Several friends have children who now need glasses and to say the selection available at most High Street opticians is woeful is understating the situation. If you don’t fancy Disney pink or Ben10 you’re often out of luck. This year, two ranges designed for children have really stood out as beacons in the desert.
Zoobug (shown above) whose 2012 sunglasses we featured back in the Spring. Their range of optical glasses for children are retro inspired and engineered for comfort.
The designs include fun styles like their signature daisy frames (pictured top) and more serious styles. There is a great selection of colours and I am fancying the dark mustard for myself.
Their frames come in sizes 0 – 12 years. The hinges flex and some styles have adjustable rubber tips making fitting easy and accurate. Available to buy online and at a handful of stockists.
Very French Gangsters have the quirky chic end of the market cornered.The shapes of their frames have me wishing for adult sizes. Their colours are classic using black and mock tortoise shell as well as a pale pink which I’m loving.
Their range comes in sizes 3 – 10 years. Their tips are adjustable silicone allowing easy fitting. Each style also has sunglasses available. You can buy online direct from Very French Gangsters or Little Fashion Gallery who have a selection.
Children’s glasses are definitely moving on and it’s only a matter of time before the mainstream catch up.
