The sun is out! Yes, we wear sunglasses
and sunscreen in London too 🙂 As I was going through my summer accessories, I realized my sunglasses needed a lift. Guess where I find out about up-and-coming brands? On Instagram! I like browing fashion accounts and that’s how I found out about L’usine à Lunettes by Polette. The name -which literally means the Eyewear Factory in French- immediately caught my eye 😉 This innovative concept allows Polette to compete with the world’s leading eyewear brands. I decided to give it a try to see if the quality of the products was as good as its prices.
L’usine à lunettes’ business model is simple: it offers a direct delivery between the factory and the client. There is no stock which allows the company to sell their products at incredibly low prices (about 80% lower than market price). Those pairs are sold between 9,99€ to 49,99€ (about £7.8 and£38). The designs are updated every week. That makes the brand, and you, pretty unique: what you will buy now, no one else will be able to get the same design a week later!
Quality vs. Price
I am very pleased with these two pairs. The quality is as good as a pair of sunglasses I would have bought at a “regular” store. On the website (at check out) you have the option to add more accessories, cases and totes but the standard price includes the pair of sunglasses and the Polette cloth.
For a chance to win a 50% discount code and a pair of designer eyewear for about 10 Euros (£7.9) enter my Instagram contest here. The price allows me to stock up for the summer and I hope that you will love it too!
