B Sunglasses Round-up | Sunglasses News Apr 24 – 30 | News

Hello and welcome to another B Sunglasses Round-up here at B Sunglasses. Every week we gather together the biggest sunglasses news stories and put them all in one place for our readers. Last week’s round-up looked at the brand-new Karl Lagerfeld collection that has come to B Sunglasses. It also discussed the new high-tech glasses that help people who are ‘legally blind’ to see again. This week, we’re talking about Jimmy Choo’s announcement that it is putting itself up for sale! And we’re also talking about our recent buying trip to Edinburgh to add to our already impressive range of designer sunglasses.

Jimmy Choo Announces it is For Sale

This Monday, Jimmy Choo announced that they were for sale, but there haven’t been any bidders yet. This huge fashion house is a seriously valuable brand, however, so we’re confident it will be snapped up pretty soon. Shares in Jimmy Choo have risen in anticipation that Jimmy Choo will sell to an extremely wealthy buyer and the brand will expand even further over the next few years.

Given Jimmy Choo’s meteoric success, it’s difficult to imagine a scenario where an opportunistic buyer doesn’t snap it up. It was only founded in 1996, in London, and it made a name for itself designing extravagant shoes for women. However, in recent years, Jimmy Choo expanded to include accessory collections, including some incredible eyewear. Whoever ends up buying Jimmy Choo, we’re confident that they’ll continue to design impressive luxury eyewear, and that we’ll continue to buy it. The Jimmy Choo brand is here to stay!

If you’d like to get an idea of Jimmy Choo’s aesthetic, then check out our Jimmy Choo sunglasses collection and here are a few of our tops picks:

Buying Trip to Edinburgh

Here at B Sunglasses, we are always on the lookout for new sunglasses and glasses to add to our collections. The more we can offer our customers in terms of quality and selection, the more likely it is that you’ll keep coming back. So, on Wednesday this week, we travelled to Edinburgh to preview the latest releases from luxury eyewear manufacturer Kering. Kering has an impressive roster of designer eyewear brands, such as Gucci, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen.

The buying team were blown away by the latest additions to the various brands’ collections. Gucci covered it all: from whacky, modern sunglasses to classic heritage pieces. Our team completely fell in love with the temple tip bee detailing on a selection of Gucci’s designs and there was a really strong selection of classic ophthalmic frames from Saint Laurent. The use of the YSL logo and Saint Laurent writing in white are really nice selling points on the new sunglasses and glasses designs. On the latest Alexander McQueen releases, we saw beautifully incorporated stud detailing as well as the iconic skull design.

This buying trip was a success and we’ll be adding quite a few new items to each of our collections. So, if you want to keep an eye on the different brands mentioned in this section, make sure you click on the links above and check them out over the coming weeks.
