When I first heard about wooden eyewear, I didn’t expect it to be particularly stylish. I conjured up images of clunky, chunky styles that were unrefined, unfinished and that carried a risk of splinters. It turned out that I barking up the wrong tree. Wooden frames are gathering commercial pace, not only because they are sustainable and conscious consumerism is on the up, but because the designs are beautiful. They have a whispered elegance about them. A subtle coolness. And because wood is a natural product, its inherent variations mean that every frame is unique.
FreshforPandas is a London based online store which specialises in fresh eco-friendly wood and bamboo eyewear. The company’s aim is to contribute to the reduction of plastic use. They have an extensive range of handmade bamboo and wooden eyewear which they ship from a carbon-neutral warehouse facility in Manchester.
This round oversized design, (model 3005), is a striking combination of striped wood and lightweight stainless steel. It’s chic and elegant yet it has a softness to it. It makes a style statement but an attainable and an approachable one. When I first showed my daughter Poppy, (who’s almost 18), she said it reminds her of something a French 1950s film star would wear. Praise indeed. And that made me think that it would look fabulous with the colours of le tricolore.
My spotted blouse and wide-legged jeans were from Boden last season. (At the time of writing however, the jeans are still available in most sizes in the clearance section). My shoes are a year older still.
The red tassel earrings are current though. They’re a gift and I wore the black version with my snake print dress in a recent blog post.
