Meet 661. Where Function meets Fashion. Where Art meets Eye.
Came across a funky little eyeglass shop In an equally funky little neighbourhood of Vancouver that is becoming affectionately known as Fraserhood. It borders on Fraser and Kingsway and is sandwiched in between a high end hidden gem of a French Restaurant Les Faux Bourgeois and a long standing for those in the know Japaribbean restaurant Lion’s Den not to mention cool coffee shops, a Mexican street food bistro among other interesting establishments. I’m telling you if you haven’t been you should check out the area. You might feel like you’re in Soho, New York. The shop, like the area itself is definitely not your run-of-the mill. The frames are strewn artistically on plain white shelving units not typical of your usual framing shop. More typical of an art gallery. In fact at one time it was.
The eye glasses and sunglasses are from Italy, France and Japan. Designed by Anne et Valentin from Paris, France.
Even if you don’t need to wear glasses you’ll definitely want a pair of these, if only to make a fashion statement. There’s a pair (or more) for every face shape in pretty much every style imaginable. I’ll be back!
On Saturday, November 8th between 1-5 pm Ann & Valentin will be in store with all the framing styles available.
