See Concept: reading glasses, reimagined

You know you need to pick up your game when your parents start telling you about the latest trends. So it was only natural that my dad would introduce me to See Concept, a stylish new range of eyewear for the fashion forward.

See Concept was imagined by a trio of designers hailing from Lyon, France whose, ahem, vision is to “facilitate eyesight on a daily basis”. They each witnessed their parents constantly misplacing their glasses (I can relate) so set about creating a line of chic, ready-to-wear reading glasses and sunglasses to make life just that little bit easier.

It’s a fact, we’ll all need glasses at some point in our lives, so why not look great wearing them? Now featured in fashion retailers in some of the world’s leading sartorial capitals including Paris, New York and London, See Concept’s products are functional, affordable and fun.


I road tested a pair of reading glasses and sunglasses from See Concept and can’t imagine my life without them. For the shortsighted among us, the dream of reaching for a pair of fashionable sunnies complete with magnified lens is now a reality and my tortoise specs have become a handbag staple. My favourite features are the flexible hinges, meaning you don’t need to worry about snapping the arms of your glasses off (but be careful, they aren’t completely immortal!), the lightweight nature of the glasses and the 100% UV protection.


I went for a slightly more rectangle shape in the reading glasses, opting for Style B, otherwise known as Let Me See in white. It was like the fog had cleared when I put these on and I’ve had countless compliments from work colleagues about how great they look.
