Focused on taking British design to the next level, frame supplier Eyespace, have followed up their award-winning sunwear debut with two unquestionably fashion-forward prescription sunglass collections that are set to shape style throughout 2017.

Exclusively available to independent opticians, the designer Cocoa Mint and Jensen sunwear ranges - which launch in January and are available to pre-order now - have been developed in conjunction with future trend forecasts and targeted market research.

Of the new-season collections, Eyespace Managing Director, Jayne Abel told us:

“Following on from the incredible and very exciting success of our sunwear debut last year, the next generation products for Cocoa Mint and Jensen sunwear have been designed to keep independent opticians at the forefront of today’s fast pace of fashion. Incredibly well structured, highly fashionable and commercially developed, the new collections showcase each brand perfectly, adding big hits of designer style to practices nationwide”.

“With lens treatments and specialist material finishes continuing to drive trends this coming year, prescription sunglasses will remain a major and growing frame category in 2017. With that in mind, we continue to invest strongly in product combinations that will appeal to today’s consumer looking for high-fashion, style and form from their sunwear.”

Relaxed Glamour

The Cocoa Mint Sunwear collection comprises 22 fashion-forward pieces that bring the brand’s distinctive style of ‘relaxed glamour’ to life. An utterly desirable selection of acetate and metal pieces, the 2017 collection radiates modern femininity, adding a touch of on-trend appeal - as well as subtly drawing on the glitter trend that proved a highlight on the 2017 catwalks.

A true show-stopper, CMS 2027 turns the ordinary into the extraordinary with its diamond encrusted sides. Genuine Swarovski crystal fabric is expertly inlayed into the full temple length for maximum sparkle, while the on-trend eyeshape takes its statement style from Italian fashion.

Providing the complete couture experience, a logo branded box, case and cloth is provided with each Cocoa Mint Sunwear frame.

A Style Upgrade

Super-smart and technically advanced, Jensen Sunwear maintains the Jensen brand’s iconic ‘jet-set’ feel. Instinctively modern, this range of 18 pieces refines men’s sunwear, providing practices with key looks that add contemporary edge. Designed from the bridge outwards for ultimate wearer comfort, each piece delivers tailored style to the practice portfolio: the finest Italian acetates, high-fashion lens treatments, specialist materials including matte carbon fibre, and skull-fit temples see this range stand out for all the right reasons.

With a modern new eye shape, contemporary colour blocking and a timeless tortoiseshell eye front JNS 7016 is amped-up through luxe black temples. The eyeshape is designed to complement a variety of face shapes and the authentic green lenses are a cool finishing touch.

Each Jensen Sunwear frame comes complete with a branded sports-inspired case and cleaning cloth.

Fashion and form remain the hallmark for both sunwear ranges, as it does the selection of attractive merchandising materials, including exclusive social media content, which stockists can take advantage of.

Such is their styling and appeal, each of the new frames are suitable for sale with plano or prescription lenses. Each piece provides optimal UV protection, with optical quality CR39 or UV400 lenses. Additionally, Jensen features select models with polarised and polarised AR coated lenses for added luxury and upgrade options.
