  • MOSCHINO Glasses Now Selling At Illuminata Eyewear

    15 May 2018

    We are pleased to announce a new brand MOSCHINO to join our glasses collection. Moschino glasses and sunglasses is nothing you have ever seen before. Colorful, wild and excentric Moschino products carry the idea that fashion should be entertainment. 
    The brand founder Franco Moschino was an artist and illustrator before creating his fashion label. He worked with Gianni Versace during his formative career years, and the influence between the two designers is still felt in every collection. Versace taught Moschino fashion business, and Moschino taught Versace fashion politics.

    Franco Moschino was known as the eccentric designer who made thematic fashion shows and created a theatrical experience for the spectators and models. He believed that fashion is a means of self-expression and often used big letter writings on the tops and dresses. He was among the first designers to oppose the use of animal fur and chemical dyes. He used his fashion collections to express his opinion on environmental issues, racism, and violence.

    Most notable Moschino eyeglasses in 2018 collection are beaming with bright red and white color. The golden studs are adding flavor to the stunning glasses designs. Of course, classic styles in black and Havana colors are available for practically every model.
    30 years ago when Moschino started his label, his eccentric couture style was deemed too wild for the general public. Fashion icons Madonna and Kylie Minogue hired Moschino designers for their tour costumes. But today when fashion is starting to be seen as a voice and means self-expression MOSCHINO is relevant and popular among regular people like you and me.

    It is easy to fall in love with Moschino glasses because they frame your style in such a fun and noninvasive way. If you think of yourself as a conservative person, you would appreciate many Moschino glasses because they will look stylish without compromising your comfort zone.

    If you love to experiment with your looks pick one of the brave Moschino sunglasses and you can be certain to gather countless compliments from your friends.

  • How To Pick Modern Glasses For High Prescriptions

    3 May 2018


    Etnia Lapa, $347

    Modern glasses styles seem to get larger and larger. Models in posh magazines are wearing oversized glasses with Plano lenses in them making the style look like attainable for everyone. Extra large round and square frames have invaded the market this year with every brand offering a few variations of their designs. At the store, we are facing many customers who want to look stylish and modern but are concerned that extra large XL frames will not work for their strong prescriptions. 

    The biggest concern is that lenses will come out thick. The stronger the prescription, the thicker lenses will be. The larger glasses, the thicker your lenses will turn out. Say, your prescription is +4.50/+4.25. The smaller the frames, the thinner lenses will be for this specific prescription. To get best possible results, opt of thinnest Index lenses. 1.67 or 1.74. Even with that high index lenses will show thickness in the most popular XL thin wired frames.

    Glasses weight is another concern. The larger the lenses, the heavier they will be. Popular frames are almost double in size than what you are used to if you shopped 5-7 years ago. If glasses temples are thin, they may not balance out the lenses weight, and you will feel heavy on your nose.

    And lastly, vision clarity might be a concern if you have a strong prescription or high astigmatism. Lenses might need very precise measurement, and glasses will need to be precisely adjusted for a clear view. Not only PD measurement will matter, but also height. Height measurement is a must for progressive lenses, but even for single vision, this measure is necessary if you picked XL glasses frames,

    At Illuminata Eyewear we have a range of glasses designs from 2018 collections that include all cool and stylish XL glasses. We are more than willing to edge lenses of any prescription in them and let you decide if you like the look and if you feel comfortable. If you don't like your glasses, you can pick different frames and reuse the lenses or get them done a new.

    We advise customers with a strong prescription to go for smaller frames that have the same style as large with the same design idea. Round glasses have been popular for over five years now, and designers seem to keep adding millimeters to the size. Smaller round frames still look modern and will work much better than larger ones. We see more variations of plastic round frames in more colors and color combinations. Plastic round glasses will hide the lens thickness the best.

    At the store, we have many options from various designers and will be happy to offer best choices for your style and personality.

    Yes, I know it may not feel very much like spring today. At least we got to wear our winter fashion a bit longer. Soon you will feel like changing to fun, lighter clothing and seriously think which sunglasses to wear with that new wardrobe.

    23 Feb 2018

    We are looking ahead to the exciting spring season of 2018 and are stocking up on new 2018 glasses from various designer brands. By looking at the new collections, I can tell that glasses are becoming more exciting. Designers are finally getting a good balance between fashion and wearable.

    The meaning of avant-garde is blending in with mainstream styles where designers are promoting the idea of fashion to become a daily element of everyone's lives, not just celebrity or person of art. Brand name designers want everyone to experiment with their look more courageously and glasses is a great tool for that.

    Clear or transparent is becoming increasingly popular. With transparent frames, you can match any outfit and not worry about the color. More transparent frames are made elegant and dressy due to detail, glitter or rhinestone accent.

  • Ideas for Lady Gifts for St Valentine's Day

    24 Jan 2018

    Every year it's a mind puzzler what to gift for St. Valentines. The longer you are together with your partner, the harder those holidays and special events are. Men often wish woman just goes and buys herself what she wants. But most ladies prefer to get a gift, and a nice gift, something that she wants. So go figure it out. We hope these few tips will help you out.

    1. Accessories are better than clothing. Jewelry, purses, and sunglasses are always better than clothing. Clothing is getting harder to buy as a gift because many brands lack quality and style is way too diverse. Not to mention that getting a right fit is very hard. You will never have a problem with a fit for jewelry, handbags and the majority of sunglasses. It is a general misconception that sunglasses need to fit facial shape. It's not the case anymore because sunglasses are made as fashion objects, not a vision eye care. So the shape and size are lesser of a concern when gifting sunglasses.

    2. Brand name matters. We live in a very commercial world. The brand name is very important when making a gift. The higher level the brand, the more valuable the gift becomes. Many fashion companies recognize that brand name sells, and have diversified in different collections or even sub-brands to offer the product in the different price range. For example, Armani has five brands: Giorgio Armani Privé, Giorgio Armani, Armani Collezioni are most expensive. Emporio Armani, Armani Jeans, ArmaniExchange are less expensive than Giorgio and Emporio. 
    Same story for Roberto Cavalli - Just CavalliMarc Jacobs - Marc by Marc Jacobs, Prada - Prada Sport, etc. So getting a nice brand name does not mean spending ridiculous money. 

    3. Sunglasses is a very good gift. All sunglasses in Illuminata Eyewear are by known brands and are good quality. We carry expensive luxury brands and more affordable luxury brands to offer customers not only a pricing range but also style choices. Very often a customer will choose less expensive sunglasses not because of price, but because of style. Utility feature of sunglasses makes them a very good gift. Your lady will wear them on her face, will look fabulous and love you more each time she wears them.

    4. Packaging is important. It is part of presentation and gifting experience. Adults are like children. We all love unpacking, unboxing and enjoying the intriguing moment of getting a gift. Many brands that we carry at Illuminata Eyewear provide not only glasses case but also a hard box and a signature shopping bag. Tiffany, Prada and Roberto Cavalli have the most elaborate packaging for gifts.

    5. Trust your instinct or trust professional fashion advisors. At Illuminata, we care a lot about style and can pretty much guarantee to help you choose the best possible gift. We know our stuff! But you will never go wrong with simply trusting your gut. If you follow these simple rules, your gift will be most memorable.

  • Are Sunglasses A Good Christmas Gift?

    16 Dec 2017

    Do sunglasses make a good Christmas gift is a question that we hear every year? As owners of the optical store, we can tell you with the assurance that sunglasses make a very good Christmas gift. But you need to use some common sense judgment to make them a very good Christmas gift. 

    Why are sunglasses good Christmas Gift? 

    Yes, they are, mainly because they are very useful, even in the winter. Just like purses or perfumes, one can't have too many of sunglasses. Style changes way faster than you normally shop for sunglasses and getting an up-to-date, a stylish pair for a Christmas gift will give your loved a great joy.

    Sunglasses gift will give your loved one a completely new impression about you. You will appear as a caring person. Sunglasses are not an only fashion accessory, but they are also a health item. You need sunglasses to see comfortably on sunny days and to protect your eyes from the UV rays. 

    Sunglasses will be the most talked about and showed off the gift of all. No matter how fashionable, classic or simple sunglasses will be, your loved one will put them on and gladly show off to other people "Look what I got!" . This is just what people do when they get sunglasses as a gift. They put it on and show to other people. Sunglasses go on the face, they are easy to show off unline shoes, pijamas or other things.

    How to Choose Sunglasses for a Chrismas Gift?


    If a few years ago we would go into all the spiel about the fit, the style, and the brand, this year we would simply say, get whatever you like. Sunglasses styles evolved dramatically over the past two years. They became more couture, more daring and whether they fit your facial shape, it's no longer a factor. Sunglasses are not prescription glasses. They cover your face and suppose to be large to protect your eyes well. So shape is a secondary factor these days. High-end brands that we carry at Illuminata Eyewear employ best designers in the world. Not only fashion designers but also industrial designers who calculate how sunglasses will fit and feel on all kinds of nose shapes and face sizes.

    A little tip will help you. If you like very large sunglasses, then get either Asian fit plastic sunglasses or metal frames. They will fit easier and will be easier to adjust to fit perfectly.

    Other than, just get what you like. Worst comes to worst you can exchange your purchase together and turn it into a special event.
