‘Eye wear is an art-form’ is not a phrase you hear a lot these days, with mass produced plastic frames taking up a large portion of the market. But recently opened boutique One Point Seven Four - next to Aesop in Greville Street - is dedicated to this idea. Named about the highest index for an optical lense, One Point Seven Four is providing the largest collection of cult London designer Linda Farrow in Australia (Yoko Ono is a fan), as well as sunglasses and spectacles by 3.1 Phillip Lim, Barton Perreira, Cutler and Gross and Victoria Beckham Eyewear, the boutique is catering to lovers of luxury and exclusivity. Farrow’s recent collaboration with Alexander Wang is also on sale, as is her work with Charles Anastase and Olsen twin’s label The Row. These frames are made with unusual materials such as titanium, bamboo, hand polished acetate, buffalo horn and 24 carat gold. These sunnies come in limited numbers, so make sure you’re not squinting this summer and get down to check out this new spec store.
