British heritage brand Laura Ashley and Kasperek Optical, a family-owned and operated optical distributor and manufacturer, have partnered on a signature range of women’s eyewear.
The first collection consists of twelve ophthalmic styles inspired by Laura Ashley’s rich heritage. The collection has recently been launched on kasperekoptical.com and to independent optical and retailers nationwide.
“Laura Ashley is thrilled to partner with Kasperek Optical,” says Penne Cairoli, President of Laura Ashley, Inc. (Americas). “Seasoned industry experts, Kasperek Optical has created a timeless eyewear collection with feminine touches that will delight Laura Ashley’s loyal fans and new customers alike.”
“We are beyond excited to be collaborating with Laura Ashley in launching a brand-new ophthalmic collection. Marrying almost 70 years of Laura Ashley inspiration alongside Kasperek Optical’s 45 years of optical expertise is a perfect partnership,” adds Justin Kasperek, President of Kasperek Optical.
Inspired by Laura Ashley’s understated elegance and iconic florals, the collection offers feminine frames for modern women who want eyewear with a sense of heritage, style, and quality. Easy to wear and featuring flattering shapes designed to highlight the face, the eyewear marries the highest quality materials with intricate and graceful detailing.
The lightweight eyewear line offers shapes including modern versions of cat eyes, rounds, and oversized rectangles in acetate and metal that are unseen on the current optical market. Colors range from rose, nutmeg, light blue, and soft demi’s interpreted from the coloration of Laura Ashley’s color palette.
