Osiris launch party at The Gherkin

Osiris - Henry Holland & Amy He

180m above The City of London, Henry Holland was a DJ. I had the privilege of dancing to his playlist at the launch party of Osiris eyewear's Jørgen Simonsen collection, which was held at the very top of 30 St Mary Axe, fondly known as "The Gherkin".

The 360° views of the capital were spectacular, especially during sundown. It seemed a fitting location to introduce a new collection of glasses, as without my own, I would not have been able to appreciate the amazing architecture of the building, or the breathtaking panorama that surrounded me.

The glasses themselves, styled by haute couture designer Jørgen Simonsen, were much to be admired for their modern and vibrant designs. The frames come in a wide selection of colours, plus such design features as translucence, smoky effects, layered acetates and more. They are respectfully statement eyewear, and I am immensely looking forward to choosing a pair for myself very soon. My only hope is Specsavers can present them to me with a big box of jelly beans, just like at the party.
