Summer is just around the corner, and that means it's time to break out the sunnies!
Looking to swap out your old pair of no-name sunglasses for this year's hottest trends? Australian eyewear brand Bailey Nelson is opening a brand new shop in the Eaton Centre and it's got everything you need: from classic 90s ovals to oversized cat eyes.
Known for its affordable line of fashionable frames, and hailing from Bondi Beach, Australia, Bailey Nelson carries hundreds of optical and sunglass styles and offers on-site services like professional eye exams and eye-health checkups with their staff of friendly optometrists. Beautiful handcrafted glasses and sunglasses are available at flat rates starting at $145 for frames AND lenses, with extras like polarisation, anti-glare and scratch resistant coatings coming in at no additional cost. Now that's definitely eye care the way it should be.
Which, BTW, is probably the deal of the century. Bailey Nelson glasses are notorious for being just as good quality - or better! - than their designer counterparts. Considering those cost upwards of $500, you can cop a high-quality and gorgeous pair of Bailey Nelson spec for a fraction of the cost.
Not sure what style you're looking for? The store's knowledgeable staff are up-to-date with all the latest trends and act as personal stylists to help you find the best pair of high-quality glasses that fit your face - and style - perfectly.
The company is vertically integrated, which means its frames are designed in Australia, sustainable acetate materials sourced from Italy and hand-assembled in their factories overseas. According to Bailey Nelson's website, its factories and artisans in China and Thailand are “just as professional and actually more efficient than their European counterparts.”
The store's grand opening is happening on Thursday, March 28, at Unit 2104-218 Yonge Street in the Eaton Centre. This will be Bailey Nelson's second shop in Toronto, after its Queen Street location.
Opening hours are:
Monday - Friday: 10:00 AM - 9:30 PM
Saturday: 9:30 AM - 9:30 PM
Sunday: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
