GBBO: Buy glasses just like Prue Leith's - she has her own range of specs!

The tent is up, whisks at the ready and spatulas in-hand which means only one thing. The Great British Bake Off is officially back for 2020!

The new series kicked off from Tuesday, September 22nd which sees Paul, Noel and Prue back on our screens, as well as newcomer Matt Lucas.

Prue has been a judge on the Great British Bake Off since 2017. When the show moved over to Channel 4 she replaced the Queen of baking, Mary Berry.

One thing that really makes Prue Leith recognisable is her wacky selection of glasses.

So, where can you get some just like Prue’s? Let’s see…

Mary Berry’s replacement may be verging on 80 years old but she’s bringing some serious style to the show.

Clearly not one to shy away from colour, Prue often opts for bright oranges, reds, yellows and more when it comes to her wardrobe.

And of course, you shouldn’t ever just stop at clothing. Why not spice up your glasses collection while your at it? Prue also likes to add some off-the-wall accessories to her looks including big necklaces and earrings.

Prue describes her love for colour on her website: “If you get off a train with 200 other people, they will all be wearing coats of black, grey, beige. All through the blackest winter, when we really need jollying up, no one wears the colours that would indeed, cheer them up. Sunshine yellow, orange, emerald, cerulean blue.”

Does Prue have her own glasses range?

Prue has often been seen sporting glasses from eyewear designer Kirk & Kirk.

On the Great British Bake Off, Prue often opts for a more square frame in red or blue, however, Kirk & Kirk offer all sorts of colours from turquoise to pink. The Kirk & Kirk glasses worn by Prue are priced at around £300 a pair.

In 2019, the Bake Off judge launched her own range of spectacles. She has collaborated with eyewear designer Ronit Furst on the Prue by Ronit Furst collection.

 

On her collaboration with Ronit Furst, Prue said:

“What inspired me to work with the brilliant Ronit Furst was winning the Spectacle Wearer of the Year, with the result that many people, both women and men, complimented me on my glasses and their bold colours, the reaction was really astonishing.”

The Prue by Ronit Furst collection is available in independent opticians across the UK and Ireland from the end of May 2019.
