This article covers some of the new releases from one our favourite frame designers; Jean Francois Rey. His brand, J F Rey, is known for unique, avant-garde eyewear that tends to be 1-2 seasons ahead of the pack when it comes to trends. You could say Jean Francois Rey creates the fashions, rather than follows them. If you’re looking for the ultimate designer glasses, this is where you should start. J F Rey frames are also very expressive in their use of colour. The new J F Rey releases exclusive to our store all fit into the following categories:

Fine Concept pieces are J F Rey's take on the minimalist trend in designer glasses.

We’ve talked a lot about minimalism being a big trend recently, and this has brought rimless glasses back into focus. The ‘Fine Concept’ frames are a completely new take on rimless eyewear, and we love the way J F Rey has somehow made minimalist glasses, bold. Combine these frames with a tint for an even more effective look.

Delys styles are aviator-style designer glasses with simply stunning colouration.

We’re not quite sure what ‘Delys’ means. But we’re in no doubt about what Delys frames stand for – ultra on-trend aviator styles in eye-catching colour combinations. The colours are applied by hand using a syringe for a stark contrast between the frames’ primary and secondary tones.

The Wave collection features designer glasses with multiple sections in contrasting colours, in full-frame and semi-rimless variants.

The beautiful intricacy of Wave frames makes them stand apart from any other designer glasses. They take a bit of getting used to when you first try them on, but be brave with your choice and you’ll be rewarded with lots of compliments and curiosity from other people.

The Shell collection feature designer glasses with a 'double rim' which was first conceived of by Jean Francois Rey.

The ‘Shell’ concept is a favourite of ours, a collection we pre-ordered at the end of last year. The newest shapes are more geometric and angular, which adds to their effectiveness (reminiscent of these Chloe styles which have been super popular this year). These frames look amazing as sunglasses, too, as you can see from the Instagram post below:

In Summary.

Designer glasses from J F Rey collection are not cheap – they are all designed and hand-made in France in relatively small quantities. They cost around £400, but you are getting a level of quality and exclusivity that is hard to find nowadays, where so many glasses look the same.

We now offer personal styling advice by video call as well as in-store, so no matter where you are, you can experience the full J F Rey collection and find your perfect pair of designer glasses. Speak to Robert by either calling us on 01772 312213 or emailing for a personal style consultation. There will also be a video review of the new J F Rey collections coming soon to our YouTube channel.

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..

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.
