  • Red and Burgundy is New Brown

    22 Nov 2022

    As this year is nearing to the end, we can conclude that Red and Burgundy is New Brown. The color that was so difficult to sell, suddenly, became very popular in Canada this year. And it's partly due to fashion brands that started to manufacture more of this color. Almost every ladies plastic glasses would have red or burgundy along with tortoise and black. If customer has been wearing tortoise for many years, or maybe their entire life, it was easy to convice that time has come to change!

    Red color works well for everyone, no matter the hair color, skin tone, style or age. It brightens up the face, even removes the need for makeup in many cases. Who needs a make up when you have red glasses on!

    Tom Ford 5812B Etnia Brutal No5 Tory Burch TY2122U

    Another great feature of red, that it comes in many shades and can be very toned down if you don't want a bit pop on your face. It can be semi-transparent or in violet tones. Red also became popular as accent color. Even a line or border in red on black or brown, makes glasses look quite awesome. It all partly became possible due to development of new technologies that allow fusing colors more easily. Eyeglasses designers definitely are having fun with it. It must be rewarding to see more people embrace this beautiful color.

    Worried about matching it to your clothing? No need at all! Glasses never meant to be matched by clothing or other accessories. What's on the face, is most important. You can have more fun with it by painting your nails red or putting on red lipstick.

    With the help of our customers we were able to debunk the myth that red color is not good on flashed faced. Some people didn't even want to try red glasses because their skink often turns red in heat or cold. It turned out to be quite the opposite. Red glasses will deflect from your red skin and in fact make your skin look more pale. Hard to beleive, but try them on to see the result.

    At Illuminata Eyewear, we always had a good choice of red glasses. But now, we have even more!

  • 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.
