A first look at the collection and a brief history.


We’re constantly on the lookout for up-coming, trendy new brands and they don’t get more up-coming and trendy than Kate Spade.


I recently met Nico Piercy, the brand manager for our area to choose the new pieces for the store:



Nico has kindly provided some insider knowledge just for you guys! So read on to find out more…


Kate Spade, the founder and the brand namesake is a former accessories editor who set out in 1993 to design the perfect ladies handbag and by 1996 had opened her first shop in NY. By 2007 Kate Spade had taken over the accessories powerhouse that was Liz Claiborne renamed Kate Spade and Company and soon after launched her Clothing and jewellery collections, also bedding, leg wear and fragrance lines. After Conquering the US and Asia, Kate Spade is now poised to take the UK by storm.


Kate Spade NY is a true feminine lifestyle brand…





The most popular optical styles are currently the Laddona and Cortina, mainly because both styles are very wearable but have a great selection of colours from playful green and blue mottled to the more traditional Havana.



The newest releases (Kariann and Kassia) are following quickly behind these two and are fast becoming best sellers and are definitely going to be the must have styles in the very near future.



I would say that the lady who is going to wear Kate Spade Ny, is looking for a frame that’s as bold as she is. There really is something for every lady in the collection. With a great mix of very simple easy to wear everyday frames to the bold Statement pieces such as the Mirele.




I absolutely love the Kate Spade sunglasses and it’s hard to pick out just one favourite. Currently my two favourite sunglasses are the LUANN/S and the GENICE/S both offer an instant hit of glamor and can really change the look of any outfit.



In January this year Kate Spade launched the eyewear line in the UK and opened the first Flagship store in the country, in Regent St, London. Since then Kate Spade as a brand has rocketed, fast becoming one of the best-selling ranges and it’s only just getting started…

Living some 300 miles from The Spectacle Factory visiting was not an option for me, however, after checking all the reviews I decided not only to buy my J.F. Rey frames (seen on an online video by Robert) but also have my Zeiss smart life progressive lenses made by them. I had no worries. After taking advice from Robert the measurements required for the lenses were done locally at a nominal cost. I am now the proud owner of a pair of handmade 'wow' glasses and a very happy new customer. Use them with confidence. The customer service is truely outstanding.

Well they you pay for what you get. It’s definitely true of The Spectacle Factory. There customer service is the best I have experienced anywhere. I was not rushed with any decision and I was made to feel like I was there most important customer. What I paid was an eye watering amount but I got smartlife ziess lenses and frames that are very comfortable. I now also have very clear vision when reading. I thought it was not clear due to lighting in modern offices and homes. Wrong it was bad lenses and persecution not being quite right. Thank you for sorting it all out at the first attempt.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT I have been using the Spectacle Factory for a long time, but the latest visit was the best BY FAR..... I desperately needed an eye test, and was fitted in quickly. James, the optician, was excellent , as usual. 4 members of staff were outstanding in the service I received. Robert, Ben and Emma were absolutely perfect.....and Ruth, the manager was excellent, as she always is. The best visit by far...I cannot rate this place higher !!!

Welcomed by and dealt with Robert during the whole process of choosing through to final fitting. Great service, great range of glasses, really helpful and informative. I would highly recommend

After reading all the positive reviews I decided that a 40 minute drive would be worth it to try and get a new prescription and frames- I wear my glasses all day so need to get this right. I was so impressed with everyone’s desire to be helpful and make sure I was happy at every part of my visit. I wasn’t the quickest at choosing new frames but never felt rushed by Robert. He listened and gave helpful advice as we worked through choosing the frames and lenses I needed. They have a huge range of frames which meant I ended up with a pair I was really happy with. I actually chose a pair of prescription sunglasses as well, which I have been meaning to do for years. I loved the combination of cutting edge technology and personalised service. It’s so nice to see a team that places such a priority on customer satisfaction - they certainly deserve 5 stars.

Fantastic service! I attended the spectacle factory over a year ago for an eye test. They were amazing, and so patient with me! My Polaroid frame broke recently, so in desperate need called the spectacle factory to order a replacement frame. They were so efficient and helpful. Also my frames were covered under warranty and I didn’t have to pay a penny. AMAZING. Couldn’t recommend them anymore!

Friendly service, thanks to Robert who took the time and care to ensure that I was happy with my new glasses. I would definitely recommend.

Visited the Spectacle Factory a couple of weeks ago for the first time. James did my eye test and was very thorough and informative. Chose a pair of glasses afterwards with the help of another member of staff. Great customer service. I have always gone to high street opticians before and never sure what glasses suit me. I was allowed to take my time and offered helpful advice. Love my new glasses which I picked up with the week. I will be returning to the Spectacle factory in the future. Far superior in terms of quality and customer service compared to other opticians I have been too.

My wife and I both have great glasses (and sunglasses) from The Spectacle Factory. Right from our very first visit we have been very impressed with the highest level of care and attention to detail, both with eye tests and the choice of lenses and frames. They seem to have a flair for helping you to choose the right glasses. Once your order is ready, nothing is too much trouble to ensure that the fit and the suitability of your glasses is perfect for your needs and that you are completely happy. Their ongoing service is second to none. We can highly recommend The Spectacle Factory..

- Alex


All the staff are so helpful and switched on to all your requirements I would recommend them all day what a good experience

The Spectacle Factory offer me the kind of customer service and ability to customise my choice of spectacles that just is simply not available on the High Street. From Initial contact, to delivery of the finished product, you are treated like a loyal friend. Nothing is too much trouble. Unbiased advise, on choosing the correct spectacles for your particular application. A vast range of frames from the very cheapest to the latest designer frames. I choose the Spectacle Factory, because they can provide me with, customised glasses, to align with my particular needs and requirements. Most high street opticians have a 'one size fits all' attitude. The Spectacle Factory does not subscribe to this theory and treats every client as an individual. Their eye sight is very comprehensive and is 50% longer than the industry standard. If you value your eyesight, and want the very best care, this is the place to visit.
