  • Spring 2021 is About Small Business

    8 May 2021

    Fashion is moving on in 2021. The world is opening up, and new hopes are rising across the globe. While we in Canada definitely are stuck for a long time, we need to keep our spits up. The pandemic taught us many lessons, one being that the personal happiness and happiness of the family are the most important in hard times. We need to cheer each other and talk about nice things to get our days to go by a bit better.

    Small business is on the brink of extinction in Canada. Because Canadian cities are so spread out, stores are far from homes, and offices are concentrated in zones, people here have been early adopters of online shopping. By closing down business without any warning, most small businesses weren't prepared to survive in an online world. This allowed large chains to thrive and small businesses to close. The consumer is further pushed to shop online.

    At Illuminata Eyewear, we believe that small business is a retainer of culture. You don't expect to have a conversation in a large store with the owner. Over the past year, we often find ourselves having long discussions with our customers. We provide mental support and try to cheer you up. We are keyholders to promoting fashion, which in itself is a mental savior for many people. People often call us from all over the world, UK, Australia, USA, to inquire about glasses and talk about life.

    We shop from small businesses as much as possible, which was problematic due to such a lack of websites. At Illuminata Eyewear, we are prepared to serve you online by having a complete service website with vast selections of products. We invite you to shop on our website, call us anytime with inquiries, schedule an appointment for your vision needs. We welcome you to visit our store whenever you can. 

    Keep your spirits up! Check out new glasses and sunglasses styles. Discuss new trends with your family and friends. Make a wish list. Have a laugh! And remember, this country will not be fun without small business.

  • Chloé - New Brand at Illuminata

    5 Feb 2021

    We are happy to invite the Chloé brand to our eyewear collections. Chloé is a well-known French luxury fashion house that turned fashion on its heels when it made a point to promote ready-to-wear with elements of prêt-à-porter. Brand founder Gaby Aghion, an Egyptian immigrant, started her workshop in a small flat in Paris in 1952. It didn't take long for her fashion passions to become a financial success. During the 60s and 70s French fashion was an epicenter of the public's cultural, social, and art lives. It was a lot to invent, and Gaby was happy to materialize her ideas of making fashionably made clothing part of the everyday life of Parisian women. Why separate high fashion from everyday clothing? It's all fashion at the end of the day. This idea became a movement, with many fashion labels that followed. Because of Chloé, we live in a world when high fashion is worn for any occasion and is a tool to express oneself.

    Over the years Chloé hired many designers, most notably Karl Lagerfeld, who came on board in 1964 and stayed with the company into the early '90s. Many people associate him with Chanel, but let's remember Chanel hired him almost 20 years after working for Chloé and because of his professional and consistent work for this brand. He was an inseparable business partner with Gaby until her retirement in 1985.

    Chloé glasses reflect the style of the brand to its fullest. Huge sizes with wild colors and multi-colorful lenses stand out from the classics. When wearing Chloé sunglasses, your entire style is formed. People wouldn't look any further down before declaring you super cool.

    At Illuminata, we love fashion and eyeglasses that stand out. We are very excited to offer bestsellers from Chloé eyeglasses collections at our store and the entire Chloé eyewear collection on our website.

  • Givenchy. Eternal Style with Vision.

    20 Jan 2021

    We are pleased to announce a new brand at Illuminata – Givenchy.

    Givenchy is one of the most luxurious and the most recognized brands in the world. It’s also one of the oldest brands in the post-war fashion era. Founded by Hubert De Givenchy in 1952 in Paris, a house of couture first operated at the Plaine Monceau and just a few years later moved into Hotel de Caraman, now is a location for Givenchy headquarters.

    Hubert de Givenchy became famous quickly after he opened his atelier. By the age of 25, he was already known for working for Jacques Fath, one of the most sought after designers of his time. He also worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior while doing designs under Lucien Lelong. Fath and Lelong's names fell out of the fashion press by now, but at that time, in the 1950s, they were all the biggest movers and creators of fashion as we know today. Hubert de Givenchy was born in a noble family, raised in wealth, and surrounded by a creative family of his mother, grandmother, and grandfather who owned a tapestry factory doing designs for Paris Opera and many large Paris buildings. Aesthetics were deep in Hubert’s genes. He also studied art at Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the most famous and oldest art school in France.

    From the time Hubert de Givenchy opened his atelier, he was known and respected. He also was very easygoing and charming. Without confidence, there wouldn’t be a revolution. Hubert’s innovative designs were eagerly popularized by Audrey Hepburn, who became his muse and a best friend for life. Everyone knows Audrey Hepburn for Breakfast at Tiffany’s movie, and everyone knows Givenchy for the dress she was wearing during the historical movie shot. Interestingly, before and after this movie, Audrey Hepburn only wore Givenchy in almost all movies that she made.

    Givenchy glasses, just like Givenchy dresses, require an open mind to be liked. Bold shapes and oversized models. Givenchy glasses will not be your regular glasses; they will portray style and fashion. Givenchy sunglasses will create and dictate your style. See the entire collection at Illuminata.

  • Gucci's Only Way in Fashion is to Push the Limits

    5 Mar 2020

    Gucci @ Twitter

    Ever since Tom Ford became a designer of Gucci, high fashion has been the primary avenue for the brand. Many brands, such as Armani, Chanel, and Max Mara, chose to stay conservative to keep afloat and keep selling. Gucci, in the meantime, was experimenting with new forms, new ideas, and pushing it forward. You lived it or hated it, Gucci kept on going. After Tom Ford, Frida Giannini took over the designing reigns and took it to yet another level. She made the brand more refined and feminine, transforming it into a must-have for people with deep pockets who wanted quality, wanted trend, but didn't necessarily want to go over that avant-garde barrier.

    When Allessandro Michele became a designer for the brand a few years ago, he gave the brand a new boost. Hippies, freedom, and youth became the main topic for every collection. From a marketing standpoint, this brand direction is paying off very well. Many rich people were young in the 80's and hippy years and related to that period very well. On the other hand, not too many brands do well in this style. They either exaggerate turning into dirty or don't have that understanding of how to convey the feeling to their target market. Allesandro seems to have grasped the idea and used his talent to make it his own, to make it Gucci's.

  • Shopping for Glasses Online is a Safe Alternative during COVID-19

    5 Mar 2020

    Illumuniata Eyewear online eyeglasses store is a convenient method to shop during coronovirus period.

    We are just as concerned about the COVID-19, new coronavirus in Toronto as everyone else. We take precautions and do our best to provide a safe and enjoyable shopping experience at our store. We clean the surfaces with alcohol and keep anti-bacterial soap on display, which we use often. We wash our hands more than usual. 

    During the SARS epidemic, our store was located at the Sherway Gardens Mall. We survived it there, and I remember it was tough. With so much traffic to the mall, it was hard not to be concerned. Luckily, we have relocated across the street to strip-mall-plaza, where all traffic to our store is directly related to buying glasses, so it's much smaller than during SARS.

    My personal shopping experience has been adjusted lately. For example, I shop for food less often and buy more each time. I certainly, don't go overboard on stockpiling for a year ahead, like some people. I started to avoid large stores.

    Nevertheless, it's springtime, and it's a high season for shopping for sunglasses. We have new stock of pretty much every brand's spring collection and can't wait to show you. Buying from a smaller store should give you confidence and a safe feeling. Especially, you don't need to walk through the long mall hallway to get to us. Just park your car and walk right in. 

    Shopping for glasses online is another excellent option to avoid virus human spread. Our website has catalogs of entire eyeglasses collection of every brand name that we carry. You can browse the styles, pick what you like, and order online. Shipping to Canada and the USA is free. You can pick up your purchase in person as well. Since you know where we are located, you can always come back to exchange or adjust your new glasses.

    We hope this pandemic will pass soon, and we all can enjoy the upcoming summer season. Keep healthy, keep safe, and don't forget to shop for your new glasses at Illuminata Eyewear.

  • Giorgio Armani is Changing Fashion by Not Changing

    24 Feb 2020

    Armani @ Twitter

    During the Milan Fashion Week this year, Giorgio Armani said that he things women fashion is sexualized more than it needs to be. He also said that he thinks that there shouldn't be trends. An interesting thought indeed and so right on that, it's hard to disagree. Giorgio Armani, Valentino Garavani, Roberto Cavalli, and late Karl Lagerfeld all seem to have arrived at this conclusion after decades in the industry.

    If you have done something right, and people buy your product because they love it, you can't change it too much. What if the current trends in the opposite of what your customers love. What if the trend is for short skirts, and you are known for long? What if the trend is for minimalism when people love you for details?

    Giorgio Armani's new collection at Milan this year is ripping the Internet not only because it is so amazing and so Armani, but also because it was shown to an empty room. Unfortunately, Italy is the new epicenter of the new coronavirus, and any public gatherings are at the risk of organizers. Giorgio Armani couldn't have imagined an outbreak starting from his show and, therefore, decided to play it safe. He asked the tickets to be returned and showed the collection to be video-recorded to show on the Internet. It's a very smart move because even I am sure Giorgio didn't think that way, it forced people to look online, giving him more Internet traffic, more shares, and, thus, more popularity. I wouldn't be surprised if this collection becomes the most shared ever.

    In addition to the unusual showing, the collection is as beautiful as ever. The models are flowing in the silk pants and velour jackets. You can tell how comfortable they are wearing it. You can wear Armani all day without taking it off. You can sleep in it, and you can eat it in it, you can run in it and do whatever without even thinking that you are wearing an elegant Armani suit.

    The same proves true for the eyeglasses. While we see a huge shift in styles of sunglasses in the past few years towards the avant-garde, trendy and exotic, Armani remains true to his inventions: classic, comfortable, and very high quality!
