Jimmy Choo is all about luxury. The handbags, shoes and other accessories made by the company are luxurious in the most obvious of ways. Their eyewear follows suit, and includes small details like bejeweled earpieces and shiny metal frames. Although some of their frames are made of acetate, and are of classic shapes and styles, there is something about them that shouts opulence, only without the extreme price tag.
Jimmy Choo was founded in Great Britain in Jimmy Choo, a shoe designer, and Tamara Mellon, who worked for Vogue at the time. They started with high heeled shoes and expanded to include leather handbags and wallets, as well as eyewear. Although neither of the founders is still with the company, their legacy lives on through the current designer Sandra Choi.
The sunglasses, prescription eyeglass frames and prescription sunglasses made by Jimmy Choo are solely for women. They are well-made and their classic, understated designs in mostly neutral colors are meant to be flattering on many different face shapes and sizes. Some of their frames are in colors like pink, orange, tortoiseshell and animal prints, but even then, they remain sedate and fashionable, mostly due to the use of small prints rather than large overwhelming ones. Vision Gallery sells a number of Jimmy Choo frames in many of these styles, colors and patterns.
