Optica do Sacramento, Lisbon, Portugal

Eyewear style in the heart of the Portuguese capital

27th July 2011 We have recently come across Óptica do Sacramento, one of the few eyewear boutiques in Portugal to be working with luxury eyewear brands. Opened in 2009, this store is located in the heart of Lisbon, in the fashionable shopping area of Chiado. The store is found in a traditional Portuguese building with high ceilings and huge windows; a refined Marie Antoinette inspired interior features ornate lighting, Venetian mirrors, and a number of interesting vintage curiosities including a classic typewriter.

“The philosophy of this store is to have a wide selection of classic looks that never go out of style,” explains Rui Romão, sales manager, Optica do Sacramento. “We have become well known also for our different, avant-garde, vintage and retro style collections, which include Moscot, Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith, Garrett Leight, Jacques Durand, Paul Frank, Cutler & Gross, Framers, KBL, Jil Sander, and Cheap Monday. We also provide  a selection of vintage frames.” One to visit should you be visiting the Portuguese capital.
