Gok launches new retro-inspired collection to New Zealand. International fashion guru and Specsavers ambassador Gok Wan has launched a fabulous new range of sexy, sassy, bold new frames: 'GW' by Gok Wan collection.
(OPENPRESS) October 10, 2011 -- Inspired by four of the most fashion-fabulous decades from the 40s through to the 70s, the range is Geek chic at its finest. The frames are intelligent yet sexy with unique features to put Kiwi specs wearers on the fashion podium.
Unveiled at the prestigious Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year fashion event this week, and available in the New Zealand market from Saturday 8 October exclusively to Specsavers stores, this dynamic range will freshen up any look as the daring retro style struts back into fashion pages.
Gok says he has designed his 25-pair range to be creative, statement pieces for the face that are affordable and accessible to anyone.
"This is a premiere collection that's sexy, strong, glamorous and different to the everyday. It's got everything from ultra-feminine shapes and art deco detailing from the 40s, sexy cat's eye frames from the 50s, oh so 'Mad Men' king size acetate a'la 60s and iconic aviators in acetate blue and black to mirror the 70s.
"No longer are we going to hide behind our spectacles, specs are going to create our look," says Gok.
