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).
You already know that Lunettes Selection is one of our favorite places when it comes to shopping for new (sun)glasses. Yet for those of us blessed with imperfect eyesight, the process was always a little elaborate; while you could shop for your frames on Torstraße, you had to get your glasses cut somewhere else. Those days of inconvenience are now over, as the Lunettes shop now also employs opticians to test and measure your eyesight. Just like their carefully curated selection of frames, though, this process is a little bit more tailored and personal than anywhere else.
Although we’re currently living under ice in Berlin with temperatures around zero degrees, this city is blessed with nonstop sunshine and blue sky, rising my anticipation for higher temperatures, blossoming trees and that particular spring scent. In case you don’t yet have the perfect sunglasses for this frenetic, bright sunshine, I strongly suggest to visit Lunettes Selection.
