I received these sunglasses as a gift – however all views are my own.
Need a new pair of sunglasses as a Christmas present? Or for skiing? Or looking to treat yourself during the after Christmas sales? Well, look no further as EyeWearThese has already got a lot of designs on sale. I know how hard is to find online retailers for prescription glasses or even sunglasses. A lot of people wary of it. My main concern is always the authenticity. How should I know that they are going to be originals for that discounted rate? Well, the trick is never look for the cheapest possible online stores because chances are: they are selling fake items. TrustPilot reviews are a good indication and also if someone can tell you: yep, Iv’e bought my sunglasses from them and all was good. So now I’m here to help you dear reader.
I’ve recently been gifted with a pair of sunglasses from EyeWearThese and so I picked a pair of Persol. I always admired Persol sunglasses, but I never actually owned one (apart from one men’s model in my early twenties which I adored anyway). Persol is one of the oldest eyewear companies in the world and their optical frames and sunglasses are handmade in Italy. Originally catered to pilots and sports drivers and they are not plastic, they are made of cellulose acetate which is a material derived from cotton. It’s a piece of perfect, iconic Italian design. My obsession with the black and white Italian movies of the 60’s and design pieces perfected to the extraordinary meets in a pair of Persol.
And luckily, these days they make gorgeous models for ladies. My sunglasses are part of the Reflex Edition which are inspired by cameras. They have a vintage look and feel and feature retro flat metal winged temples. The Meflecto temples (famous Persol design feature) ensure a secure and flexible fit at all times. But I only know these because the EyeWearThese offers lots of information on every model’s page with correct measurements and further details to make sure that you have all the information to make a purchase. There’s even a face shape guide on the page to help you with the decision.
I’m usually so picky with my sunglasses and wear them almost all the time when out and about like a real Italian (my eyes are very sensitive to UV rays). I think they are a perfect fit! So here’s me, looking forward to our next holiday we have just booked and feeling like a movie star in my iconic sunnies:
