SlapSee was born out of practicality from founder Ashleigh Ogilvie-Lee, who was forever putting down her pair of sunnies or reading glasses and completely forgetting about them. After sketching out an idea for a pair of glasses that would still be safely with her when Ogilvie-Lee wasn’t wearing them on her face, SlapSee came to be. The design has come a long way since that initial drawing and they’re now going to a global market.

SlapSee Sunnies are launching in six colours – coral, radiant blue, hot pink, mustard, charcoal and black, all paired with stylish black frames. Next year SlapSee plan to introduce more colours and patterns to the range, as well as new frames and the possibility of giving customers the option to have their own message or slogan printed on the arms.

The glasses are a very customisable product so there’s scope for collaborating with brands that want to overlay their own styling to the glasses. The unique siliconecoated arms provide great opportunity for custom branding and their fun design means they’ll be a real hit at festivals, sports events or anywhere sponsors are looking to engage with the public.

SlapSee Sunnies are being launched simultaneously in New Zealand and Australia in time for the festive and summer season. From November SlapSee are going to be at Westfield Shopping Centres in St Lukes and Manakau, Auckland, Queensgate, Wellington and Riccarton, Christchurch as well as taking over Cable Car Lane in Wellington with a retail installation and a carnival atmosphere.

Early next year SlapSee will introduce a range of reading glasses, as well as developing a fantastic line of kid’s eyewear. They are not only practical and safe, but great fun so the junior market will be a big part of their development.
