AS SHE gears up to celebrate 50 years in the business in 2016, fashion icon Twiggy has collaborated with Specsavers to design an exclusive range of elegant, stylish and glamorous glasses.

Aurora collection

The Twiggy for Aurora collection, available at Specsavers, has been designed for women like herself who want to look chic and stylish but love to have fun with fashion. The range features six sophisticated styles each encrusted with gemstones in different colours with a signature crystal on the tips of the sides.

Specs wearers

Twiggy, who also models the collection, says: ‘I’m so excited, I have always wanted to design a range of eyewear and I hope that I can inspire other specs wearers through my new collection.

Extremely exciting

‘I have been a glasses wearer for more than 20 years, I need them for reading, driving, watching TV, pretty much everything really! I have always had numerous pairs in different shapes and colours as I love to change my glasses depending on what I’m wearing, so it’s extremely exciting to be able to design my own now!’

Chic and stylish

Twiggy took inspiration for the range from her own wardrobe and attitude to fashion. She says: ‘I love fun and stylish looks and it’s very important to me to be comfortable. Also, being chic and stylish never goes out of fashion.’

The Aurora collection includes the following six frames:

* Aurora Sapphire ‘I absolutely love these gorgeous navy blue tortoiseshell frames. How cool can you get?! They’ve got a very slight cat’s eye shape, sapphire crystals on the sides and, of course, the signature Aurora crystal on the tips.’

* Aurora Lapis ‘I love these pretty, delicate silver metal frames decorated with beautiful pale blue crystals. I can wear them day or night as they’re so chic and elegant, and being so light makes them extremely comfortable.’

* Aurora Amethyst: ‘Look at that colour – aren’t they fabulous? The cat’s eye shape is very flattering on the face. They’re so cool and fashion forward, which I love.’

* Aurora Marcasite: ‘There’s a beautiful warm, soft tone to these frames with the pink crystals and mother of pearl on the sides. Perfect for dressing up and down.’

* Aurora Rose Quartz: ‘I absolutely adore the colour of these pretty pink frames. They are fine and subtle but brought to life with gorgeous square cut Swarovski stones on the sides, very wearable!’

* Aurora Jet: ‘These are real showstoppers! Strong and stylish softened by beautiful crystal detailing on the front. They will add the wow factor to any outfit!’

Six sophisticated styles

The Twiggy for Aurora collection is available exclusively from Specsavers. Priced at €189, there are six sophisticated styles to choose from, which are also included in the Specsavers two for one offer.
