Sporty? Simple? Funky? The current crop of spring cases will suit every wearer’s lifestyle.
There are many stylish options for patients to transport their specs. Eyeglass cases boost a shop’s incremental sales while keeping displays looking current. “It’s a great way to bring color and a fresh merchandise look for a relatively low investment,” says Jackie Breton, president, Evolutioneyes. From “go-to” companies such as Hilco offering a wide assortment to specialty finds from Peppers USA, check out the latest cases for spring ’15.
From Corinne McCormack’s Out of Africa collection, the turquoise lizard frame case brings a pop of color to any outfit while the oval magnet case in cognac animal print is a statement accessory. California Accessories’ sparkling basket sun case (Model 20092-999) is a blend of basket-like material and sparkles that match the bottom of the case. Colors comprise pink, turquoise, orange, and green.
In functional PVC, Evolutioneyes’ sunglass clam shell (Model SGC1355) in a black-and-white Ikat pattern has a funky yet timeless appeal and matches just about everything. The company’s fun zipper case (Model ZC100) in hot pink with a black eyeglass appliqué will turn heads.
In response to patients shying away from oversized clamshells, Ron’s Optical answers the call with a streamlined case line. Available in five colors, Model 92Patina has a fashionable patent exterior and a discrete appearance. It can accommodate a wide variety of frames with its appealing size of 6 in. x 2.25 in. x 1.25 in. From the new spring collection, Model 47Kate is a vertical, lightweight, semi-hard case with an easy-to-open magnetic flap.
Designed for the traveling athlete or weekend warrior who wants to ensure the protection of their eyewear, the Donut from Peppers USA helps protect the lenses from being scratched by the temples. With a tough plastic exterior and soft inner liner, the case can get tossed around without damaging glasses. A carabiner clip provides easy access. Hilco’s Dakota Sport case in navy or fuchsia also has a soft inner lining that cradles the eyewear to keep it safe.
KID AT HEART
OptiSource International’s neon-colored clamshell collection in frosted plastic with a cat face is a great attention-getter and its slanted shape adds to the fun look. Patients of all ages will clamor for this one!
