for launch of Glints London
10th May 2015 Aroun Ducroux, Parisian founder of Lotho, the boutique luxury eyewear label, has created a new company, L&G Eyewear, with a new brand launch for the UK market. Glints is based in London and designed as a direct to customer brand, available exclusively to buy online. Designed by Coco Tsuji, the 16 acetate optical styles are made in Japan, have a strong style statement and a choice of colours and well crafted designs with appeal for a young, fashion-driven crowd.

Coco Tsuji told Eyestylist: “Glints is a young dynamic eyewear brand, multicultural, passionate, offbeat and original. We want this new concept to appeal to a mixed audience in the UK, those who appreciate vintage shapes and a nice twist on colours and details, and the story of the making. We also look forward to getting to know the customer directly.”
Glints’ debut collection will be available in the UK by June 2015 and will be retailed online and through a showroom space in Soho, managed by an optician. For a retail price of £135, customers will receive a handmade Japanese frame complete with lenses by Hoya. The website will also offer home try-on for those who want to try out different shapes before committing.
