Savannah P2383 - Black

The P2383 Black frame is being worn by the established actor and writer Paul Curd who is playing the role of Dr Dorn.  This frame is one of our most popular frames because of its shiny black 1950’s Wayfarer style design and general trendy appearance.  The 1950s style has made a resurgence in fashion lately, especially with the rise of TV shows like ‘Mad Men‘.

Is ‘Geek-Chic’ an Oxymoron?

It might seem like an oxymoron but ‘geek-chic, nerd or preppy’ style is bang on trend.   For these reasons alone the P2383 black frame conforms to todays preferred image and it also features a stainless steel dot on the face of the frame to add detail.  The overall feel of the frame is on par with the more expensive designer frames that have followed this trend.   The cost of the Savannah P2383 frame including the scratch resistant lenses,  UV protection and anti-reflection treatment is just £10 per pair!

Why not see for yourself the Savannah frames and watch the the ingenious adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s play ‘The Seagull’ at Margate’s Theatre Royal.  In fact, make a day of it.  Pop into Selectspecs with or without a prescription and order your new frame(s) – and at this price why not have two pairs!

There are numerous styles that can be bought for as little as £6 or more AND this even includes the lenses, coatings and UV protection. There are no hidden costs!!

“The fantastic support and enthusiasm we have received from local businesses has been crucial. Selectspecs have been marvellous in sharing their time, resources and product range. They have been able to provide a range of frames for us to choose from which are consistent with our 50’s theme yet timeless in their styling”.

The Beat Generation and Existentialism:

The Seagull play is set in Chekhovian times but theatre producer Charmaine Hawthorne and her Carol & Maude company have imaginatively set the play against a backdrop of 1950s themes that include subculture, aka the Beat Generation. 

For those of us that are less familiar with the works of Anton Chekhov, The Seagull is considered to be one of Chekhov’s first four major plays.  The Russian dramatist wrote this play in 1895 and it was first produced in 1896.

The theme also draws on  the subsequent rise and fall of the teen and the philosophical movement of Existentialism which emphasizes on an individual’s existence, freedom and choice – meaning the responsibility and consequences of one’s actions.  Not only does this ambitious play succeed but it also seamlessly blends the classical disciplines of realism and the new wave of fine art and fashion. This is Carol & Maude’s first feature length production and it has been sponsored by the Arts Council England, MACH and Your Leisure.  

The Seagull runs from Thursday 6th February until the 9th.
