  • Just Cool Designer Glasses

    25 Jul 2019

    Source: Twitter @Versace
    Eyeglasses have gone a long way since their inception and since they became part of fashion some 80 years ago. Fashion per definition is "a popular trend, especially in styles of dress and ornament or manners of behavior". But in real life, fashionable things often are introduced by designers before they become popular. Popularity is achieved via creative and aggressive marketing. And as of lately, with the help of social media and peer sharing. Since social media became part of our everyday life, fashion has been moving with unprecedented speed, often changing in the course of 12-24 months. For example, retro-round eyeglasses were introduced by designers around five years ago, and just a year later they became mainstream. Ultra-large, heavy plastic square glasses had two year popularity life. Most recent huge rimless and triangular glasses are entering as we speak and may reach their height already next year.

    We at Illuminata Eyewear closely watch trends and embrace them with our entire DNA. Trends are in our blood, and advocating them is part of our procession. However, we love to stay on the thin line between purely trendy and reasonably nice. Trends often and lately even more so, are created to make a statement and attract clicks/shares. If it's ugly, it will often achieve social media shares, but no way will become popular among customers. We understand such marketing dynamics and choose glasses for our stock wisely. 

    Here are the top picks of cool and very cool for this summer:

  • Sunglasses and Purses

    2 Jul 2019
    Sunglasses serve not only as vision aids but also as a fashion accessory. Historically, purses served as main fashion accessories, but with the invention of sunglasses, the cute vision aids have quickly become must-have items for every woman and men. All fashion brands take sunglasses design seriously and try to incorporate them into the current fashion look. Sunglasses are important because unlike shoes or even purses, they attract the most attention. Maybe because of that, Tom Ford paid special attention to sunglasses when he launched his brand. Sunglasses are the best selling Tom Ford item from the entire collection.

    2019 is a special year because sunglasses have the most extraordinary design ever. The complex geometrical shape and multi-layered lenses color make them not only the object or art but also the object of very complicated scientifically powered manufacturing.

    Also to best selling aviators, plastic rectangular sunglasses and retro round sunglasses, this year we see the triangular shape.

    Mirror lens continues to be popular, especially in advertising. It looks modern and futuristic. Mirror lens also looks dressy. Personally me, I am a big fan of mirror lens. It needs a bit more maintenance with cleaning, but it looks very beautiful and is very much worth the extra effort. If your mirror lens gets scratched, many brands sell glasses replacement lenses. Among them is Prada, Versace, Armani, Tiffany, Bvlgari and a few more. For a reasonable price, you can upgrade your sunglasses to make them look like new, or even completely different by choosing a different color.


    Hats play well with sunglasses too. It's great to see a revival of hats in modern fashion. For over a decade, hats were used less often by designers until recently. Sun protection became more of a subject, and women and men alike are looking for fashionable ways to cover the skin from harmful UV rays. Hats and sunglasses in a way, play a similar purpose. They go hand in hand!

    Visit Illuminata Eyewear with your favorite accessories to pair them with fashionable sunglasses.

  • Ultra-light Sun Lenses is a New Trend

    6 Jun 2019

    2019 is a very exciting year for sunglasses fashion: so many new trends and styles from the world leading designer brands. We continue seeing a growing number of brands putting the sunglasses on the models during the fashion week shows. And more advertising of clothing now includes sunglasses. This advertising strategy makes sunglasses a connected accessory to the overall image or looks that the designer was trying to achieve. 

    A new and exciting trend is a light lens. We have some at our store, and they look fabulous. Firstly, the light lens looks very mysterious, romantic, and chic. Secondly, it is very comfortable as you are not always under the brightest sun. When living in the city, you find yourself mostly in the shade, between the building, under the trees or the clouds.

    The lightly tinted lens is what a city person needs. When you wear such sunglasses, you don't feel like taking them off at all. When you get into the building, into your car, your lightly tinted sunglasses don't appear too dark.

    The key with lightly tinted sunglasses is the size. The larger they are, the more comfortable they are. Since people can still see through your eyes, you don't need to be concerned as coming through too shielded. They will become part of your face!

    Many brands are making a collection of lightly tinted sunglasses. Among our favorites are Dior, Prada, Tom Ford, Roberto Cavalli, Carrera and many more. 

  • Rimless Glasses are Back BIG Time

    29 May 2019

    It has been a while when rimless glasses took a break in popularity. Once very popular in the early and mid-2000s they seem to have phased away during the last ten years. Maybe it's because designers started to push for more definition by making thicker, bolder frames. Or maybe everyone just got too tired of seeing them. But to our surprise, this year rimless glasses are making a huge comeback and in a BIG way.

    When I say BIG, I mean huge. Take a look at these Dior's. Just how adorable they are. Dior always has a way of making something unusual look natural and stylish. There was no exception with the Dior Stellaire collection. Thin rimmed glasses and sunglasses were widely advertised and now are among the most sought after by fashion queens and kings. This year the Stellaire collection is expanded by adding a few rimless models. Large round, square, pentagons other shapes all rimless are making a debut. They sort of look retro, modern, but above all, they look relevant to today's style. It's luxurious simplicity that is the main theme for many mega brands this year. How can you look humble, but polished and sleek? By picking the right pair of glasses.

    I must also mention that such large rimless glasses are very comfortable as they provide a very large vision area. How do you make sure that lenses don't chip? By getting Polycarbonate lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are a must for rimless glasses if you want to make them last a long time.

    Another great advantage in getting rimless glasses by Dior is that one day you can always bring them back into Illuminata Eyewear and get new lenses in a different shape! How is it possible? It's because rimless glasses don't have a rim, so the lens is held by the temples. Cut a different lens and install into your beloved Dior temples. You will get a new pair of glasses beyond recognition. 

    At Illuminata Eyewear we have stock for the most popular this year Dior Stellaire glasses. Come to try them on or buy online.

  • Ray-Ban Makes Cutest Kids Designer Glasses!

    23 May 2019

    Ray-Ban kids glasses
    With summer approaching fast, it's the rush sunglasses season. We see many adults shopping for sunglasses. But what about kids? Protecting their precious eyes from harmful UV rays is just as important as yours. Instead of getting them the next toy, you will do double good by getting them one pair of high-quality sunglasses.

    Let's break it down what makes kids sunglasses high quality. First and most important is the lens. There is a big difference between high-quality sun lenses and low quality. High-quality sun lenses are coated with several layers of UV protection. In high-quality sunglasses, those protective coatings will last through extreme wear, cleanings, washings, and abuse. They will not wash off or come off with even very abusive wear. Low-quality sunglasses may appear cute and nice at the beginning, but the UV protective coatings may not even be there. Remember, UV coatings are not tinted. They are not visible when you look at or through the lens. They are applied during the manufacturing process. Many people think that if sunglasses are nice and dark, they provide good sun protection. This is a huge misconception because lens color has nothing to do with the UV protection. Even good quality clear prescription lenses are made with UV protective coatings. Low-quality sunglasses may not have UV protective coating, or it will easily come off.

    What happens if the UV coating is not there, but the lens remains dark? The pupil will dilate letting even more UV through. It's worse than not having sunglasses on. So, do the right thing for your children, get them high-quality sunglasses.

    Secondly, high-quality sunglasses are made from hand made acetate that is easy to adjust for the best comfort. Kids tend to run around a lot, which may disfigure sunglasses. Good quality sunglasses will not break easily, even if gone through multiple impacts, falling and throwing. The temples will not snap off, and they will be easy to adjust to the right fit.

    Lastly, the style. Kids and parents must find sunglasses appealing to enjoy them. High-quality sunglasses are made to enjoy!

    At Illuminata Eyewear, we have many kids sunglasses in stock by Ray-Ban. Ray-Ban is the worlds most valuable brand of sunglasses that also makes affordable, high-quality sunglasses for children. Visit our store to try our stock or buy online.

    25 Apr 2019

    We know the pain of people who just want small glasses. The modern shapes are gone wild, huge and for some unpractical. If you happen to have small face or strong prescription huge glasses will not be a good idea. You can still get them, but lenses might come out distorted, thick and heavy. We have customers who simply don't care, fashion and trend is above all.

    But for many staying concervative and practical is above fashion and trend. It is however, becoming a little challenge lately. No worries, at Illuminata Eywear we've got your covered. We carry a few brands that specialize on smaller sizes such as well known Canadian brands KliiK and Bertelli.

Lightec has many sizes, small is not their specialty, but we chose a few that are size 50 and under for customer who would like them. Black, brown and navy are often men's favorite colors. Clear is also becoming a trend and looks excellent with thicker lenses.
