DESIGNER chic has come to Solihull as TV style guru Gok Wan’s debut collection of retro glasses is unveiled exclusively at Specsavers.

GW by Gok Wan showcases 30 different styles, which draw on fashion influences from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. The result is an iconic collection of fashionable designer frames, for just £99 per pair.

Sukhi Drake, store director of Specsavers in Chelmsley Wood, said: ‘We’re so excited to be stocking this fabulous new collection. The frames are very eclectic but easy to wear and really make a statement. We have fully trained frame stylists in store who can help you pick the perfect pair.’

Taking cues from style icons - past and present - and putting his own twist on them has enabled Gok to appeal to fashion-conscious customers looking for vintage specs that make a statement.

Gok says: ‘My aim was to create a capsule collection of glasses that would look at home on any catwalk but, crucially, was wearable and affordable.

“I sought inspiration from the 40s through to the 70s as these were amazing periods in fashion that drew upon all sorts of shapes, colours and patterns.’
