The first few months of the year are always such a busy time at Respectacle Company. Most of the trade shows are held between January and March, and we try to attend as many as we possibly can. It’s important for us to keep abreast of emerging trends, as well as any new developments within […]
As the clocks spring forward into the next month of the year, April arrives, bringing with it some of the most changeable weather of the entire year. Get ready for lovely bright sunshine with clear blue skies one day, to cooler temperatures and heavy rain the next. With this in mind we wanted to tell you about a fabulous new product which Seiko lenses are now offering. We think it’s a great addition to their portfolio of already great optical lenses, and the perfect solution for spectacle wearers who have to deal with Britain’s changeable weather.
March is one of our favourite months of the year. It’s a month of new beginnings, with fresh new growth popping up in the garden and days starting to draw out as we approach the first day of spring. As the winter months start to fade behind us, we look forward to the start of British summer time and hopefully better weather and warm sunny days.
Another reason we love March so much is because it’s a month chockfull of awareness days. Marie Curie hold their daffodil appeal this month; the Downs Syndrome Association have their awareness week (21st), marking it by wearing odd socks. It’s also World Glaucoma Week (10th-16th), International Women’s Day (8th) and World Book Day (7th). And let’s not forget that March is Alison’s birthday month too.
As February is known as the month of love, and Paris is famous for being the city of romance, we thought we would showcase one of our beautiful feminine collections from Paris.
As ‘dry January’ draws to an end and a lot of people pat themselves on the back for doing so well, before you pop the cork on that bottle that’s been looking at you for the last month, just remember it’s all about moderation. Something to consider, especially if your New Year’s Resolution includes adopting a healthier lifestyle.
Making healthy lifestyle changes shouldn’t just include eating healthy and exercising more.
It’s a brand new year and for many of us January brings with it good intentions and resolutions. As we step on the scales after over indulging throughout the festive season, our resolutions for the coming year – and probably yours too – is to eat better, do a bit more exercise and generally look after our physical and mental health. And that includes making sure we have regular eye examinations. Yes, even opticians need them too!
We’ve recently added a new eyewear brand to our ever growing collection of luxury spectacles called FEB 31st. We at Respectacle Company are so excited about this beautiful handmade Italian collection, so naturally we wanted to introduce the product to our lovely customers and explain the concept, the manufacturing process and the philosophy behind the company.
Every year we attend most of the optical trade fairs around the world, so we can view the latest releases from our tried and tested brands. But it also gives us the opportunity to seek out new and innovative collections emerging onto the market. As you can imagine, we see a lot of new and interesting eyewear collections. You can tell a lot about the quality of the spectacle frames by visiting these trade fairs. It’s the best platform for frame companies to showcase their products. Read more
As much as they love wearing spectacles, we know that many of our customers find having to carry different types of specs for different activities and weather conditions a bit of a pain to say the least. We totally get how frustrating and inconvenient having to wear corrective lenses can be, especially during the summer months when we tend to be more mobile and active compared to the rest of the year.
Our eyes are the second most complex organ in our body after the brain, so it’s very important to look after them. As we age through life we become more aware of our eyes aging too. Many of us are prescribed reading spectacles after a certain age as the muscles and the lens in our eyes stiffens and doesn’t respond as well as they once did.
Our eyes are one of the body’s most remarkable and important parts. Not only do they give us one of our five senses – sight – our eyes are one of the few parts of our body that can’t be replaced. So it’s really important to look after them as we only have one pair to last a lifetime.
