Meet Flutter Eyewear, “the Manolo Blahniks of reading glasses,” for stylish women.
Perfect for the well-heeled over-40 set, their Spring/Summer 2017 collection debuts the latest in fashion meets function.
Inspired by the runways of Gucci, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Dolce & Gabbana, Flutter’s spring collection is pretty, romantic and wearable for everyday.
Their optician-quality, hand-polished frames come in a beautiful palette of the highest quality acetates sourced from around the world.
For years, shopping for reading glasses fell somewhere between jeans and bathing suits on the shopping experience spectrum.
Flutter Eyewear, created with the established power woman in mind – think Marissa Mayer and Sara Blakely – kicks the traditional, granny panty-esque readers to the curb.
These aren’t your mama’s reading glasses, but they should be.
For Spring 2017, Flutter is offering 7 brand new frame shape and color combinations in a stunning variety of reds, oranges and blues: the Amelia Almost Red, Amelia Aquamarine Tortoise, Amelia Confetti Kumquat, Greer Confetti, Greer Confetti Kumquat, Greer Aquamarine Tortoise and Willa Confetti Kumquat, all pictured below.
Visit Flutter’s “Perfect Fit” tab on their website to find out how to get started. They have tools to help you determine:
■ Face Shape (to help you find the perfect frames for your face shape)
■ Lens Power (to determine magnification)
■ Paper Dolls (templates of the frames to print out, cut out, and try on for fit)
■ Try On (a virtual try on application that works with your own uploaded photo).
Flutter readers retail for $85 and sun readers retail for $95 and are sold at www.fluttereyewear.com
Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is May 14th and national eyewear day follows right behind it on June 6th!
About Flutter Eyewear
San Francisco area entrepreneurs Patti Lee-Hoffmann and Gayle Haworth set their sights on creating their online store after personal experiences of embarrassment and frustration from buying age-defining reading glasses in public.
From the comfort of their own home, customers are guided through the website to choose the best frame for their face shape and size.
They simply upload their photo and try on their favorite designs.
A fashion forward collection showcasing traditional styles and today’s latest trends in frame shape and color is offered with fashion tips to style every face shape and size.
Cat-eyes to draw attention to the eyes, striking color combinations for a touch of drama, and traditional tortoise motifs for a classic look – you can virtually try on every pair on fluttereyewear.com site!
In celebration of classic novels, Flutter has named each of their styles after your favorite literary heroines — Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan, The Scarlet Letter’s Hester Prynne and Breakfast at Tiffany’s Holly Golightly, to name a few.
Prices range from $85.00 for readers and $95.00 for sunglass readers all beautifully packaged in the Flutter eyewear travel case and box.
“We make glasses fun to buy,” adds co-founder Gayle Haworth.
“There is a Flutter eyeglass that will perfectly frame the masterpiece that you are.”
