Banish the winter blues as Specsavers unveils a new designer collection from Orla Kiely. The stunning range of glasses and sunglasses comprises 15 frames – 13 optical and two sun. They’re priced at €129 each and are available now.

Orla Kiely is famed for encapsulating nostalgic mid-century modern inspired designs with a 21st-century flair. Playful in approach and full of colour, each design draws on everyday elements, from plant life to animals, creating a collection that is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.

Chairperson of Specsavers Ireland, Kerril Hickey comments: “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 days. “We can’t wait to see the reaction from our customers and hope the range will encourage them to try something new.

Speaking about her latest collaboration with Specsavers, Orla Kiely said: “I am thrilled to be able to bring my unique and fun designs of optical eyewear and sunglasses to the Irish market. It feels particularly meaningful as so many of my designs are inspired by my childhood growing up in Dublin. I was particularly influenced by vivid memories of Irish colours and nature. Hopefully, you will enjoy the collection as much as I have enjoyed creating it.”

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.
