With a name like Optiking, you would expect nothing less than an eyewear collection fit for royalty – and that’s exactly what you find. This huge collection starts in the 1940s and sports a vast selection of glasses and sunglasses frames, from designer labels such as Christian Dior (€99-250), Valentino (€60-150) and Nina Ricci (€70-170), to sport labels such as Carrera (€70-230), Ferrari (€150-250) and traditional German label Menrad (€100-150). Go expecting to find everyday frames and leave a changed person, thanks to Optiking’s treasure trove of rarities, like some bitchin’ cat-eye frames and a few 1800s gems. Not your average eyewear... thank god. Long live Optiking!
