Kate Moss made Ambassador for Vogue Eyewear

Kate Moss is the new ambassador for Vogue eyewear.  Quite fitting really, as Kate is one of the models to be featured most frequently on the front of Vogue magazine.  Vogue has involved Ms Moss in the design of the eyewear pieces and you can certainly see her influence.  Vogue frames are sassy and cool, much like the Kate Moss clothing range.  The Big Optician has just received the latest delivery of Vogue frames and we are loving them. 

Madonna sacks Versace

Rumour has it that Madonna has had a big fall out with Versace!

We have heard it on the grapevine that she is insisting on only wearing Mui Mui Noir sunglasses instead! As we have already reported last month, Madonna was loving the new style, but now she's taken it one step further with only wearing her new fave designer!

It just so happens that The BIG Optician have the exact same sunglasses in store and in stock! Pop down and see how you look with the material girls style!

 


Lindberg the choice for The Jury's new QC

Anyone watching the recent ITV series The Jury, can't have failed to have admired the Lindberg rimless spectacles worn by Julie Walters.

Julie starred as Emma Watts QC in the compelling, character-based drama screened last week and was wearing a very flattering Lindberg titanium rimless frame with red acetate sides. Lindberg rimless glasses are of the lightest and most comfortable spectacles in the world and are favoured by many celebs and others in the public eye. Since the screening of The Jury we have had lots of enquiries about which frame Julie Walters was wearing.

We are pleased to confirm we are one of Newcastle's few suppliers of Lindberg spectacles and we currently have that frame in stock.


Material Girl goes Miu Miu

The Big Optician girls have gone crazy with excitement about the all-new Miu Miu eye wear collection.  There were literally screams of joy as the new Miu Miu frames and sunglasses were unveiled to us.  Miuccia Prada has done all the glamorous ladies out there proud.  Her new Miu Miu collection of eyewear is as stunningly different as it is breathtaking.  Her clever use of materials (gold leaf within hand polished acetate in the Noir sunglass range) and 40's inspired styling, makes for a unique and luxury look.  Madonna, the original Material Girl snatched herself a pair to wear at the recent red-carpet launch event, and who can blame her?


Ray-Ban 3447 Sunglasses

We have just received the fabulous Ray-Ban 3447 sunglasses, as worn below by Henry Holland and Pixie Geldolf.  The Ray-Ban 3447 was recommended in The Sunday Times Style Magazine (30/10/2011) as 'THE sunglass frame that suits all faces'.  And believe me, they are absolutely right!

The 3447 is a round-eye, metal sunglass frame, and is a refreshing move away from the ubiquitous Aviator and Wayfarer styles. Fashionistas everywhere are suddenly flocking for this new round-eye look.  Hurry down to The Big Optician, at less than RRP and at a price that includes custom fitting and a comprehensive guarantee, the Ray-Ban 3447 is selling very fast!


Prada Swings In!

We're ecstatic to announce we've just received the new Prada specs collection (as announced we would be on this blog a couple of weeks ago) and they are looking super cool.

We've had a delivery of the best selling Prada frames and they are already proving to be one of our hottest sellers!! The flattering shapes and colours are truly magnificent and for women who crave eyewear that's stylish as well as on-trend, these Prada frames will certainly bring that extra wow factor to any girl's appearance.

Make sure you pop down to try them on for yourselves!

Prada Swing Collection

We’ve just looked at the new Prada AW 2011 eyewear collection. WOW!  The breathtaking collection includes 7 ‘Prada Swing’ – the fabulous ‘60s’ inspired styles.  Think ‘Madmen’, think glamour, think sophistication and you’ll have an inkling of what this collection is all about.

Targeted at the discerning Prada customer looking for contemporary luxury and bold design.  They challenge the status quo with its daring sweeps and feminine lines.

They were launched in Joe’s Pub in New York City, and the influence of the glamour of 60’s Maddison Avenue really shows through. Katie Holmes is a big fan, she’s one of several celebs already wearing these pieces. ‘Prada Swing’ appears to women who just love to make a statement.

To the glamorous ladies of Newcastle: prepare to be blown away, the ‘Prada Swing’ styles arrive in store any day soon...


George Clooney - The Ides of March

Old blue eyes is back.....hurrah!  George Clooney fans can soon feast their eyes when his latest movie hits the cinemas this Autumn.  ‘The Ides of March’ was very well received by critics at the 68th Venice Film Festival this week.  George plays an American senator in this Machiavellian dog-eat-dog political drama.  The all-star cast includes Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Wood and Ryan Gosling.  Photos of the cast taken before the gala screening showed George and Paul both shielding their Ides, sorry eyes, from the scorching Venice sunshine by wearing Tom Ford, while Marisa and Ryan were both sporting Ray-Ban Aviators.  Looking very much like an advert for The Big Optician!


Can’t get enough of Rose Byrne’s style

Rose Byrne shot to fame as the stylish, glamorous young lawyer in ‘Damages’.  It was reported that she was dressed head to toe in Prada for every one of her scenes in the gripping US TV drama, where she absolutely shone playing opposite the Machiavellian character played by Glen Close.  If you haven’t seen Damages, you are really missing out.  Get it now on DVD!

This summer Rose took another lead role, this time in ‘Bridesmaids’ where she also played a successful, slick professional.  You could be forgiven for thinking that Rose would never venture out without being totally clad in couture.  How refreshing to see her sporting a really cool off-beat style while strolling the East Village in New York City this week, days before Hurricane Irene hit.  Rose’s style is vintage-inspired, topped off with the ubiquitous original Ray-Ban Wayfarer. Looking very cool...
