SOLSTICE by Anne et Valentin – available now!

We have taken delivery of some very exciting sunglasses!

Anne et Valentin’s Eclipse collection features a subtle layering of translucent material around the body of the frame. The crystalline hues filter the light to change the apparent size, shape and colour of the frame according to the light conditions. A trompe l’oeil or magic trick, this certainly makes for a very special pair of sunglasses!

Solstice by Anne et Valentin

 

The Solstice model, a Grey St. Optician favourite, has a rounded lens shape which magically transforms into an elegant cat-eye. Think retro, feminine, expressive and beautiful! These sunglasses MUST be tried on to be fully appreciated! You know where to find them:

Weather Transitions

After snow, hail and heavy rain it’s great to see blue sky over Grey Street!

It’s time to dust off the sunglasses and put them back on your nose!

We have some amazing new sunglasses for 2018 but there are some amazing new prescription LENS options too:

We fitted this Anne et Valentin with custom-made colour changing lenses – Soft green gradient  dark grey tint. Perfect for our contrary weather!

Green graduated lens
Grey sunglass lenses

 

Traditional Transitions lenses, that go dark in the sun, can now turn sapphire blue or purple… as well as the classic grey, green and brown.

For driving in low sunshine, graduated polarised lenses cut out glare and look great!

We have so many options to turn your beautiful frame into an amazing and unique pair of sunglasses.

Come and see us while the sun is shining!

Grey Street Glasses Gurus

We have just returned from a training day at a ‘secret location’, which turned out to be a rather nice hotel in London. It was great to meet up with friends from like-minded practices from around the country.
We learned lots of new skills which ranged from folding T shirts (ask us about this when you are next in store!) to delivering exceptional service.
We are back on Grey Street with a spring in our step, ready to serve like never before!

Choosing glasses should not be a chore! A Grey St. Optician Frame consultation is fun, free and informative. There is no obligation to buy. Contact us today to make an appointment.
