Wendy Salle of Salle Opticians doesn’t carry basic eyewear. Ray-Ban, Prada, Persol? Those are all mass-manufactured by corporate giant Luxottica. At Salle you’ll find lesser-known, independent luxury labels that produce glasses by hand and use exquisite materials like horn, sterling silver, and fine acrylic. (She’s also launching an exclusive collaboration with Cartier.) In August, for the store’s 30th anniversary, Salle is moving to an updated space in Phipps Plaza. Pictured above are three of the optician’s fave frames.
