At Roger Pope Opticians we offer a fine range of spectacle cords and chains that meet the lifestyle and requirements of each user. Our in house buying team seasonally purchases our collections ensuring that not only are they practical but stylish too. Our collection regularly changes depending on the time of year but the most common brands that we stock are Valorose and La Loop.
Valrose, based in Beaumes de Venise in the south of France at the foot of the " Mont Ventoux", has been creating stylish and sophisticated spectacle accessories since 1993. The handmade accessories are known for their fabulous quality and all of their products are made of natural materials, selected for their quality: Pure wool felt, trimmings, leather and velvet are just some of the fine materials that are used within their designs. Valrose’s chic and practical accessories turn the traditional spectacle chain into a statement piece that combines effortlessly and elegantly with the design of your spectacles.
Founded by a financial executive, who wore her glasses hanging on the loop of a necklace she’d made in partnership with a 47th Street jeweler and a fashion industry veteran who honed her eye at Figaro Madame, Guerlain, and GUESS, La LOOP has became one of, if not the, biggest manufacturers of spectacle chains in the World.
Since its launch in 1999 the brand has proved to constantly innovate beautiful eyewear accessories that push the concept of style and fashion. Their bright, colourful and contemporary designs have gained legions of followers across the world; all united by the brand’s forward thinking and innovative strategy.
On the brand, co-founder Elizabth Faraut says, “My vision is evolving alongside La LOOP’s designed-in-L.A. collections, found in a hand-picked array of boutiques from Isetan Tokyo’s famed department store to Gorsuch in Aspen and Vail to optical innovators like Robert Marc in New York City and TheGrommet.com where digital seekers find our latest pieces.”
