With the upcoming premiere of Sione's 2 this month, we felt it would be fitting to do a feature on the talented actor, writer and comedian Oscar Kightley. A few months back, Oscar's character Albert was in need of some new glasses for the much awaited sequel to Sione's Wedding. Here at MHPE we were given the privilege to work alongside Oscar and costume designer Kirsty Cameron in choosing a new pair of frames for Albert.

Martin & Martin 'Lukas' was the winning frame - an angular, bold number in Black with Crystal temples, which compliments the sensible character of Albert and looks very smart when teamed with a suit and tie.

As Michael is now Oscar's optometrist, we were more than happy to sort out Oscar with some glasses of his own, too. Out of the spotlight, Oscar now wears the Zero G 'Lawrence' in Black surgical-grade titanium - one of the toughest, most flexible and lightweight metals available for eyewear. It's a different look for Oscar, but we think it suits him just as well.

Sione's 2 comes out on the 19th of January and we can't wait to see it. We plan to don our best jandals and head along to the premiere. Hopefully we'll see Oscar there in his new Zero Gs!
