Welcome back to another Red Hot Round-up here at RHS. Every week, we gather up all of the biggest and most interesting sunglasses and eyewear news stories and put them into one place. The eyewear industry is very diverse, so we often cover fashion, technology, and our own RHS news, such as new products, competitions, and sales. Last week, we looked at Alana Hadid’s (Gigi Hadid’s sister) new line of sunglasses and an experimental payment scheme in Australia using contactless payment devices attached to the arms of sunglasses. This week, we’re looking at new customisable running sunglasses from a start-up called Skelmet, Adidas’s new Zonyk Aero sunglasses for cyclists, and our buying trip to London earlier this week.

Welcome back to this week’s Red Hot Round-up. Each week, we gather together everything that’s been happening in the eyewear world and put it all in one place. It’s the perfect place to get all the eyewear news for the week, without having to look all over for it. Last week, we talked about the big merger in the eyewear industry between Luxottica and Ellisor. This week, we’re looking at some of our latest lucky prize winners bloggers who are talking about and wearing our sunglasses, and the launch of Prada Eyewear’s exclusive new collection of Cinéma sunglasses.

 

January Giveaway Extravaganza Continues

On previous round-ups, we reported on our incredible giveaways throughout January. Our thinking was that January was the longest, most miserable month of the year, and that it would be great to cheer everyone up a little bit with some amazing eyewear giveaways. We ran everything on our social media platforms, which include Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, so that we could talk directly to our customers and potential customers.

In one giveaway, we gave followers the chance to win their choice of four sunglasses.
