Essilor’s Road Pilot range combines comfort and safety.

September 2017

Essilor PilotEssilor Ltd is helping its independent partners capture market share in the emerging ophthalmic driving lens category with its new Road Pilot lens.

The branded driving lens combines two new technologies for the first time, in coating and design, to enhance confidence, comfort and driving performance, particularly during night-time, lower light and challenging weather conditions.

 

It is offered exclusively with a new Crizal Drive anti-reflective coating which reduces distracting glare from dashboard, modern headlights, street lights, traffic lights and set surfaces with up to 90% less reflections than a simple hard coat, to maximise clear vision.

It is available within unique single vision and Varilux forms, each tailored to deliver exceptional performance through design and coating. It can be enhanced with Transitions XTRActive which adapts to varying light conditions, so opticians can offer the ‘ultimate, 24-7’ driving lens giving clear vision from dawn to dusk to night-time.

Commercial director Randeep Gill said: “Driving without decent glare protection is risky and stressful. Statistics show night-time driving is when most accidents happen, is when 17 million UK drivers struggle to see, when 31% of UK motorists refuse to drive and 43% report blurred vision.

“This can be recommended for safety, comfort and confidence but also improved driving given impaired vision means slower reaction times behind the wheel. It’s giving the patient something new and filling a real need.”

The Crizal Drive coating is exclusive to the Road Pilot range and gives opticians another reason to explain the brand which set the standard for non-glare lenses 25 years ago.

Essilor PilotThe launch offers a reason to dispense Transitions XTRActive, its darkest photochromic lenses which is unique in activating instantly when the driver is exposed to visible light behind the windscreen, to cut sun glare and give comfort in the brightest light.

“It is a 24/7 solution for Britain’s 35 million motorists, and a new but big niche market,” said Gill. “The consumer multi-pair proposition is compelling as the Varilux lens is designed to be kept in the car where it is needed, and needed by law in France, Spain and Switzerland.

“Consumers can keep Road Pilot Transitions XTRActive in their car and keep their first pair for everyday use. Multi-pair sales are increasing in the UK, and our partners are outperforming the market average here as we train their staff on how to recommend to patients their best visual solution.”

Sales training on how to present the new product in multi-pair options will be offered under a new CET accredited training programme called Keys to Road Pilot.

The product is offered with a two year anti-scratch guarantee for the Crizal lenses, the “Love em or Leave em” guarantee on the Transitions XTRActive element of the lens and the usual Varilux non-adaptation guarantee for a suitable replacement

The Crizal brand will be reinforced through Essilor’s sponsorship of the Channel 4 weather forecast during September and October.

Camouflage Is the Inspiration of the latest Hda® Collection By Okia.

September 2017

Okia RefreshUniqueness and boldness: these are the keywords of the new “Camouflage Refresh” collection developed by OKIA.

Perfect for those people who love to push the boundaries of ordinary style, this amazing collection capitalizes on the timeless camouflage trend and gives it a modern, unconventional twist thanks to the creativity of the OKIA design team.

Camouflage prints, originally meant for military troops to confuse the enemy, are more and more popular not only among men but also in women’s fashion, where they are proposed in natural tones or with more unusual and dazzling colors.

OKIA revisits the classic camouflage pattern to produce a more refined and innovative outcome: lines become softer and colors blend harmoniously just like in a painting, while the design details feature a surprising high definition and 3-dimensional effect thanks to the HDA® Technology.

Moreover, the CSB (Crazy Sparkling Beauty) technique enriches the camouflage decoration with twinkling gold or silver foil that lights up the eyes gently whilst at the same time conferring dynamism to the frame.

Offered in a rich, warm color palette including olive green and crimson, “Camouflage Refresh” is a must-have for the next fall season.

Emerging Trends: Minimalism Reimagined by Red Rose from Ogi.

September 2017

Building upon a rich heritage of minimalistic design, Red Rose is teeming with excitement to announce the arrival of its Fall 2017 lineup.

This collection showcases a whole host of new styles that utilize revolutionary high-density acetate and industrial-quality stainless steel. Headlined by the Carrara and Diamante, these models blend classic silhouettes with contemporary colorways, and achieve a sleek and simple aesthetic with subtle details and original components.

Reimagining optical solutions for the modern minimalist, Red Rose’s Fall 2017 collection introduces timeless eyewear that responds to an emerging desire for considered design with a pared down look.

The Carrara

CarraraThis fiercely feminine cat-eye frame features a softly-upswept silhouette handmade from translucent high-density acetate—an ultra-lightweight material with extreme durability. The Carrara’s pastel colorway incorporates some of the season’s coolest hues, including Aloe Green and Rose Dust.

Stainless steel temples with a crosshatched pattern add visible texture, while adjustable tips—wrapped in acetate and capped with the iconic Red Rose emblem—elevate the comfort and style of this contemporized vintage-style frame.

The Diamante

DiamonteThe latest P3 frame introduced by Red Rose, the Diamante was masterfully designed with simplicity in mind. Carefully handcrafted from sturdy high-density acetate, this scholarly style has a keyhole bridge—a definitive mark of intellect—and a round silhouette with a defined, squared-off edge.

The textured stainless steel temples are attached with minimalistic rolling hinges that feature a screwless construction. This must-have model comes in a sophisticated colorway, too, led by Adriatic Teal and Crystal.

Marketing
Red Rose banners, counter cards, logo blocks, and mirrors are available upon request.

Beauty and Innovation in Balance with a new Stepper Frame

September 2017

Stepper SI 30113The SI-30113 has only been available in the UK for a very short time but is rapidly proving a favourite. From a design point, the frame’s appeal is clear yet the frame’s appeal goes far deeper than looks alone.

‘At first glance this frame has an instant attraction’, comments Peter Reeve, Managing Director STEPPER (UK) Ltd. ‘The SI-30113 brings together three winning elements.

Firstly the frame is on-trend with its ultra-thin plastic profile. Secondly the shape is fashionably large, but not over large, making it suitable to most faces. And thirdly STEPPER have added a pretty detail on the temple that appeals to those who want a modern frame that isn’t too plain and has some embellishment.

Great styling belies the technical innovation required to deliver this with quality and durability. Look close and the proven STEPPER mix of TX5 and Beta Titanium begin to revel themselves.

A TX5 front allows the frame to curve around the facial contours, resting with a feather-light touch on the bridge. Super slim Beta Titanium sides provide great strength combined with flexibility.

‘STEPPER select the best materials to deliver the job demanded of each frame part. Add to all this a weight of just 6.2g, suitability for most lens types and SI-30113’s hypoallergenic properties, and the frame is a clear winner,’ concludes Peter.

The SI-30113 is available in Rose Shell, Shell and Plum with complementary temple detailing.

MYKITA "LESSRIM", A Sense of Transparency.

September 2017

Mykita Lessrim MYKITA presents its most discreet and minimalistic eyewear collection to date. MYKITA LESSRIM is based on a barely visible construction creating ultra-light eyewear that blends seamlessly into the facial features.

MYKITA reinterprets the traditional rimless concept with the help of latest advancements in polishing technology. Ultra-fine rims hold the lenses without the need for perforation giving them a floating appearance.

The 0.5 millimetre wide stainless steel rim lies flush in the groove of the lens perimeter leaving a hint of a silver outline.

Pure shapes meet with subtle metallic colourways and understated functional detailing for a reduced, virtually translucent aesthetic. The tapered stainless steel temples feature an elongated acetate temple end to optimise the weight balance of the glasses.

A functional coating on the nose pads keeps the frame in place. This reduced material concept amounts to outstanding
lightness and comfort.

Launching as an eight-piece collection, MYKITA LESSRIM features seven optical models and one sun glass frame.

The range of archetypal shapes includes the classic panto EITO, rectangular models NOBU and KAITO, and the round KAYO. With its high mono bridge, MASAO presents a new spin
on a traditional masculine style. RYO is a double-bridge panto, and YOKO a larger round – both are available as an optical or sunglass frame. Sunglasses AIMI, a subtle butterfly shape, rounds off the selection.

La Matta: New Advertising Campaign For 2017

September 2017

La Matta LM3220 C2
“Animal Instinct” is the mantra behind the new advertising campaign by La Matta, the unmistakeable Area98 brand which has always stood out from the crown on account of its knack for combining excess with style.


The advertising campaign features an adult, modern, sensual woman whose femininity explodes in the images, accompanied by natural detailing such as ostrich and peacock feathers, which reflect the animal inspiration behind a collection of eyewear designed for those who want to give their personality a clear voice.


Colour is the unquestionable protagonist of the models in the collection: brilliant, intense shades merge with fine decorations inspired by the art of goldsmithing on the temples, illuminating the gaze of the La Matta woman and lending it a hint of bold sophistication.


La Matta is targeting the kind of eclectic, exuberant personality expressed in the new shots, which use patterning, shading and detailing to capture the very essence of feminine seduction.

New blink® triple action eye drops bring relief to sufferers of dry-feeling eyes.

August 2017

Blue Marlin from Blackfin
An estimated 68% of us suffer from some form of eye irritation such as dry-feeling, tired or itchy eyes.*

Now there is a new eye drop available to help bring lasting relief, new blink® Triple Action eye drops from Johnson & Johnson Vision.

Air conditioning, central heating and hours sitting in front of a computer screen with a reduced blink rate can play havoc with the eyes.

Hormonal changes are also a factor in a problem which many people rarely mention to their Eye Care Professional.

Help is available with these intensive eye drops which combine two soothing moisturisers with protective liposomes and Vitamin E.

Unlike some other eye drops new blink® Triple Action eye drops support all three layers of the eyes’ tear-film – helping soothing away feelings of dryness and irritation, boosting the eyes moisture levels and then helping to lock-in this moisture for greater protection.

Together this triple action formula helps to supplement and stabilise the tear-film.

Convenient to use and suitable for contact lens wearers, the drops can be used at any time throughout the day.

Special edition BLACKFIN collection for the blue marlin in Ibiza

August 2017

Blue Marlin from BlackfinBlackfin, the brand of titanium eyewear entirely designed and manufactured in Italy, has created a special edition capsule collection for the Blue Marlin Beach Club in Ibiza.

This famous venue, home to the most glamorous nightlife on the island, wanted to add to the range of exclusive products on offer to its guests and therefore, naturally turned to Blackfin as the top-of-the-range eyewear brand.

Blackfin will now have its own corner in the club selling a special edition of some of the best-selling sunglass models. Gold Beach BF784, Montego Bay BF774, San Diego BF766 and the unmistakeable SLOT BF801, star of the 2017 advertising campaign, will be personalised with the Blue Marlin logo laser-printed on the inside of the temple and on the lens. What’s more, for the summer season, all the staff of the club will be wearing Blackfin eyewear as they work under the hot Ibiza sun.

The Spanish island’s international clientele head to the Blue Marlin for an exclusive, sophisticated atmosphere in which every element, from the beach to the restaurant and the events offered for guests’ entertainment is specially selected to ensure a unique holiday experience full of fun.

This prestigious partnership confirms Blackfin as the ideal product for those in search of original, top quality, trend-setting eyewear.

Opened in 2004, the Blue Marlin is the smartest location on Ibiza. Styling at its very best made it an immediate success and the trendiest place on the island.

Guests can bask in the sun on the beach in luxurious loungers, sip a cocktail at the bar, eat at the restaurant, relax in the lounge space and listen to and dance to the rhythms of music mixes created by DJs from all over the world. Blue Marlin Ibiza is today a world-famous brand with branches on the Ibiza Marina, in Los Cabos Mexico and in Dubai.

Beautiful Innovation comes from Stepper.

July 2017

SI-30092 by StepperThe initial appeal of the STEPPER SI-30092 lies in its simple contemporary design. Embellishment free styling derives its attractiveness from understated lines with the frame’s detail delivered through clever material selection and colouration.

The super-comfortable TX5 front is given a graduated finish in a choice of rich colours; from a deep ‘Raspberry’, ‘Ocean’ or ‘Burgundy’ at the top, to clear at the bottom. The graduated front concept is more often associated with classic frames, yet here it is applied, with aesthetic success, to a totally on-trend shape.

The flexible Beta-Titanium sides negate the need for spring hinges, keeping weight to a minimum and allowing for the most elegant, ultra slim temple profiles. A tactile matte finish is applied here, adding a subtle visual twist and giving a ‘nice-to-touch’ characteristic.

“This a great example of the effective combination of TX5 and Titanium that highlights the STEPPER brand’s technical prowess,” states Peter Reeve, Managing Director STEPPER UK. “Delivering real and valuable benefits to the wearer through design, materials and processes has always driven STEPPER’s innovation.”

Enhancing its appeal are that both TX5 and Titanium materials have hypoallergenic properties which add appeal for those for whom some materials can prove problematic.

The SI-30092 (pictures) has a choice of 52 or 54 eye sizes and hits the scales at just 6.1g.
