Happy Birthday Picasso!

Today is Pablo Picasso's birthday.  Picasso was born in Spain and spent most of his life in France where he became one of the most recognizable and influential artists of all time.

Picasso was famous for exploring different approaches to abstract painting. He is a co-founder of the Cubist movement, the inventor of constructed sculpture, and the co-inventor of the collage.

Happy birthday to Picasso.  If you're not busy this weekend check out an art exhibit going on here in Toronto!

New Lindberg Kids Eyeglasses Are Now at Spectacle

Our Yonge St. Spectacle has received some new Lindberg Kids eyewear!  The frames come in a wide range of bright colours and styles.

The weight of the eyewear is what really sets them apart from other children's glasses.  Rather than other kid's eyewear that are as heavy as adult frames, the Lindberg collection is designed entirely with children in mind.  According to Lindberg, "they look good without dominating the face... children can barely feel the glasses thanks to their lightness, flexibility, and adaptability".

The Lindberg Kids collection boasts some of the most comfortable and fashionable eyewear available for children.  Stop by our Yonge St. shop to take a look and don't forget to ask about our kids pricing packages.
