Teddy Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, and Charles Lindberg are among the noteworthy clients that E. B. Meyorwitz & Dell has been crafting “made-to-measure” frames for since 1875. Today, be it in their New York, London or Paris shops, one can still be fitted for a pair of the same classy, high quality spectacles.
A popular place with celebs, Selima Salaun has been able to "combine her professional expertise as an optician and optometrist with modern, innovative design to create a uniquely glamorous retail niche. " The store is filled with both classic and stylish eyeglass frames. In addition, the boutique carries vintage clothing and fashion accessories primarily from Hermes and Chanel. We recommend also taking a look at the handmade leather bags by Marla Cielo.
Maxim Eyes is friendly and inviting simply from the sidewalk. Big wooden block letters spelling out “Maxim Eyes” lay in several beds of faux grass, surrounded by birdcages with fake birds wearing glasses and mannequin heads sporting the funkiest of frames. The sunny, playful disposition of the window display lured me into the small store that houses hundreds of frames. Inside, the people working there were as warm and welcoming as their storefront.
Anthony Aider has been fitting people with trendy eyewear since 1989. We stopped in the store to take a look at their selection of glasses and were impressed by the beautiful array that they carry. More importantly, however, is that they have a lovely group of people working here -- friendly, helpful and dedicated to dressing your eyes in the perfect pair of specs.
