Since The Great British Bake Off aired in the UK our customers have been asking us a lot about “Prue Leith glasses”!
Throughout the series Prue had been wearing some rather bright and colourful glasses, clothes and accessories to match. To answer the question on everyone’s lips – the eyewear brand she had been wearing is Ronit Furst!
About Ronit Furst
Each one of their frames is hand painted. This is what gives Ronit Furst the freedom to produce almost every pattern and color combination that we (or rather Ronit) can imagine. Looking closely one can actually see the paintbrush strokes and the texture of the paint, just like a painting on canvas. After the painting is done the frame undergo a special coating procedure, which will give it it’s finished look – crystal shiny or sandy matt – and which also protects the painting from dirt and other unwanted effects.
The frames are designed to look different from every angle, with fine detail and tiny embellishments, graduated color schemes and asymmetric designs. The ethos of the range is to create quirky, individual styles that capture the wearer’s personality.
Which Ronit Furst glasses does Prue Leith wear on The Great British Bake Off?
Reliable sources tell us that Prue’s glasses were models 5060-33, 5060-J1, 5024-17 and 5060-J3.
All of them do come in a range of colours so if you like that style she was wearing but want it in another colour then that is available.
