On the lookout for a new pair of glasses? This new range by Irish designer Orla Kiely is definitely worth trying on

Irish designer Orla Kiely has just launched a new range of striking glasses at Specsavers. Consisting of 16 frames (with a mix of optical and sun lenses), her collection is both sophisticated and bold.

Orla Kiely is famed for encapsulating nostalgic, mid-century modern-inspired designs with a 21st-century flair, and she brings a playful approach to the frames. Full of colour, each design draws on everyday elements, such as plants and animals. As experts at Specsavers say, the collection “is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face”.

The frames

Priced at €129, the Orla Kiely collection of eyewear is available from stores nationwide.

Popular frames in the collection include a striking design in an on-trend round shape, with a stylish two-tone front in warm tortoiseshell and olive green. The sides feature a black, brown and cream pattern with stand-out gold brand detailing at the hinges.

For another catching look, the collection also includes stylish chunky tortoiseshell frames. The round shape has a hint of cat-eye, and for a little added colour, the interior has a delicate orange floral pattern.

Alternatively, these thin, circular frames are perfect if you prefer a dainty look. Its interior boasts a subtle floral pattern for a touch of femininity.

If square frames are more your style, why not try these brown Orla Kiely frames with green, leafy detail?

Or, make a statement with this stylishly transparent pair:

In a statement, Kerril Hickey, Chairperson of Specsavers Ireland, said, “We’re thrilled to debut another stylish brand to add to our ever-expanding designer collection. The Orla Kiely collection is so vibrant in design and couldn’t come at a better time to brighten up these wintery November days.

“We can’t wait to see the reaction from our customers and hope the range will encourage them to try something new.”
