Find Your Fave New Frames With Bloobloom

Manifest that summer sunshine with a new pair of shades

If you’re not ready to splurge on a designer pair but you don’t want cheap frames that’ll snap an arm after just a few wears, then take a peek at Bloobloom. The brand, founded by Abbas and Fares Manai in 2018, blends affordable pricing – prices start at £99 – with quality craftsmanship. All the glasses and sunglasses are designed in-house and made with Zeiss lenses, Italian acetate, and custom hardware. The production involves 50 stages, including three days of wood-tumbling and hand-polishing, glazing to order, and quality checking in the Bloobloom London lab, so you can be sure that your specs have been made with real care and will still be going strong after summer.

You can get free eye tests at their stores in Marylebone, Soho, Covent Garden, White City, Canary Wharf and Chelsea if you need your prescription checking and you can do home try-on if you can’t go shopping in person. However you buy your frames, the Bloobloom ‘Pair for a Pair’ programme means that for every purchase made, a pair of glasses is donated to people who don’t have access to eyecare.

Whether you like a classic round lens and tortoiseshell pattern or you wanna make a statement with a bold red cat eye frame, there a ton of colours and designs to choose from at Bloobloom – there’s even a ‘pay what you can’ pricing option when you buy a second pair, so you don’t have to worry about just choosing one.
