Specsavers launches Carla Zampatti Eyewear Collection
Earlier this week, media were treated to a runway show at Auckland’s Clooney Restaurant to showcase the new Carla Zampatti for Specsavers eyewear collection.
Specsavers continues to build upon the success of its past collaborative ranges with Australian designers and now announces a new collaboration with a true fashion pioneer, Italian born Australian fashion designer and business woman – Carla Zampatti. Exclusive to Specsavers and available in stores nationwide from 12 October, the collection includes 14 optical and eight prescription sunglasses.
Representing a new Australian collaboration for the iconic designer, whose legacy spans over five decades in the fashion spotlight, the range has been designed by Carla in true Carla Zampatti style. The collection is a nod to iconic moments in fashion, reinvented for the modern day woman who wants to stand apart from the crowd in her glasses.
Retro-inspired classics from past decades are reinterpreted with fresh, contemporary flair, making them highly wearable and unique. True to Carla’s signature, many of the designs exude a gracefulness, and a sense of fluidity, defined by easy-to-wear shapes created with extraordinary craftsmanship and attention to detail.
For Carla, the new collection has been designed with the modern woman in mind. “I’ve designed a collection I would wear. It is a collection that is both practical and flattering, offering versatile solutions for the office, home or simply a day at the beach. Every occasion, every woman, regardless of age or style.”
Bold yet timeless, frames range from a traditional palette of black and white, to feminine pastels and bold splashes of colour. Quality finishes and luxurious materials like shiny gold accents and velvet matte finishes offer the wearer a selection that is both contemporary and chic. Each pair is adorned with Carla’s statement signature branding.
Carla is passionate about eyewear, she wears her sunglasses both indoors and outdoors. “I buy sunglasses by the dozen”, says Carla. “I love sunglasses, I always have, that’s why the idea of designing an eyewear range really appealed to me. That’s why I partnered with Specsavers, so I had more to wear!”
Priced from $299 for two pairs single vision, the range is available in Specsavers’ stores nationally, right now: carla-zampatti
