Introducing your new favourite sunglasses brand.
In this current situation, we are all looking to brighter days. We mean this metaphorically, but also nothing beats the end of lockdown like a well-deserved beer in the sun. Which means there has never been a better time to start your search for this summers perfect sunglasses. There is a lot of lost pub time to make up for.
The fundamentals when it comes to shopping for sunglasses is first understanding what your face shape is. Once you know whether you have an oblong, or square face, for example, you can filter your selection down to the right frames.
Spending all your ‘hard-earned’ furlough money on a pair of pricey designer sunglasses might not seem like the best idea right now. But, there are other brands out there that can deliver on price, quality and have a social conscience at the same time.
This is where Bloobloom steps forward. With a range of spectacles and sunglasses, they pride themselves on the value of their direct-to-consumer model.
Made from Italian acetate, with lightweight stainless steel, an anti-scratch coating makes them robust enough to withstand the vigour of daily life. The frames are handcrafted in a 50-stage (yes 50-stage!) process culminating in 3 days of hand-polishing and wood-tumbling.
One of our favourites is the Parisian model. It comes in a stunning midnight blue colour that is unlike others we have seen on the market currently. But, don’t be swayed by the design alone. Skin cancer can form around the eyes in 10% of all cases, so protection via SPF and using the correct eyewear is key. Bloobloom sunglasses come with 100% UV protection.
For those men looking for more of a social conscience approach from their brands – every frame purchased sees Bloobloom give a pair to someone in need through their non-profit partner.
The brand is transparent on its pricing and the costs that go into producing their frames. Removing the costly markups that are prevalent throughout the sunglasses industry the saving is passed onto the customer.
