Eye on new wave of optical stores

Hello Glasses, Kyiv (Kiev)

25th July 2013 It is super to see  some new, go-ahead stores emerging right around the world, and with that thought, Eyestylist is pleased to introduce Hello Glasses in Ukraine.

Kyiv (Kiev) is a historic city with many special places to visit. Among them are the city beaches along the impressive Dnieper river, where temperatures can soar….stylish sunnies selected by Hello Glasses are therefore likely to be much sought after, but so too are their curated collections of fashion specs which the owners have selected carefully. They include Mykita, Vidal Erkohen’s RVS by V., Ksubi, Black Eyewear and a range of interesting vintage frames (Ray-Ban, l.a. eyeworks and very nice Anglo American examples), as well as famous mainstream lines such as Retrosuperfuture, Prada and Persol.

Set up in 2008, first with a vintage blog, and then a showroom, the Hello Glasses team opened to the public in June with its first specs store in an interesting location in the Vozdvizhenka district, a newly renovated historic part of Kyiv. The opening included an informal presentation by Mykita designer, Martin Guentert.

Eyestylist asked Sasha Anisin about the store concept: “We are a two person team – myself and Daria Bespalova. We want to give the city of Kyiv an opportunity to purchase high quality optics with a good, well thought-out concept. We are fully involved in the development of the business and the visual content, design, site development and store furniture which have all been created by us.”
