Online fashion eyewear boutique, Eyefly.com, launched their Spring 2012 Collection today, adding handmade acetate and metal optical frames in signature shapes, fashion-forward color combinations, and distinct textures. In addition to the 27 new optical styles introduced, Eyefly has launched its first line of reading glasses consisting of 22 styles available in four prescription strengths—at a value of $59. All optical frames and sunglasses are $99, and include anti-reflective, anti-scratch prescription lenses.
“The fashion-conscious customer has so few options when it comes to affordable prescription eyewear,” observes Melissa Payner, CEO of Eyefly’s parent company Bluefly, Inc. “We launched Eyefly to fill that void.”
Visitors to Eyefly.com can take style inspiration from real customers, as well as models and fashion industry style stars, courtesy of images by fashion photographer Anna Wolf and celebrated Street Style Photoblogger Tommy Ton. Payner continues, “Just as Bluefly delivers the designer trends customers crave at an incredible value, Eyefly delivers on-trend eyewear at a price point that liberates the customer to treat prescription glasses like the fashion accessories they are. Our customer doesn’t own one pair of shoes or one handbag—so why one pair of glasses?”
Eyefly also offers an intuitive and interactive shopping experience. Users can enter their prescription from the convenience of their keyboards, and virtually try on multiple frames. By uploading a picture or using their webcam, Eyefly’s use of FittingBox technology allows shoppers to not only see how the glasses look on them, but easily solicit advice from friends via Facebook and email to aid their decision making process.Eyefly is the result of a collaboration between leading online fashion retailer Bluefly, Inc.
