Must-have brands and trends attracting surge in festive spending at Blankstone

Must-have brands and trends attracting surge in festive spending at Blankstone

“There’s definitely been an emerging trend and it’s already apparent this season as eyewear gets depicted in more and more lifestyle media as an essential fashion accessory,” said Blankstone opticians managing director Mark Blankstone.

“This has been the case in Europe for many years and it’s now very much part of style culture here in the UK. Naturally, with Liverpool being very much a style and fashion conscious city, we’re witnessing this in-store too.

“It’s why we stock so many exclusive brands like Gucci, Tom Ford, Chanel, Fendi, Rayban and Tiffany...it’s what A-list celebrities have been stepping out wearing this Autumn.

"Much of our latest stock has also just arrived so customers can access the very latest designs...from the bling and extravagant to the more conservative, all the frames make a strong statement in the style stakes. Plus, we’re carrying elegant La Loop chains for your designer eyewear and, specially commissioned vouchers for Christmas as gifts for your loved ones.”
