This German eyewear label opens its first U.S. location for handmade-in-Berlin unisex frames ($400–$2,000). Housed in an Art Deco–style factory building, the store maintains an industrial look with modern steel encasements and glasses perched on individual backlit shelves. Try on double-bridge sunnies ($452), tortoiseshell glasses with screwless hinges ($504) and lightweight, snap-proof specs ($649). Prescription lenses aren’t included in the frame price, but an in-house optician ($50–$85 per visit) can help you determine exactly what you need.
