Just in time for the holidays and the end of the Flex spending year, we’re thrilled to announce an exclusive, day-long opportunity for Metro-Detroit to get an inside look at the latest Chrome Hearts eyeglasses and sunglasses.
We previewed these frames last month at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas and were extremely excited about the new designs. So excited, in fact, that knew we had to get these frames into the boutique and in-front of Metro-Detroit eyewear and fashion lovers in advance of the new models actually shipping early next year.
Even better, Spencer will be bringing selections from the Chrome Hearts “Jewel Collection” — which includes custom eyewear featuring precious metals like 24K gold, sterling silver and rubies, diamonds, black diamonds, and sapphires.
While we have carried a small number of these ultra-premium models in the past, December’s trunk show will be a rare opportunity to experience the larger Diamond Collection first hand. It will also provide a chance to do some early holiday shopping and light up the eyes of the eyewear lover in your life with a pair customized, jewelery-grade sunglasses or eyeglasses.
The Chrome Hearts Eyewear Trunk Show open house will run from 11 am to 3 pm and will be followed later that night by an invitation-only private cocktail reception and media preview.
If you pre-register for the open house, you’ll be entered to win a pair of Chrome Hearts “Baby Beast” sunglasses, as well as one of three Motor City Denim designer tees by Detroit fashion designer and Project Runway alum, Joe Faris. You can register here.
For details, or to request an invite to the private event, please contact us at 248.347-9090 or email us at email@example.com
Yes, people really do win those giveaway contests.
Just ask Jamie Henderson of Detroit, who scored herself a pair of super-lux Special Edition Badgley Mischka “Boyd” suns with 18K white gold lenses from Urban Optiques as part of September’s 944 Detroit Swag giveway.
Check out some pics we snapped of Jamie in her new shades. Love ’em on you Jamie! Congrats!
Just in time for the Fall eyewear buying season, we just received the first shipment of the latest and hottest Chrome Hearts eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Big, bold, retro-inspired acetate frames continue to be hot, hot, hot … and the first selections of the season that we received from luxury eyewear maker Chrome Hearts provide you with some amazing new eyewear options that just can’t be found anywhere else in Metro-Detroit.
We were so excited about these new 2010 Chrome Hearts models that we snapped a few pictures to get you as fired up about these designs as we are. We’ll be adding another 15-20 additional pieces over the next few weeks, so if you don’t see something in here yet that makes your heart skip a beat (which we think is unlikely) — keep checking back … you will.
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.

This weekend, The Expendables debuts at movie theaters in Europe (it opens in the U.S. next weekend) and we’re already fielding questions at Urban Optiques about who makes Mickey Rourke’s retro-inspired eyeglasses in the movie.
Anyone who came of age in the ’80s will know that Mickey Rourke was one of the decade’s sexiest bad boy actors. Who can forget the steamy 9 1/2 Weeks that paired Rourke with Kim Basinger and had to be substantially edited to earn a mere “R-Rating” at the box office? He had that whole quiet, tough guy swagger down pat and it more or less made Rourke an icon among both men and women.
But right at his height, Rourke seemed to disappear. He took up boxing again. He got his face bashed in which resulted in a round of reconstructive surgery that Rourke admits didn’t go the way he had expected. For nearly a decade, there was hardly a word about Mickey Rourke.
And then in then 2005, Mickey Rourke staged an unlikely comeback thanks to his role in Sin City. The credits continued to accumulate, including an Oscar nomination for Best Actor for his role in the 2008 film The Wrestler and his role as the villain “Whiplash” in this Spring’s blockbuster Iron Man 2.
