One Point Seven Four
"Eyewear is an art-form" is not a phrase you hear a lot these days as mass-produced plastic frames take up a large portion of the market. Eyewear boutique OnePointSevenFour – next to Aesop in Greville Street – is dedicated to the phrase, the idea and changing public opinion.
Named after the highest index for an optical lens (the thinnest that it can be made), One Point Seven Four, stocks the largest collection of eyewear by cult London designer Linda Farrow in Australia. Catering to lovers of luxury and exclusivity, the boutique offers a range sunglasses and specs from high end labels like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Barton Perreira, Cutler and Gross, Gotti, Victoria Beckham Eyewear, Alexander Wang, Marni, Dries van Noten, The Row, and Matthew Williamson.
OnePointSevenFour’s frames are redefining the way we look at eyewear by using materials, such as titanium, bamboo, hand polished acetate, buffalo horn and 24 carat gold. These sunnies and glasses come in limited numbers, so make sure you’re not squinting this summer and get down to check out this high-end spectacle store.
