Established in 2013, New Orleans’ own Krewe du Optic has quickly taken the eyewear fashion industry by storm. Young founder and creative artist, Stirling Barrett sketches all the designs by hand for his down to earth, low-key “You do you” vibe sunglasses. The collection is rich with the culture and spirit of the city featuring frames named after iconic streets and styles that embody the diverse essence of its people.
Krewe proudly uses the finest quality materials sourced from Italy and funky mirrored lens colors to help the wearer display their individuality without throwing a label in your face. Celebrities such as Selena Gomez (shown above), Beyoncé, Gigi Hadid, and Emma Watson have been spotted often wearing styles such as the St. Louis and Orleans. In the Spring of 2017, optical frames were introduced for prescription wearers to flaunt their NOLA style full time.
We quickly fell in love with the line’s distinctive design and offer them exclusively at our location on South Lamar. Stop by, have a glass of wine and stay for a custom frame fitting with one of our skilled opticians! You’ll have a hard time leaving without wearing one of these gems.
