Recently I was lucky enough to be invited to view the OPSM Eye Hub event that showcased Spring/Summer13 collections from some of the most coveted high-end international designer brands. (For those of you not in the loop..OPSM is Melbourne's ultimate eyewear fashion destination located in Hawthorn, Melbourne)

From the moment you walk in to the eye hub you become completely immersed in designer eye wear and sunglasses, but that's not the best part... I legitimately paused at the front door to appreciate how different this hub actually was. 

It is displayed and set out completely different to any other optical store you would of ever seen & to make life easier for you they have placed their products in to categories; optical and sunglasses and then by designer. 

After some light refreshments and introduction it was time for me to view each collection and boy did each collection prove to be even better then i could of imagined it would. 

This Spring/Summer it appears designers have opted for a 'point of difference' in their eye wear, whether its for optical or sunglasses, through colour, shape, textural finishes or even collapsable sunglasses.

Like me I'm sure you all own your fare share of rayban wayferers and aviators and oversized frame Prada sunglasses, but if you're ready to take a step towards something different then this Spring/Summer is the perfect time to make new purchases.

If i had to choose favourites for a point of difference and designers pushing new boundaries they would include; Ray-Ban Clear Acetate Reflective Aviators, Burberry Whip Stitch Sunglasses, Miu Miu Apple Sunglasses, Giorgio Armani's matte acetate finish range, Dolce and Gabbana pastel floral detailsMiu Miu have also produced yet again an amazing range with different lenses shapes and colours.

But at the end of the day i couldn't go past the tortoise shell Prada's (see the first photo), which mind you wasn't an easy choice venturing outside of a black frame which i usually opt for.

 I was incredibly lucky to be gifted with these from OPSM

A big thank you again to OPSMyour staff & AWPR- the experience couldn't have been better!
