Kylie Minogue is in Australia to launch a new range of glasses bearing her name. She told Daily Life about how she’s coped with the break-up of her engagement to Joshua Sasse, and the plans for her new album. What made you decide to do a range of eye wear, especially at this time in your life/career?

I’m celebrating 30 years of making music, and for me this was the perfect opportunity to incorporate a new creative process. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 22, so optical and sunglasses are a part of my everyday life, and this felt very authentic and exciting. Celebrity collaborations are a dime a dozen. What makes this one different?

The collection is inspired by my own life and is made for everyone who wears glasses and looks for quality and style. I had to really stop and think about how I wear my own glasses, what makes me choose a certain style and lens, on what occasions I wear them, how they make me feel and how I could create a collection for others to enjoy. I started by amassing all the various frames I own, some of which are over 20 years old. They were so diverse – designer brands, cheap and cheerful as well as vintage frames. It really didn’t matter where they came from, rather, they all represented a different era, style or purpose. What was the most interesting thing you learned from working on the project?

There was so much to consider – from shape, size and colour to texture, materials and finishing touches. I wanted styles that I would wear and styles that might not necessarily suit me but would work for my friend or loved one.

Glasses are not only functional but can be a great way to express yourself and to change your look. As frames around your eyes, glasses are perhaps one of the most important aspects of how you style yourself. I like to be able to go from functional in the day, to a little more glamour in the evening, but it’s not just about day and night, it’s about glasses to match your mood or style on any given day. With hindsight, what career and personal decisions would you have made differently?

Hindsight is illuminating but not always what we want to see. I certainly wished I hadn’t stressed quite as much or had such insecurity at times. I wish I had trusted my instincts on some occasions when I didn’t and I wish I had listened to better advice when I didn’t. But overall, I have to look at the glass as half full and acknowledge that I am all of the moments of my life, the good and the not so good. Hah, there’s definitely some fashion moments I would rather forget! What’s a song you wish you had written?

Oh God, where to even start!? I just heard Cyndi Lauper’s Time After Time on the radio today and as it’s fresh in my mind and I have always loved it, I’ll go with that one for starters! You’ve had some ups and downs this year, how are you feeling?

I feel great actually. It’s not been the easiest times of late but that [her split from fiance Joshua Sasse] is a purely personal matter and I have no regrets. Life is about love and experience and learning and evolving and I am richer and thankful for all of the experiences in my life. I’m also very touched and thankful for the generous support from my fans.

Looking ahead, I’ve already started to work on my new album. Being back in the studio and working with a new team, everything feels really fresh and exciting. The early stage of the recording process is always energising and I’m looking forward to the year ahead. At a time like this, what is the best advice to get?

My current motto is to go for it, whatever it is that inspires you. Having said that, I am mindful of achieving the right balance in my life and am working hard on that also. To enjoy the little moments of goodness when they appear, to be present with the people I love and to spread light wherever possible.

The Kylie Minogue Eyewear collection, exclusive to Specsavers, will be available in stores nationwide from Thursday.
