Three tips on buying glasses:
1. Don’t buy Luxottica brands.
Avoid Luxottica brands, including Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace (not that you would), and Chanel. This huge conglomerate make their premium product the same way they produce their cheap brands like Versus and Vogue. Same acetate, same lenses, same old shit.
2. Buy from small, boutique labels.
Avoiding the big boys and chosing smaller, handmade brands means you’ll have something orginial as well as a quality product. My favourite brand is Cutler and Gross (see above).
3. Paris is the best place to buy.
They have to best optometrists and most selection of interesting brands and styles.
