FOUNDED BY EYE SURGEON DR. JULIE DIEM LE, ZOOBUG’S MISSION IS TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL, HIGH-QUALITY GLASSES AND SUNGLASSES FOR CHILDREN.
Established in London, Zoobug was the first independent eyewear label to specialize in frames exclusively for children. It all began when Dr Julie Diem Le discovered a lack of variety and quality in children’s eyewear when she was out shopping for sunglasses for her 1-year-old niece, Emma. Since that time, Zoobug has become a specialist in creating unique features for adjusting the fit of the frames on the face, for all European, Asian and tiny infant faces. Zoobug joined Mondottica in July 2015.
Zoobug’s award-winning eyewear has been developed especially for infants and children aged from 0 to 12 years. Since 2006, Zoobug has been creating colorful, handcrafted frames and sunglasses. In 2012, the brand was chosen to produce the official kids’ sunglasses collection for the London Olympics (2012). ”Our belief is that all children should wear properly fitting frames designed to protect their sight and let them look gorgeous!”, Dr. Julie Diem Le (Zoobug Founder and Ophthalmologist).
ZOOBUG OPTICAL COLLECTION
ZOOBUG’S OPTICAL COLLECTIONS OFFER BEAUTIFULLY MADE, EXQUISITELY CRAFTED PRODUCTS OFFERING EXCELLENT DESIGN, DURABILITY AND EASE OF WEAR.
Zoobug’s optical range for babies to 12 years combines technical features with functionality and style to create 3 key ranges: Fashion, Everyday and Active. Never a scaled down version of an adult frame, Zoobug’s expertise is designing specifically for kids’ needs.
Zoobug’s three optical collections blend style and fashion with comfort and fit to suit all children’s faces. The designs highlight popular, easy-to-wear materials, retro-inspired shapes and specialist details, to ensure kids feel happy and confident in their glasses.
ZOOBUG SUN COLLECTION
ZOOBUG’S SUNGLASS COLLECTION, TRUE TO THE BRAND’S CORE VALUES OF INNOVATION, DESIGN AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL, HIGHLIGHTS BOLD COLOR AND DECORATIVE TOUCHES INCLUDING ENCHANTING, MINIATURE PRINTS.
Zoobug’s Sunglass collection celebrates bold color, fashion forward design and adult-quality polarized UV protection. Winner of 2015 Junior Design Award for Best Travel Product for Children. Much loved by mini Royals and celebrities’ kids worldwide.
Designed for the utmost comfort throughout the day, in the pram and during busy children’s activities, the smaller infant frames are fitted with a surgical grade silicon saddle, developed by children’s eyewear specialist Dr. Julie Diem Le. Giving support to the child’s nose, this new innovative detail makes the frames secure and ensures eyelashes do not touch the sunglass lenses. Rounded temples also play a part in achieving a comfortable, snug fit over the ears.
Styled in line with the latest fashion trends, the multicolored collection introduces lacework prints, miniature checks and diamonds, and nautical stripes. Bold blocked colors contrast with bright white linings and colored end tips in a rainbow of strong, neon tones and pretty pastel shades.
Favorite fashion shapes with individuality and style are typical of Zoobug’s creative flair: the statement Daisy is accompanied by the Round, a circular design with cute narrow bridge, perfect for girls; also featured is a cool flattop, Super, a new acetate Aviator and two wonderful, desirable fashion designs, models Chic and Squarefarer.
