Royal Spectacles

As this is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, we thought we would focus on a ‘royal spectacle’ of a different kind.  We are all very familiar seeing images of the Queen wearing her brightly coloured ensembles but have you ever remarked upon her glasses?

Her Majesty the Queen has been wearing Silhouette glasses since 1982 and since 1998 one particular style she favoured over many years was model 1899 from the Silhouette range.  More recently you may have seen the Queen wearing a Lindberg frame.  The simplicity of design and beautiful lightweight frames are synonymous with Silhouette and Lindberg spectacles.  Silhouette in particular is worldwide renowned for exceptional eyewear and rimless, lightweight glasses and has attracted many famous celebrities among its wearers not just royalty.

As a Silhouette stockist we would be very happy to introduce you to our latest eyewear collection.  From rimless, half-rim or full rim glasses the Silhouette eyewear brand combines incredible attention to detail.  We are sure you will be impressed by the quality.
