Artist and eyewear designer Ronit Furst, is delighted to announce the launch of their new collection, Prue by Ronit Furst. The exclusive collaboration with entrepreneur, restaurateur and cook Prue Leith, builds on the essence and individuality of Ronit Furst’s hand painted collection.
As a long-term wearer of Ronit Furst’s hand painted eyewear collection, Prue’s unique style, flair and love of colour created the perfect synergy with the designs. Having worn Ronit Furst for 12 years, the collaboration between designer and entrepreneur evolved through Prue’s love of Ronit’s designs. Together the women have developed an extensive range of over 72 eyewear pieces designed by Ronit for likeminded women who want to infuse their everyday style with the quality and vibrancy the brand are known for.
Prue Leith comments “What inspired me to work with the brilliant Ronit Furst was winning the spectacle Wearer of the Year, with the result that many people, both women and men, complimented me on my glasses and their bold colours, the reaction was really astonishing”.
Ehud Bibring, Ronit Furst Eyewear CEO comments: "for several years we have been playing with the idea to produce a non-hand-painted collection that will take our design spirit and offer it to a larger audience, experimenting with several concepts and many production technics to do so but none of them clicked. As we discussed the concepts of a new eyewear line with Prue, we felt that all the dots connected, her vision of an elaborate, high quality collection that is also unique and innovative enough to be a personality highlight for the wearer was exactly what we were aiming for. We accepted the challenge and I am very glad we did, seeing the first collection I believe we have succeeded to bring both our visions together."
Known for her vibrant style, the collection Prue by Ronit Furst embodies designer eyewear with playful colour-pop accents. Over 72 different eyewear pieces in bold and colourful tones such as blue, red, green and purple are colour-blocked alongside unique patterns including tortoise shell and multi-coloured frames for men and women.
The collection will be available in independent opticians across the UK and Ireland from the end of May 2019. For more information visit www.ronitfurst.com
I really believe that beautifully colourful glasses are a morale booster. I feel distinctly more confident wearing mine. I have built up quite a collection of Ronit Furst over the years so the collaboration happened very naturally.
I have, I confess, a good few pairs and I pick one each morning like choosing a necklace or shoes.
