Frame of the month for March 2022

March has arrived and with it comes a new frame of the month. I love March as it’s that time of year when Christmas is a distant memory, the January blues are long gone and spring is not far away, bringing with it bursts of colour. This is why I love this month’s frame of month and the brand behind the frame. This month’s frame is La Font Delicate C3100. This month’s frame was actually chosen because of how amazing our clinical Support and administrator Charlene Bradford looked in them. What I loved about them was the fact that they are an everyday frame while still injecting some boldness from the sharp edges and cat eye shape (my favourite frame shape) of the frame. So let’s first talk about this month’s frame of the month La Font Delicate  C3100.

La Font Delicate C3100 is a beautiful frame and I can see why Charlene chose it. The frames material is acetate layered with vibrant colours of blue and orange. The shades of colours set through the frame change depending on how the light hits the frame, so one moment it can appear almost navy and burnt orange the next an ocean blue and sun kissed orange. It really is just an absolutely gorgeous frame. I personally would wear this frame with shades of greys, turquoise and whites to set off the beautiful orange and blue colours. As usual I could talk about our frame of the month all day long but I also think we should hear a little more about the brand behind the frame.  

La Font is a brand with over 90 years of history. The brand has an emphasis on elegance and strong family values, which as a family run business itself, is an ethos we believe in ourselves too. La Font was set in 1923 in Rue Vignon in Paris’s Madeleine district, by Louis Lafont as a small boutique selling hearing aids and spectacles, now that brand has collaborated with major fashion houses such as Hermès and Chanel and operates four boutiques exports to over forty countries! The frames are hand made in France and much like the frames of 1920/1930s they still have the same style and colour combinations today. The Brand La Font has a OFG (Guaranteed French Origin) label giving every frame a certification of impeccable quality. Every frame offers the wearer both style and boldness.
