Knowledge is Power: The La Loop Solution

It’s summer, and with summer comes fabulous sunglasses in all colors and shapes. This is great and all, but with all those wonderful shades and opticals, there comes a time when they need to be taken off or switched and what do you do with them?

Putting them on your head is seriously taboo. It stresses the frame and stretches the fit. If are a consistent offender you are putting the temples (the ‘arms’ of your glasses) at risk of damage and breaking.

Stashing them on the collar of your shirt is an ill-fated move that generally results with them crashing to the floor when you bend over or really move at all.

Pockets are just not a good idea for the obvious reason that they are easily scratched and broken.

Setting them down just anywhere means higher chance of losing them, sitting on them, or having them become your pet’s new favourite chew toy.

And let’s be honest, taking them off and putting them in a case takes time and effort and most of us are lazy.

Well fear not my dear friends! We have the solution at Gafas.

The company La Loop was created in 1999 just for this very reason. No longer do you have to worry about the safety of your glasses or suffer the embarrassment of granny leashes. The hinges on either side of the loop keep your glasses in place and secure. AND they look super cool and can double as jewellery when you’re wearing your frames. Designer Elizabeth Faraut introduces a new collection two times a year, and the line is carried at over 500 stores across 16 countries.

So what are you waiting for? Come on in and get your La Loop solution!
