which is also what you can find here at The BIG Optician!

Targeting cosmopolitan, affulent people who appreciate quality and the finer things in life it is no wonder these glasses have been worn by great names in the world of cinema. Robert de Niro, Jack Nicholson and Daniel Craig are to name just a few but the legendary Steve McQueen would only be seen in Persol frames!

Modern celebrity followers include: Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, Pippa Middleton and Kristen Stewart. I always knew Zac Efron had style and he has confirmed that recently by wearing Persol. Being able to combine a cool yet beautiful look in one frame is not easy to achieve but this authentic Italian brand has more than delivered.

Now see how often you spot a Persol frame in your favourite magazine or latest film release! 


Italian Stallion Persol!

Where do I start with this iconic brand!?

Persol comes with unmistakable Italian heritage and is how these frames are easily identifiable. Each piece of eyewear comes from a world of culture, artisan craftsmanship, experience and talent which has been refined and protected since 1917.

In order to create unique models that are both beautiful to behold and which perform to the highest standards, Persol use the best materials around. The large range of frames comes from the materials used having such versatility, unmistakable feel and workability allowing it to be used in a variety of ways.

Just like Persol, The BIG Optician want to bring you the best in eyewear and our stock will show you exactly that!


The key to Tiffany & Co.

Having dreamt of reliving Audrey Hepburn's iconic visit to Tiffany's, I was estatic to hear that The BIG Optician has brought a piece of that to me! With several styles available you need to come and take a look!

My favourite has to be the quentessential Heart Lock collection. Since being established in 1837, Tiffany & Co. set the standard for sterling jewellery. Having demonstrated their creations were of the highest quality, they have branched out to bring us frame wearer's another piece of luxury!

This charming yet dignified collection feels vintage yet remains contemporary and of course effortlessly chic! The famous Tiffany Lock is based on the 209 various lock designs featured on their jewellery.

So if your after a timeless yet stylish frame then Tiffany & Co. have what your looking for!


Etnia Barcelona - Stand out from the crowd

I love a brand who know how to create an identity for themselves and Etnia Barcelona are exactly that!

With an aim of being the most colourful and creative brand in the world, Etnia have a bold and exciting collection for you to see. This unique and exclusive eyewear brand who's spirit reflects the variety of people and personalities from all over the globe.

'Impersonality kills' is the brands' hallmark which portrays the belief that in the world of fashion you must convey your own personality!

The mineral lenses are perfect for such a high quality frame. These are made from natural crystal materials which have benefit after benefit. From impact-resistance and anti-static to UV protection and anti-glare these frames provide outstanding quality and comfort!

If after that you're not dying to see Etnia Barcelona in store, I don't know what will!


Good Eyesight- A child's passport to the future

The new term is here and many mum's are breathing a sigh of relief! However how many remembered the all important eye test for their child?

A child's eyesight can affect several aspects of their life including interaction, concentration and reading. An astounding 80% of a child's learning is visual which means that children with poorer eyesight may not be able to develop to their full potential!

A child's vision can change quickly so regular examinations are important from the age of 3! The NHS recommends annual eye tests for children. The BIG Optician stocks a wide range of frames with cool, fashionable designs so children can feel comfortable wearing them.

With a warm, welcoming and expert team The BIG Optician is ideal for your little munchkins eye tests!
