After a Long Wait, the Maria Sherapova Sunglasses from Tag Heuer Have Arrived!

In April we teased all of you with a promise that the “Maria Sherapova” Sunglasses from Tag Heuer were about to arrive at Urban Optiques.

Okay, it took a little longer than expected, but we just received the first Maria Sherapova signature sunglass in from Tag Heuer and it’s amazing:

Urban Optiques Vision & Eyewear Featured in This Week’s Northville Record “Strictly Business” Section

Just in time for the Fall eyewear season, we picked up a 3/4 page Q&A in the Northville Record!

Not only were we thrilled with the coverage, but we are also extremely pleased with how well it represents who we are, what we do and what we believe sets us apart from nearly every other Metro-Detroit eyewear boutique and optometrist.

Megan Fox’s Eyeglasses Cause Major Case of Eyewear Envy. The Good News? You Can Get Her Lafont Karima Frames at Urban Optiques.

Actress Megan Fox is the perfect example in our minds of why people need to think of eyeglasses as an accessory, and not justMegan Fox Eyeglasses: Megan Fox in Lafont Karima Eyeglasses a medical necessity.

Take the eyeglasses that Fox was spotted in last year: As soon as the photos of Megan in her fab eyeglasses hit the Internet, there was a flurry of searches around what frames she was wearing.

How do we know?

Well, we watch stuff like this.  It’s part of how we track trends in not just eyewear, but also fashion and accessories. This helps us better predict what to carry in the store, as well as recommend to people what’s going to be stylish this season.

In the case of Fox, it didn’t take much more than a quick look to know right away that she was wearing Lafont eyeglasses, one of our flagship brands here at Urban Optiques.

Based in Paris, Lafont is known for its distinctive eyewear designs, which range from artsy and funky, to chic and sophisticated. continue

We Got A Glimpse of the New John Galliano and Tod’s Line of Sunglasses and You Are Going to LOVE Them!

This week  Marcolin, the U.S. distributor of Tom Ford, Tod’s and DSquared2, stopped in to show us the new sunglass John Galliano Beau Regard Sunglasseslines from John Galliano and Tod’s.

At first we were a little skeptical.

We’ve been searching for some new eyewear lines to add at Urban Optiques for several months now, and what we’ve seen so far (outside of Francis Klein) hasn’t particularly impressed us.

We pretty much knew what we didn’t want:  Yet another line of sunglasses from some giant corporate design center with yet another fashion designer’s name stuck on the temple with something akin to Super Glue as an afterthought.

There are tons of those brands out there, and outside of the designer logo itself, there’s really not much in terms of unique design to differentiate these eyewear lines from each other.

Spring Has Arrived and So Have the New Chloé Sunglasses and Eyeglasses at Urban Optiques!

When we think of Chloé, we think gorgeous French ready-to-wear fashion, handbags — and yes — beautiful eyewear.Chloe-Spring-Ad-2

Just in time for the Spring and Summer sun, we’ve received more than 20 new eyewear pieces from the Chloé 2010 Eyewear Collection, ranging from subtle and sophisticated, to bold, funky and avant garde.

Urban Optiques was the first eyewear boutique to carry Chloé in Southeast Michigan and we’ve moved so many Chloé frames in the past six months, that we decided to bring more, fresh stock in.

This is truly gorgeous eyewear that you’ll want to stop in to try on — especially the new narrower eyeglass frames that work on more petite faces and Chloé’s stunning line of sunglasses that will help you see and be seen … as well as protect your eyes from UV  rays this summer.
