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!
Calle della Mandola
I just love this matte rubberized surface.
When in Bologna, Italy do not miss one of the best optician’s I’ve been to:
Ottica Giulietti e Guerra
Via Clavature, 24
Garrett Leight in the window.
There you can find most of the top eyewear brands worth mentioning such as Oliver Peoples, Garrett Leight, MYKITA, Theo, Harry Lary’s, Thierry Lasry, just to name a few. They have a few stores in Bologna and this is one of them. Very nice staff too!
Harry Lary’s beautiful acetate!
Thierry Lasry always had the craziest acetate!
The lovely Caroline Abram that makes the beautiful eyewear accessories we’ve posted about a few times about also makes fantastic glasses.
Last weekend was the opening of the BLK DNM Store in Stockholm.

Henrika is studying to become an optometrist at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland and works at Trend Optic where she also blogs about eyewear! She has a great eye for eyewear and is genuinely interested in optics. Here she is wearing MYKITA Debbie in Topaz.
She recently posted a picture of me.
I think I could spend a whole day in there.
The boutique Pour Vos Beaux Yeux on 10, rue Alexandre Mari in Nice, France carries eyewear from 1890 to 1900.
Elias, a friend of mine took this picture when he was in Nice, France. Check out his blog Fed Up. There he writes about amazing food from all over the world – and of course: Nice!
