Burberry Prescription Eyeglasses Frames: Classic Designs With Contemporary Accents
Thomas Burberry decided in 1856 that he would open a store providing quality outdoor attire to British sportsmen. He is best known for patenting gabardine fabric and for practical but stylish all-weather coat designs. The designer is also famous for outfitting famous explorers such as Roald Amundsen (the first person to reach the South Pole) and members of the royal family. In the course of the company's more than 150-year history, Burberry has evolved from a small clothing shop in Basingstoke, England, to one of the most famous and recognizable names in fashion the world over.
The company introduced eyewear in 2006, during its 150th anniversary year. The luxury brand is dedicated to providing the highest quality of products and materials possible so that their frames maintain their status as among the best available today. With traditional styling and classic designs set off by contemporary accents and trendy influences, the brand offers an eyewear collection that combines a strong and dignified style with the highest quality standards.
Burberry eyeglasses come in a range of frames for men and women, in which progressive and single vision lenses are available to suit your particular vision correction needs. In fact, your lenses will be carefully checked against your prescription by on-staff certified opticians before your new glasses are delivered to you.
Burberry eyeglasses collection is dominated by metal and plastic rectangular and rounded-edge frames in rimmed, semi-rimless, and rimless styles. Frames also come in a variety of color options, so you can personalize your glasses to suit your own aesthetic preferences.
Spectacles by Burberry have the brand's unmistakable classic style and quality construction. Eyeglasses for men are understated, sophisticated, and elegant. They are perfect for an executive or a confident young man wanting to make a good first impression.
Burberry’s line of glasses for women exudes traditional styling with a contemporary flair. Shapes include feminine ovals, rounds, and rectangles with rounded edges. Colors range from subdued black and soft silver to youthful lavenders, blues, and pinks.
Materials commonly used to construct these eyeglass frames include metal, plastic, and acetate.
Acetate is the most common material used for frame manufacturing. It has endless possibilities for color, texture, and patterns. It can even be laminated to create great visual effects, and it can retain a higher luster. Acetate is lightweight, so it is often chosen for its versatility in coloring as well as for its comfort. Acetate is made out of cotton seed fibers and plasticizers.
Metal frames resist corrosion, plus they are strong and easily adjusted. The metal is engineered to retain its stability and shape.
Symbols associated with Burberry prescription glasses are the iconic check and the brand’s equestrian logo. Whether you wish to embrace a classic British look or simply feel nostalgic for the traditional styles of the past, Burberry is the eyeglasses brand for you.
