Shakespeare, Byron and Orwell – just the names conjure up a feeling of British pride and greatness. So, imagine how excited we’ve been, helping with the launch of a stylish new eyewear range which drew inspiration from these and other notable historic figures.

Our excitement nearly spilled over last night – after months of hard work and planning, the team from The Optoplast Actman Eyewear Company, unveiled Walter & Herbert. The quintessentially English eyewear collection borne from over 65 years’ experience, was showcased at the Old Bengal Bar, London.

The intimate occasion was attended by a host of media, retailers and clients who loved the 20 piece optical collection. Many expressed their delight at the fact that every frame in the range is designed, manufactured and tested in England.
