Welcome to another B Sunglasses Round-up here at B Sunglasses. Every week, we find out all the biggest sunglasses news and put the stories in one place. We also include plenty of information about our own products, new brands, competitions, and giveaways. On last week’s round-up we talked about our exciting buying trip to Venice to see the new Luxottica collections on offer. This week, we’re talking about our competition and our special discount code for International Women’s Day, and our brand new Valentino and Moncler collections!
International Women’s Day Competition!
You might have noticed that Wednesday the 8th was International Women’s Day. It was a day to celebrate the incredible women in our lives. As a celebration of this, we decided to give away these beautiful Ray-Ban® Wayfarers to one lucky winner:
From our incredible Ray-Ban® sunglasses collection
To draw attention to and celebrate International Women’s Day, we asked our social media followers to comment on the above picture, telling us about a woman who has been the biggest inspiration in their lives and why. Our winner was Mel Brolly, who had this to say about her foster mum:
My amazing foster mum. Just look at her kind face ❤️❤️ [we haven’t included a picture of her kind face, but you can find it on our Facebook page] she took me in when I was a troubled teen many moons ago and she turned my life around. I’m 41 now and she continues to inspire me daily. So proud to call her mum. She dedicated her life to taking on kids with multiple issues and bringing out the best in them… that takes someone brave and very special x”
When we announced the winner, we also gave everyone 10% off all full-price women’s eyewear (except Ray-Ban®) until the 31st of March! To get 10% off, simply use this promo code: WHORUNSTHEWORLD.
New brands at B Sunglasses: Moncler and Valentino
Following last week’s buying trip to Venice, we are very excited to announce two new designer collections coming to B Sunglasses: Moncler and Valentino!
Moncler was founded in a mountain village close to Grenoble called Monestier-de-Clermont and its name is an abbreviation of this village’s name. The brand was founded in 1952 and its headquarters is now in Milan – the fashion capital of the world. Its sunglasses draw on an opulent sense of Italian style, with special attention given to round and square rims. To whet your appetite, here are a few items from our Moncler sunglasses collection:
Valentino SpA was founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani. Its headquarters is in Milan. It began as Valentino SpA but has since been bought and grouped together as part of the larger Valentino brand name. With incredible eyewear designs, we couldn’t be more pleased to include an exciting mixture of Valentino sunglasses in our collection. Here’s a taste of what our Valentino sunglasses collection has to offer:
Fashion Friday: Paris Fashion Week Roundup
This Friday, Jake wrote a fantastic round-up of the recent Paris Fashion Week, explaining a little bit of the history of the fashion week and about the different brands and special guests who attended. You can read the entire blog post here! I’d like to give a brief summary of PFW, however: everyone watched as Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello presented his women’s collection, which contained oversized pointy shoulders, knee-high boots, and ruffled leather boots. Stella McCartney’s collection had an equestrian theme and was said to have been influenced by the classical English painter, George Stubbs. McCartney also paid tribute to George Michael as her entire show was accompanied by a remix of the late singer’s song Faith, which was then followed by a dance routine at the end. And R’n’B star Rihanna brought out the third line of her Fenti x Puma collection, dazzling the Paris crowds with a spectrum of bright colours.

We continue to be impressed by the quality and the professionalism of the fashion bloggers who feature some of our sunglasses. This week, we were pleased to spot blogger Charlotte Fisher wearing a pair of our Saint Laurent Aviators.
You can see Charlotte sporting these beautiful sunglasses on her blog, here. We think Charlotte looks amazing. If you’re interested in seeing more from Charlotte, follow her Instagram account and her blog Things I do, think, and buy!
