A pioneer of Australian fashion, Carla Zampatti is undeniably one of Australia’s most influential designers, embodying the evolving spirit of the modern woman with her unmistakably bold and sophisticated designs.

Her new collaborative collection with Specsavers is a nod to iconic moments in fashion, reinvented for the modern day woman who wants to stand apart from the crowd in her glasses. Retro-inspired classics from past decades are reinterpreted with fresh, contemporary flair, making them highly wearable and unique.

For Carla, the new collection has been designed with the modern woman in mind – purposeful and with an independence of spirit. 

I’ve designed a collection I would wear. It is a collection that is both practical and flattering, offering versatile solutions for the office, home or simply a day at the beach. Every occasion, every woman, regardless of age or style.

Exclusive to Specsavers and available in stores now, the collection includes 14 optical and eight prescription sunglasses. Carla is passionate about eyewear, she wears her sunglasses both indoors and outdoors.

I buy sunglasses by the dozen.I love sunglasses, I always have, that’s why the idea of designing an eyewear range really appealed to me. That’s why I partnered with Specsavers, so I had more to wear!

Specsavers x Balmain

The collection follows the launch of Specsavers’ recent collaboration with Balmain. Inspired by Balmain’s structured and expertly crafted clothing, the range hosts a range of styles and colours that make women feel beautiful, confident and empowered.

Meticulously designed, subtle Balmain brand details can be found on every frame, including a gold ‘B’ on the temple tips and detailed embellishments on the frames inspired by the Balmain belt chain collection. A colour palette of glossy black, gold, pink and tortoiseshell has been chosen to offer the wearer a variety of styles with sophisticated elegance to finish off their look.

Spokesperson for the brand, Maï Dao-Vu says the Balmain team take great pride in the launch of the new range, seeing it as an incredible opportunity to inspire fashion-conscious spectacle wearers to update their wardrobes with a statement piece of eyewear.

It’s been incredibly exciting to transfer our signature aesthetics from our garments to eyewear. By incorporating incredible attention to detail in every piece, we have delivered an eyewear collection that will allow the wearer to feel confident in their look.

We wanted to add a signature Balmain twist to classic and modern styles so that the frames could hint at exclusivity, while maintaining the simplicity of an everyday look. The Balmain eyewear collection offers Parisian chic no matter where in the world they are worn.
