Planet Botkier January 24, 2011

With spring also comes a swift change in trends- we’ll be seeing bold colors, rich prints, and of course, plenty of charm… When styling your everyday outfits or dressing up for a night out on the town, one thing is for certain, you can never go wrong with a great accessory, and nothing is as simple or chic as finding the perfect pair of glasses to go with your different looks and whims! For this very reason, we’re delighted to share with you one of our favorite spots in NoLita, Selima Optique.

Located at 25 Prince Street between Elizabeth and Mott this little hotspot created by Selima Salaun, the trend-setting designer who happens to be a professional optician and optometrist, is a favorite amongst the stylish set in film, fashion, and music. Most of all, we love that every aspect of every frame is handmade in a small factory outside of Paris, which ensures you’ll have your pair for years to come. Whether it’s finding a large bohemian frame a la Rachel Zoe or a vintage inspired frame a la Annie Hall… Selima will fulfill your every optical need! From Selima’s Spring ’11 collection we love the idea of pairing their Love glasses with our Helena Crossbody in ivory or black lambskin, or their Steve frames with our Isla Satchel in tarnished gold… The choices are endless!
