I’ve aways had a rocky relationship with sunglasses. I LOVE them, they’re such a good accessory but there are not many sunglasses that do well on my face. Actually, I find it incredibly hard to find a pair that looks good on me and is exactly the shape and size and color that I like (and bangs make the whole story so much more complicated). I only have 4 pairs that I like and wear, although I wish I had a different one for every outfit. Us girls have many (many!) pairs of shoes, bags and jewelry, why shouldn’t we have different glasses and sunglasses to match our looks as well?
This is exactly what is the idea behind Eyelove as well, and I’m very happy to announce that at the moment I am designing 3 pairs of glasses/sunglasses for the Eyelove Fashion Collection, along with 6 other Dutch bloggers. I’m super excited to design my own sunglasses, exactly how I want them and the fact that they will be in stores and for a really good price makes it even better.
Eyelove is a Dutch brand with over 125 shop-in-shops in the Netherlands, selling high quality prescription glasses and sunglasses for only €49 – which makes it possible to have your glasses as a fashion accessory, preferably one for every outfit ;)
In the pictures above you’re looking at the kick-off which was also the start of the designing process. Harder than I thought! There are sooo many options, shapes, materials, colors, models when it comes to sunglasses. Luckily I already knew what I wanted and I can’t wait to see the first samples.
I’ll keep you updated on the project since there will be more design sessions, shoots and of course the launch!
The other bloggers went to Paris with Eyelove as well and unfortunately I couldn’t make it, but here’s a video of the kick-off and the Paris trip. Can’t wait to show you more soon!
