Reading glasses may well become the next trend within the trend setters of the entertainment and film industry.
The great Rock and Roll icon Elvis Presley (would turn 80 last week) established the trend more than half a century ago: sunglasses were and still are an essential accessory, both to the entertainment elite as well as to the fashion conscious anonymous. After all, if the eyes are the windows to the soul, a century of show business fads comes and goes never saw a nice pair of stylish shades get out of fashion. Especially when business is about mingling with the populace to grab that tasty burger downtown.
Robert Downey Jr. (pictured), Lupita Nyong’o and Patricia Arquette – who took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in Boyhood, were among the stars with specs in their eyes.
This is good news to us at Euro-Optics Uk and good news to reading glasses manufacturers and reading glasses distributers around the world.
If sunglasses can be mysterious, even evoke a bit of debauchery and excess, a pair of stylish reading glasses epitomise adulthood and intellectuality. They also add gravitas to that old jumper and trainers weekend look.
