Glasses of the Week: New Martin&Martin!

This fabulous new design from Martin&Martin looks amazing on Prue Scott!

Prue's glasses are very important in her career as a writer. The new model, pictured here in matte black with a sand interior, had only been on the shelf a day or so but as soon as Prue tried them on we knew they were the ones!

As far as we know, Prue is the first person in Australasia to be wearing them, but surely not the last.

Glasses of the Week: Betty Keller

At 97 years young, Betty Keller looks as stylish as ever in her new Claire Goldsmith glasses!

To make things easier for her, we helped select some frames along with her daughter Christine, which Betty then tried on in her car. 

Once her lenses were fitted, the chosen frame was also fitted to Betty in the car - now that's what we call door to door service!

We hope you enjoy your beautiful new glasses Betty :)

What's On: Light Show

The much-anticipated Light Show has arrived at Auckland Art Gallery from London, and if the sell-out advance tickets are any indication, it will be well worth checking out from 11 October. Featuring 18 artists spanning 6 decades, these light installations play with senses and emotions and have been receiving rave reviews. 

We're also loving the use of glasses in their promotional material!
