If eyes are the windows to the soul, Ollie Quinn will make you take a second look. Ollie Quinn is a UK based eyewear retailer that is rapidly expanding throughout North America. A man about style draws many of its influence from British Fashion. Their roots may not be native to North America but all of their boutiques are infused with the local heritage. Their boutiques are designed by in-house architects that work with local furniture suppliers and craftspeople. This creates a welcoming home away from home atmosphere that reflects the community it serves.
How to Choose Quinn Frames:
Price will not be a major factor at Ollie Quinn since all of their frames are the same price (currently 125 USD). Prescription frames are available within 1-2 weeks instore or for delivery. They also offer 30-minute eye exams from an in-house optometrist. When styling frames, keep in mind face shape, skin tone, and personal style.
We decided to style the Clemes frames in the tortoiseshell color, dramatically named "Fireflies," since we needed a frame with rounded lenses to soften the sharp angles of our square face. The color and style are a nod to classic 50's style. In addition, Fireflies is a versatile color for all occasions that can be paired with both vibrant or muted outfits--as you can see, we chose to pair it with a vibrant green Indochino suit.
What sets Ollie Quinn apart is their attention to both detail and design. Honoring the unique history and flavor of the various neighborhoods in which their boutiques are located along with their modern approach to classic frame design, Ollie Quinn exquisitely balance both sophistication and expression. Make sure to visit one of their many boutiques in the UK or Canada. So far, Ollie Quinn is exclusively located in Seattle but further expansion into the US is in the works.
