Welcome to another B Sunglasses Round-up here at B Sunglasses. Each week, we round-up any interesting sunglasses news stories and include our own news about brands, competitions, giveaways, etc, and put them all into one place for our readers. Last week, we looked in detail at our buying trip to London. This week, we’re covering several stories, including our buying trip to Amsterdam to see Marchon’s collection of Chloe and Calvin Klein sunglasses.
Marchon Buying Trip
Oversized Chloe sunglasses at Marchon
For the second year in a row, Philly, our head of eCommerce and buying, travelled to the Marchon head office in Amsterdam to look at their new sunglasses collections. Philly had an early start and travelled from the Leeds/Bradford airport to Schiphol airport, just outside of Amsterdam. Philly was joined by veteran sunglasses sales manager and all-round legend, Paul Atkins. Philly and Paul were checking out what Chloe and Calvin Klein had to offer in their 2018 sunglasses collections.
Chloe didn’t disappoint, showing new silhouettes based on the ever-popular Carlina metal frame round design. They also showed a range of new Pilots, smaller rounds, and hexagonal variations of the double metal design in strong Gold and peach flash lens.

Calvin Klein’s new creative director, Raf Simons, won both the Men’s and Women’s designer of the year. His personal aesthetic could be felt all over the new Calvin Klein sunglasses collection. The last designer to win both of these awards was Calvin Klein himself, so we know his brand is in very safe hands.
Free Polaroid T-Shirt with Any Pair of Sunglasses
We’re running an amazing special offer here at B Sunglasses, giving customers a chance to get a free Polaroid T-shirt when they buy any pair of Polaroid Sunglasses. The offer is limited to just one T-shirt per order, however, and it will only run as long as stocks last. Polaroid is one of the best eyewear designers in the world, and people rarely require any incentive to buy a pair of their sunglasses, so make sure you take advantage of this offer quickly if you have your heart set on your very own Polaroid T-shirt! Please feel free to check out our incredible collection of Polaroid sunglasses today, but here are a few of our favourites to whet your appetite:
Blogger and Instagrammer Coverage
This year, our sunglasses are getting more exposure than ever before. It’s obviously good for us to get our name there, but we also really like talking to and working with some of the best fashion bloggers and instagrammers in the world. This week, @Mouldyfruit in Dubai was wearing a pair of our gorgeous Tom Ford Alistair sunglasses.

Brand in the Spotlight: Versace
This week, our Brand in the Spotlight was Versace, the Italian super brand. Eve wrote a comprehensive Versace spotlight earlier in the week, but I’d like to write a little bit about them here as well.
The Versace brand is one of the most famous fashion labels in the world and it was founded by Gianni Versace in 1978. Gianni grew up around fashion, as his mother owned a dressmaking business and he worked for his mother when he was younger. Versace is famous for its big, bold designs that aren’t afraid to push the envelope. The brand combines the opulence of classic Italian fashion design with an Avant Garde modern aesthetic. With stunning clothes, accessories, and sunglasses all coming out of the Versace studios, the brand is bigger and more influential than ever. If you’re interested, please check out our Versace sunglasses collection, and here are a few of our favourite pieces for you to consider:
New Arrivals in our French Connection Collection
We have some new arrivals in our French Connection sunglasses collection this week. We sent out an e-flyer with all of the new pieces, including the following:
And that’s all the sunglasses news we have time for this week. Please come back next week for another B Sunglasses Round-up!
