I am very sure you all know the best source of unworn vintage and new glasses and sunglasses, Lunettes Selection on Torstraße. But did you know they had a second store just off Helmholtzplatz with an even bigger choice of sunglasses and – as a real speciality – kid’s prescription glasses? And they’re soo cute, like this one tiny round glasses model in red with white dots… So if you don’t find the model of your dreams on Torstraße, get to the Prenzlauer Berg location (where you can also pick up all glasses from their online store).
The store obviously bears resemblance to the one on Torstraße with its vintage furniture with thousands of drawers filled with glasses, though its color scheme is darker with grey walls and grey displays.
But it’s not only the pretty interior nor the seriously huge choice of glasses that makes Lunettes Selection one of the most recommendable source for glasses in Berlin. It’s actually the outstanding service with knowledgable sales staff being ready for any quarrels you might have.
Like those people entering the store convinced there’s absolutely no model of glasses that will fit and suit their face. All of Lunettes Selection’s staff is convinced there’s a frame for everyone, although it might not be the Mickey-Mouse-model with the foldable tinted glasses pictured above. And they won’t stop until you found them. (On the way will tell you if one thing really doesn’t suit you – like this very round model with a thin golden frame I’d love to wear, but seriously, no way.) With patience and honest judgment most customers can be helped in their struggle to find the “one”, although you might not believe it first.
And for all the others actually enjoying buying glasses, this store might feel like one big playground.
