    Written by Fashion Tales

    On 4 April Specsavers will launch its latest design collaboration with Vivienne Westwood. The Vivienne Westwood collection is exclusively available at Specsavers and includes 13 optical frames and 3 sunglasses. All optical and sun frames can be customized into sunglasses, opticals, and tinted lenses as well, so the actual collection is even bigger. The stylish frames are partially made from Eastman Acetate Renew, which is a combination of recycled single-use plastic and bio-based materials that come from sustainably sourced wood pulp.

    Design
    This is a collection like no other; the Vivienne Westwood eyewear collection takes inspiration from key design signatures of the British fashion house. The contemporary frame range of glasses and sunglasses features designs and styles for everyone. The frames are adorned with iconic prints and graphics that are centered around the Westwood orb, and are crafted out of acetate and metals, in a wide range of shapes and styles. Each frame also features a signature Vivienne Westwood design; from bold tartan prints, monochrome DIY style graffiti, V-cut temples to Rococo inspired detailing.

    Material
    In line with the Vivienne Westwood’s ethos, the collection has been developed with consideration to its design, durability, and sustainability. Each frame is partially made from Eastman Acetate Renew, which is a combination of recycled single-use plastic and bio-based materials that come from sustainably sourced wood pulp. Specsavers Head of product Caroline Schiller says, ” Specsavers is proud to add this brand to its designer collection! Vivienne Westwood’s exclusive collection looks fabulous. It has the famous iconic Vivienne Westwood prints and graphics. The collection consists of different shapes and styles, so everyone can find a frame that suits their taste and face. We hope that we can surprise and help our customers to find a perfect pair of Vivienne Westwood glasses”.

  • Lizzo Revolutionizes Shapewear with the Launch of YITTY

    Written by Yasmine

    The three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Lizzo adds Fashion Entrepreneur to her career with the launch of her very first business – a revolutionary new shapewear brand launching April 12, 2022.

    Named after her childhood moniker, the launch of YITTY marks a lifelong dream come true. For nearly three years, Lizzo has put her heart and soul into building the size-inclusive brand from the ground up — all based on the principles of self-love, radical inner confidence, and effortless, everyday wear. YITTY marks an industry first: no-shame, smile-inducing shapewear designed for all body types, with sizes ranging from size 6X to XS. That blurs the lines of inner and outerwear. Every piece is designed to celebrate, hug, and love every single body. 

    Instead of thinking about size in this linear way, we’re thinking about it on a spectrum where everyone is included. Everyone’s size is just their size. It’s not high, it’s not low. It’s not big, it’s not small. It’s just your size,” said Lizzo. 

    Lizzo is no stranger to shapewear, admittedly she has spent most of her life being told to “reshape” her body based on society’s made up (not to mention unattainable) standards. “I felt that I was constantly being told through TV and magazines that my body wasn’t good enough. And, in order to be considered ‘acceptable’ I had to inflict some sort of pain upon it to fit into an archetype of beauty. Because of this, I’ve been wearing shapewear for a long time, maybe since I was in fifth or sixth grade.” 

    Just like her boundary-pushing and empowering music, Lizzo made a firm decision to no longer feel ashamed about her natural curves and contours. Instead, she wanted to create her own collection of body-hugging pieces that everyone would want to rock in the bedroom, at the club, to brunch with the girls, or simply chilling at home. Think of YITTY as a true celebration of your body.


    I was tired of seeing this sad, restrictive shapewear that literally no-one wanted to wear. I had an
    epiphany like, ‘who can actually do something about this?’ I decided to take on the challenge of allowing
    women to feel unapologetically good about themselves again,” said Lizzo. 


    YITTY debuts with three distinctive drops: NEARLY NAKED, a lightweight seamless collection designed to comfortably shape and firm your natural curves all day, every day; MESH ME, smoothing mesh styles that blend fashion with function, designed to wear as underwear or outerwear; and MAJOR LABEL, an assortment of everyday lifestyle pieces that are super soft, super bossy, and super YITTY. collections. Plus, the company’s unique business model would allow her to offer affordable price points.
