Kylie Rocks Sydney with Eyewear Collection
mivision | 14 March 2017
Arriving on the runway to an explosion of gold glitter, Kylie said she’d wanted to design an eyewear collection because “I wear glasses everyday – either sunglasses or reading glasses – they are truly a part of my existence, so it was an opportunity to get involved, raid my drawer of glasses (for inspiration) – a collection spanning 20 years.”
Speaking to event host, E! Australia’s Ksenija Lukich, Kylie described her glasses style as, “Much like my own style – slightly unpredictable, the base is quite classic, then it depends on what one’s mood is, what you’re wearing, where you’re going… Styles come around – I would have bought glasses at markets – vintage glasses, designer glasses, cheap glasses, whatever, from wherever … and those are the things that gave me inspiration. I’m sure I will find more for my next collection.”
Within this elegant, feminine collection there is, understandably, a strong bias towards frames for smaller faces.
Specsaver’s Kylie collection was launched in the United Kingdom in early February. According to a Specsavers spokesperson, 7,000 frames were sold to UK customers within the first two weeks.
