October 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

It’s that time of year when everyone needs a bit of a style overhaul.  We’ve got the pick of the Autumn/Winter 2010 collections arriving in high street and designer stores, so there is no excuse to miss a trick when it comes to the latest trends.  Not one to be left in the dark, WantSunglasses has had its very own A/W makeover and we’re sure you’re going to love it.

Thanks to a complete redesign, the website looks hot to trot!

With all the best of the new designer collections up and online from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, D&G and Yves Saint Laurent, we are here to help you complete the perfect winter look.  Accessorise your oh so trendy camel coat with the latest Balenciaga beauties, or team your beloved shearling aviator jacket with the infamous Ray-Ban Aviator.  Let WantSunglasses be the ones to provide your finishing touches this season.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that now the summer has passed there is no call for sunglasses.  Low sitting sun and road glare are still good enough excuses to get the Pradas out and, let’s face it, us girls (and I’m sure you boys are the same) really don’t need much excuse to ramp up the glamour factor in any situation.




Also, launching in the next couple of weeks at WantSunglasses is our range of Oakley ski goggles.  Taking a fashionable jaunt to the piste to try out your D&G winter warmers?  Why not make Oakley your choice de jour when it comes to your ski goggles?  The Oakley Stockholm is the perfect choice for any female taking to the slopes for ski season.  With Oakley, you can trust that they know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to keeping you safe and comfortable, so all you have to worry about is the fabulous outfit you’ll be wearing underneath your ski gear.

Also, for those moments spent dining and relaxing at the peak of the piste, you’ll need some super stylish sunglasses to keep up with the Jones’s and keep that nasty snow glare out of your eyes.  All of our sunglasses are 100% UV protective and we have a great range of polarized sunglasses which are superior at blocking glare.

Take your stylish steps with WantSunglasses this Autumn/Winter season.

Chilean Miners given a helping hand by Oakley Sunglasses…

October 14, 2010 § 2 Comments

It is a headline that has captured the world, the 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for 69 days have finally been rescued thanks to a mammoth operation by the Chilean authorities.

Chile’s President has praised the rescue efforts and has declared that his country will never be the same again after this extraordinary event.  President Sebastian Pinera has said that he feels Chile is now “more united and stronger than ever” and “more valued” worldwide.

This can’t be doubted after seeing the ecstatic scenes of the final miner to be rescued, Luis Urzua, emerging into the light and out of the rescue shaft capping off a 22 hour operation.

While they are showing signs of ill heath, not one of the miners is in a serious condition which is amazing seeing as no one has ever survived as long trapped underground.

One of the aspects of the rescue that was vital to their health was the donation of Oakley sunglasses to protect their eyes upon emerging into the light.  Oakley were approached about donating sunglasses and were only too honored to be able to assist in any way that they could.  Oakley provided 35 pairs of Oakley Radar sunglasses that are designed to minimise heavy glare.

The single lens shield is a wraparound style that uses the darkest lens with a grey base and black iridium coating which would serve to help the miners’ eyes adjust to bright light after being dilated so long.  The Oakley Radar sunglasses are typically used for high performance sports and feature an exterior hydrophobic coating that would have prevented water, mud, oil and dust from building up on the surface as the miners were hoisted to freedom.

There is concern for the miners’ sight and the possibility of damage to the retina.  After being in the dark for a long period, the mechanisms by which the retina protects itself from damage from bright light can diminish.

Lets hope that the Oakley Radar Sunglasses were of some help to the miners’ sight, only time will tell.
