After a Christmas period that feels like it was over as soon as it began, we kick off the new year with some exciting news in the sunglasses world. We would also like to take this opportunity to have a look back on some of our best moments in 2017. Not only this, but we take a look ahead to what 2018 has in store for us and some of the amazing things that look set to happen in the new year.
Where we went
As part of our Travel Tuesday feature, we have been jetting off to the far ends of the globe to find you the perfect place to go an visit. We started off 2017 by heading to Morzine in the French Alps. It was a true snow fest, and we discovered just what makes it one of the best places to go for both winter and summer holidays. Particularly if you are the type that wants to head outdoors, explore and go thrill seeking.
We also visited more far flung regions of the globe, such as the South American countries of Chile and Argentina. Not to mention places like Mali, the Irish city of Dublin and other areas often overlooked by tourists like Ethiopia, the American city of Detroit and Kerala.
What we did
We held a huge amount of amazing competitions last year, including the recent Christmas Hamper giveaway and loads more inbetween. Not only this, we held a Chocolate Eclair eating contest that went down an absolute treat. We set off to London’s Fashion Week to see what the hottest designers were going to be releasing the following season, and our buyers headed off across the globe to find you the next best thing in eyewear for the coming seasons.
What 2018 looks like
Expect more from the relatively new eyewear collection by Moncler, who have had an amazing first year in 2017. We also look forward to bringing you the latest collections from big names like Gucci, Prada and Saint Laurent. Many of which have unveiled their new, boundary pushing collections for the summer already and have got everybody pretty excited. Where Travel Tuesday is concerned, we have a whole host of places to tick off our list and can’t wait to share our experiences with you all. In external sunglasses news, more and more brands seem to be pioneering the ‘video sunglasses’. After Snapchat unveiled their Spectacles range, it seems other companies are giving it a shot themselves. Check out these ones featured on The Verge It will be interesting to see what change this may have on the sunglasses world.
Stay tuned this 2018!
