Announcing #DowntonVision

Today is the day! The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Yes, the Downton Abbey movie has hit the big screen and will take you right back to the 1920s English countryside! To celebrate, we thought it only fitting to host a photo contest!

Starting today until October 20th 2019, we want you to send us your best eyewear selfies. The rules are simple: include #DowntonVision in your selfie posts! That’s it! We’ll select winners shortly after the contest ends!

The Roaring Twenties and Eyewear: your guide to glasses in the early 20th Century

Today, we take eyewear a little bit for granted. Endless styles, futuristic technology, and availability to everyone. Glasses are a common commodity, and the world can see better because of it. But for the next few minutes, let us transport you to the 1910s and 1920s, where optometry innovations made glasses mainstream and fashionable. With Downton Abbey releasing this Friday, we thought it was only appropriate to turn the dials on our time machine and learn about optometry of the era, the technology behind eyeglasses at the time, and then style of the age. 

Downtown Visions’s Fall 2019 Frame Fashion Guide

The second Starbucks whips out the Pumpkin Spice Latte, fall has begun. No more shall we abide by the Gregorian Calendar. No longer shall we be held hostage by outdated fashion rules that ban wearing white past Labor Day! Begone, September 21st! You are no longer the signifier of autumn! Fall is a season known for warm colors despite the cooler weather (something I’m sure we can all agree we’re ready for here in Reno).

Staying Shady in the Summertime

They’re everywhere. Every time you step outside, if you don’t have them on, chances are you’ll see someone with them on. They’re at your favorite lunch spot and your favorite café. You’ll see them everywhere you go. And they’re here to help. Sunglasses are a part of everyday life, as widespread and common as any other part of an outfit. But they’re much more than a fashion piece or a symbol of looking cool. They are a critical component of your eye health and safety.

Bespoke No More?

Bespoke anything is good. To have a bespoke dress or suit is to have a fashionable, customized piece is unique and valuable. Having something designed for you puts it above anything else in the wardrobe. It takes your look to the next level, to know an item is one-of-a-kind and made to fit you perfectly. And in the case of glasses, fit matters.
