Kylie Minogue steps into the spotlight for her first ever eyewear collection which is exclusive to Specsavers Australia and New Zealand. Kylie Minogue Eyewear features 25 glasses and four prescription sunglasses, all of which are launching nationally today. Minogue describes the collection as a mix of classics and reinvented vintage, with different eras influencing the shapes, colours and textures. “Designing the glasses and collaborating with Specsavers has been a fabulous experience. I’ve taken a lot of inspiration from the idea of modern classics, popular shapes and styles that suit most people, but with my own personal twist on each frame,” said Minogue. Each frame also displays her iconic 'K'. Minogue first started wearing glasses when she was in her early twenties. “I’d been experiencing headaches and had difficulty maintaining focus when reading, so I had my eyes tested and I’ve been a specs wearer ever since."
Minogue said expressing yourself with glasses provides a fantastic opportunity to change up your look which she loves to do. Having a mixture of styles is something that works for Minogue. "I like to combine that functional day-to-day look with a little more glamour for the evening. That's something I've incorporated into the collection," she explained.
At Minogue's request, Specsavers made sure the collection included some petite styles. "I know what it's like searching for glasses and not being able to find any that fit. We've really made sure there's something in there for everyone!"
