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!

The lovely Caroline Abram that makes the beautiful eyewear accessories we’ve posted about a few times about also makes fantastic glasses.

Blue Lenses

There is something about blue lenses, and some have even made it their hallmark. Colored or tinted lenses definitely make your glasses unique!
