Bespectacled fashionistas, here’s where to get stylish eyewear.
Looking for Harry Potter inspired glasses? On the hunt for those barely-there metal frames? You’re in luck because we’ve sussed out the most on-trend boutiques for all your eyewear needs. Glasses have been reinvented as another way to make a fashion statement and we’re all for this bookish aesthetic.
This luxe eyewear brand counts Anne Hathaway, Hailey Baldwin and Davika Hoorne as its ambassadors, and that pretty much says it all. From aviators to browline styles, don one of Bolon’s frames to take your look to a whole new level of class and nerdy sophistication.
Bolon, 435 Orchard Road, #03-11 Wisma Atria, Singapore 238877
Worn by the likes of Angelababy and Park Shin Hye, Molsion is coming in hot (the brand has just recently set up shop in Singapore). Style a throwback look with metal rimmed frames that make a vinyl record store feel like an everyday hangout spot.
Molsion, 68 Orchard Rd, #02-31 Plaza Singapura, Singapore 238839
O+ stocks frames that are positively dripping in retro geek chic. This store does not manufacture lenses, so you’ll have to fit them with lenses from your trusted optician. Sure, it takes an extra step, but if there’s a pair of frames that you can’t find anywhere else, we definitely recommend browsing through this brand’s extensive collection!
O+, OUE Downtown Gallery, 6A Shenton Way, #01-07, Singapore 068815
Spectacle Hut always has us spoilt for choice. This boutique carries frames from the likes of Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, and Tiffany & Co. and more. Opt for a half-rimmed update to metal frames if you’re a fan of minimalist chic. Or go a little wild with a Tiffany blue spin on the classic tortoiseshell (by Tiffany & Co., of course)– who knew that would be such a fetching colour combo?
Spectacle Hut, multiple locations including Takashimaya and Bugis Junction
This Italian brand is best known for their painfully trendy acetate sunglasses, but the compact optical collection ticks all the boxes for fashion-forward eyewear too. Metal framed aviators, round tortoiseshell frames, black angular wayfarers… all the essential designs favoured by your favourite fashionistas.
