Lunettes Brillenagentur, Berlin
Last weekend I visited the Lunettes Store at Torstrasse 172 in Berlin. What a beautiful boutique! They offer a huge collection of unworn vintage frames, both sun and ophthalmic. Besides that, they also have some handpicked brands (such as Clair Goldsmith, Moscot and Garrett Leight) and even more unique: their own line “Lunettes Kollektion” containing refined vintage shapes in interesting colors.
It’s a lovely story behind the lunettes shop. It all began with Uta Geyer. Uta was working as a scenery searching for vintage revisit for a theater when she came over the huge interest for vintage frames. Later on, she found such a beautiful (and cheap!) optometrists booth at eBay that she couldn’t resist to buy. One day, when sitting in a café she saw an empty boutique hall for rental… So all of a sudden she had an optometrists booth and a empty boutique just in front of her – this was a sign for the beginning of Lunettes Brillenagentur.
… More lovely pictures to come, stay tuned!
Merituuli nailed the blue look this week! Blue awesome shades from MYKITA Decades “Trueman”, matched with blue pants. I can feel the spring…!
On San Marco I saw this woman wearing these fun round sunglasses and when I asked her it turned out she’d bought them at Ottica Carraro I previously wrote about!
When I was in Venice I stopped by Ottico Carraro. It’s retty close to San Marco.
They carry many brands but they also design their own frames. really classic shapes in chunky and colorful acetate – both optical and sunglasses!
