You may have noticed the PropShop24 website and social media profiles looking extra cool of late. There is one major reason for this – Far Left sunglasses. Yes, that’s right we launched a new private label of sunglasses, and we couldn’t be more excited with the new venture!
If you’re wondering about the meaning of the name, well we’re spilling the beans on everything! We sat down with Gunjan Malhotra from the merchandise team, to get all the answers about this new range of sunglasses, available exclusively on PropShop24.
Here’s what she had to say.
Team PropShop24: Who and what sparked the idea of creating a private label of sunglasses?
Gunjan Malhotra: Between the high-end sunnies and the cheap replicas, there was a gap for something unique. A gap that needed to be filled with high-street sunglasses, covering different types of trends and had UV protection.
This is why we thought of Far Left.
Q2: Of all the popular products available on PropShop24, why sunglasses?
GM: Sunglasses were on top of our list for many reasons. Firstly, they are a holiday accessory! Secondly, sunglasses are an accessory that both men and women wear. Plus, a lot of our styles are gender-neutral – which is so on trend now. Lastly, it’s an easy-to-carry accessory that adds personality to your look, and something everyone needs on a daily basis.
Q3: Who came up with the name ‘Far Left’ and what does it mean/stand for?
GM: PropShop24’s co-founder Amtosh Singh came up with the name Far Left. We felt the name embodied a left-wing, liberal approach to every ideology. Far Left is all about being out of the box and breaking the monotony – exactly what we aim to follow with this private label.
Q4: Give us the top three reasons why this range of sunglasses is a step above the rest?
GM: Again, there are so many reasons, however, on the top of my head:
1) It’s affordable, the sunglasses range from Rs. 800 to 1500.
2) It’s Trendy – we spent a lot of time analysing all the current trends, and we’ve tried to make sure all of them are covered. PS – I personally love the reading glass collection.
3) UV Protection – You may not know this, but a lot of high-street brands don’t have this primary feature with their sunglasses. Which is why we wanted to include it in our range of sunglasses. What more do you need?
Q5: What were the main themes/inspirations behind some of the styles?
GM: We’ve tried to cover multiple trends! From the classics to some black statement pieces, we’ve got it all. There are even some uber cool retros styles that come in a bunch of colours. Plus, tinted glasses and micros sunglasses are hot right now, which is why we have ample styles to suit your personality. Something I personally love from the collection is the variety of reading glasses. Even if you don’t have a number, you’ll be tempted to buy one of our stylish pairs.
Q6: Name a celebrity you’d love to see rock a pair of Far Left sunglasses, why?
GM: No one better than Ranveer Singh – his style is fantastic! His outfits are out of the world, unique and OTT – just like Far Left. It would be amazing to see him in one of our sunnies! Ranveer, If you’re reading this, give us a call, we’ll love to send a box over!
Q7: After sunglasses, what is next? What new private labels can Proppers expect to see in the future?
GM: Can’t say much, but we are looking at disrupting the accessory space. So stay tuned, something is coming your way, super soon! 🙂
