March Madness is here! We are hosting 4 TRUNK SHOW EVENTS this month to celebrate the global eyecare community's return to NYC. Vision Expo, one of the premier conferences for eyewear, education, and innovation will take place at the Javits Center for the first time since 2019.
4 exceptional designers will be presenting their NEW COLLECTIONS at Studio Optix before Vision Expo weekend, by appointment only:
Monday March 28 - Masahiro Maruyama
Masahiro’s asymmetric frames are “unfinished”, creating evocative, eccentric designs. We will have the entire collection including NEW, unannounced releases! Masahiro Maruyama's creations are like owning a piece of art. 10am-6pm.
Tuesday March 29 - Francis Klein
One of our favorite days of the year! Betty and Dixie Klein will spend the day at Studio Optix to help style (and often customize) their exquisite frames, typically adorned with stones. 10am-6pm.
Wednesday March 30 - Lucas de Staël
Lucas de Staël is true artisan. His eyewear blends generations of traditional Parisian crafting with unexpected materials: wood, leather, stone, exotic skins, and even egg shells! Thirty steps are required to produce one frame, and his workshop can produce only three frames in one working day. Lucas will be at Studio Optix 1-6pm.
Thursday March 31 - Sabine Be
Sabine Be designs bold, colorful, unapologetically joyful eyewear for men, women, and children. Travel permitting, Sabine herself will join us for a cocktail gathering late afternoon! 10am-6pm.
All visits for exams and eyewear fittings are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Call us 212-765-4444 to schedule your visit.
