Bijoux store for glasses and accessories, in the heart of the city
With its vintage furniture, eclectic collections and colorful hats and bags decorating the walls makes Angles de Vue a special eye-catching destination. Set up by the young optician Olivier Novás in 2018, who completed his studies in Geneva in 2003, and then worked in a luxury opticians, the store has come to specialise in a personal and bespoke service for its neighbourhood whilst supporting local creators in Geneva, with space for fair trade design. Many of the accessory products are handcrafted and unique with simple silhouettes and lots of style, transcending time and trends, and created by local artists or artisans.
The boutique is located in the alternative neighborhood of Les Grottes in the centre of Geneva, next to the main station. The area is often described as colorful and bohemian, and features narrow streets, leafy squares and some small and creative artist’s studios, cafes, and second hand bookstores – as well as a popular local market. “My customers are local,” says Novás “but I also welcome many travellers from further afield who’ve heard about my personalized service and store. My regular customers recommend my work by word of mouth.”
