When I visited London a couple of weeks ago I found a very nice sunglass’ spot at Liberty’s. Here you find a very fine selection of eyewear brands from all over the world, and not just the regular Luxotica-brands.
Some favorite Bonocle pieces:
ACNE. We’ve been writing about this model before, but not this color. Isn’t it amazing? Very fine matte surface and perfect combination of colours.
Thierry Lasry. As always, glossy acetate in lovely colours. Love the oversized round shape of the brown frame, feminine retro. And the red one… do I even need to explain? It’s the PERFECT nuance of red (and as some of you might know by now, I simply love red).
The Row. This is Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen’s own accessory brand. Established 2006 and loved by the fashion scene world wide. Playful and fashionable eyewear pieces of good quality.
The Oliver Goldsmith Store in London on 15 All Saints Road has a new wallpaper.
Look who’s up in the corner!
Oliver Goldsmith designed the crazy Uuksuu sunglass in 1964 and now Claire Goldsmith, his great granddaughter remakes the cool sunglass frame. The acetate shape is slightly rounded butterfly but the lens in squareish.
My dear friend Frida works at Oliver Goldsmith in London. This summer we both ordered the same sunglass – without even knowing it! Frida has the Mint Choc Chip and I have the Tortoise Split. Great minds think alike.
This is a new frame from Claire Goldsmith, which is perfect for you guys with tiny heads – it’s a “big” model, for small heads!

I love the texture of Claire Goldsmith’s frames, you can really feel the quality of the acetate by holding them in your hands. Quality is always difficult to judge only by a picture, specially when it comes to acetate.
Despite that, I hope you can at least imagine the lustre of the texture by the photos above.
