Brand Spotlight | Roald Dahl frames from International Eyewear

Searching for some phizz-whizzing, scrumdiddlyumptious specs for your child? Look no further than this amazing range inspired by the work of Roald Dahl.

With World Book Day taking place this month, (4 March) we thought it was high time to take a closer look at this fantastic selection of frames.

From Matilda to The BFG and Fantastic Mr Fox to Charlie and the Chocolate factory, – it’s no wonder Roald Dahl’s stories are treasured by children and adults all over the globe.

International Eyewear has taken inspiration from some of these titles to create an array of bold, bright frames which are sure to make children keen to wear their specs.

Designs feature original Quentin Blake illustrations and quotes from the novels. Each pair is accompanied by a rather special branded case and lens cloth.

So, without further ado let’s take a look at our top five picks from this absolutely squiffling range!

The Enormous Crocodile
ROALD DAHL - THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE RD11

Inspired by The Enormous Crocodile, these feature the book’s central character along both of the sides. Dark green and chunky, these glasses are sure to be a firm favourite with children.

Matlida

ROALD DAHL - MATILDA RD19 - C2 - Patrick & Menzies (patrickandmenzies.co.uk) 

This deep blue frame takes inspiration from Matilda, the story of a brilliant young girl who discovers she has the power to move things with her mind. We love this pair because the rich colouring makes them striking in their own right, while illustrations from the book on the sides are the icing on the cake.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

ROALD DAHL - CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY RD17 - C1 - Patrick & Menzies (patrickandmenzies.co.uk) 

Wow – these glasses are beautiful. Taking inspiration from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory they look almost good enough to eat! The blue metal frame around the lenses is coupled with striking plastic sides, spiked with colour. The perfect finishing touch is the golden ticket which links the two materials.
