5 THINGS I LEARNED AT GEORGES LAOUN OPTICIEN, AS A STYLIST

5 THINGS I LEARNED AT GEORGES LAOUN OPTICIEN, AS A STYLIST

Own your individuality with pride

Glasses are not just an accessory: they're a continuation of who you are, and they adorn your face all day long.

That's why it is so important to choose a frame that reflects your personality and is representative of you, as a whole.

So don't limit yourself to other people's ideas of you and your style. Instead, embrace your individuality. By doing so, you'll feel less restricted by the so-called unwritten norms of fashion and style.

Be who you want to be, be bold!

Don't be afraid to dare

When you come to Georges Laoun Opticien and are surrounded by such unique and creative frames, it's normal to feel intimidated at times.

Indeed, the unique selection of frames pushes some people out of their comfort zone, which can be slightly destabilizing. However, by putting them on our face, many of them will look more subdued, since their thoughtful design allows them to become part of the face, despite the intimidating first impression made by their avant-garde appearance.

A word of advice? Try the frames, even if they're not the ones you imagine yourself in! You'll either be pleasantly surprised or have a good laugh!

Create your own trends

Trends are ephemeral. They often influence us to follow the latest fashion, without necessarily being in harmony with our personality, style, and character.

That's why it's important to favour unique and timeless designs that will stand the test of time, while highlighting our individuality, no matter what the latest trend is.

Choose quality over quantity

The combination of a fast-paced lifestyle and fast fashion pushes us to favour quantity over quality.

The same idea applies when shopping for glasses: we always want more. However, it is more advantageous to invest in one or more unique, versatile, handmade frames that last for many years, rather than buying twice that amount several times a year.

In addition, investing in a pair of quality eyeglasses is an environmentally-friendly choice.  

Independently designed eyewear is an art form in its own right

It wasn't until I walked into Georges Laoun Opticien that I really understood that the spectrum of eyewear is much broader than what we are used to seeing.
Independent frame designers don't follow any rules. Their creations require many hours of conceptualization and design, much like works of fine art.
The craftsmanship behind each frame is comparable to the artistic process of an artist.
At Georges Laoun Opticien, the possibilities are endless and you're sure to uncover the treasure that your face was missing!
