Stylish Specs

August 15, 2016

As any visually-challenged fashionista will tell you, fabulous face furny is of the utmost importance. Thankfully, devastatingly chic Tokyo-born eyewear brand Owndays is set to change Manila’s spec scene with the launch of its first Filipino boutique in Estancia Mall, plus other mall branches to follow.

All Owndays sunnies and specs are own-label brands, designed and manufactured in-house, in a variety of shapes with materials ranging from resin to titanium. Frames come in more than 1,500 styles, spanning basic, functional options, more cutting-edge models (are you Graph Belle or Butterfly Effect?) and, of course, the requisite creative collaborations.

Your prescription pair can be carved out and fitted to your face in just 20 minutes, with simple all-in-one pricing and no extra fee for ultra-thin, high-quality lenses. Crafted in Japan, lenses come with UV protection, scratch-resistance and anti-reflection coating, with choices such as PC to reduce harmful blue light from gadgets. Staff combine the skills of eyewear pros and fashion stylists to help you get the best match.

The boutique looks good too, a sleek wood-and-white affair, with smart task lights, generous mirrors and videos to check out styles. Peepers peeled!
