Big up for Garrett Leights color experiments. LOVE it! Never seen this extravagant fading before. All customized, available on request.
I could buy plenty of the Hampton model in all different combinations: as sun, as optical, in different sizes, in matt colors, shiny colors, crazy colors… So many great combinations!
What is old is new. There are several glasses in a 1920’s or 1930’s type of style. They are so beautiful and classic. Traditionally made metal frames in a slightly droopy round shape, delicate details in the metal and tortoise colored rims.
What a classic combo: Yellowish acetate frame with bottle green lenses!
Here are my favorites:

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.
When in Bologna, Italy do not miss one of the best optician’s I’ve been to:
Ottica Giulietti e Guerra
Via Clavature, 24

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!
A great of knowing Spring finally arrived is to eat lunch on the stairs of The Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. Niklas is enjoying his lunch in his Garret Leight Hampton.
I just noticed this.
