Well, this weather does not exactly qualify as summer but the sun is out (kind of) and will be here for a while (hopefully). In case you need a pair of new glamorous shades, check out Eye Connection, a recently opened store in Nişantaşı where you can find fashionable designer sunglasses at a very reasonable price.
Their whole collection is made with 100% UV protected Carl Zeiss lenses and colored frames by 150 year-old Italian acetate company Mazzuchelli. We love the fact that the models get their names from notorious movie personalities such as Woody (Allen), Leon (Jean Reno) or Richie T. (The Royal Tenenbaums). If Nişantaşı is out of your way, you can also find Eye Connection’s collection at Galata’s Lunapark and at Karaköy’s Bey. Too lazy to go to any store? Fine. Go to their website. Not the e-shopper type? You still might want to check it out: Eye Connection offers a cool Virtual Try-On feature that allows you to try your glasses online.
