Fans of this French eyewear label can now shop for sleek frames at the brand’s first U.S. store. The 600-square-foot space is reminiscent of the original Paris location, housing the collection ($339–$619) on resin tables and atop handmade maple cabinets. Shop mod designs influenced by the ’50s and ’60s, including tortoiseshell cat-eye styles ($335) and oversize shades ($476) inspired by Andy Warhol. Round boho-chic specs ($459) give a nod to Janis Joplin, while unisex aviators ($413) are revamped with thick frames. Let the staff of opticians outfit you in your favorite look, then have the on-site lab and workshop custom-fit the frames ($175–$750) with the prescription that you bring to the store.
