|You’ll love the selection of eyewear at this brand new eco-friendly eyewear store
Recently, everyone in Singapore has been talking about the new JEM mall, just opened at Jurong East. Living in the West, I have to say I’m a big fan. Gone are my days of needing to trek to Orchard Road to get a decent fashion fix. You can check out my full guide of the best stores to shop here on InSing.com.
One thing that stood out when I was walking around JEM writing that shopping feature was the great selection of accessory stores on offer – particularly eyewear. Amongst others, concept store T.O.T Eyewear, (standing for The Optique of Tomorrow) really blew me away with its well-designed industrial-feel interior and niche selection of eyewear brands, curated from more than 10 countries. It is also Singapore’s first eco-friendly eyewear store, using non-woven bags, using wood instead of laminate for the interior of their stores, as well as running a recycling program to collect old eyewear from the public!
Brand names include Tart Optical, Korean grafik:plastic, Carrera, WOOW, Italian brands February 31st & Retrosuperfuture (a personal favourite). Exclusive to T.O.T. and launched by the MD of Nanyang Optical, Mr. Bernard Yang, is Glossi, eyewear identifiable by its unique mirrored coating.
