For Art’s Sake
MONDAY – SATURDAY: 10 AM – 9 PM
SUNDAY: 12PM – 9 PM
Founded in 2016, For Art’s Sake has made a name for itself as one of the biggest and most exciting eyewear brands to come out of London. Loved for its bold details and a light-hearted approach to luxury, FAS lives by the phrase ‘Designed to Delight’ – seen in everything from their sunglasses to their striking art deco-inspired stores to their blue velvet packaging and the charities they support (with every purchase you make, FAS donates a pair of glasses to someone in need through Restoring Vision and plants a tree with Trees for the Future).
The cult eyewear brand has attracted a legion of celebrity followers (Beyonce J Lo, Chrissy Teigen and Rita Ora are all fans) and come fashion week, you’ll spot their shades on the world’s most stylish. Their first standalone store opened its doors at the beginning of 2019 and can be found in the heart of Covent Garden’s Piazza. Borrowing bold details from the brand’s penchant for eclectic style, the space is fit for a Wes Anderson dream: think decadent blue velvet furnishings and brass fixtures that beautifully elevate the statement-making frames.
The brand can also be found in over 700 exclusive stockists around the world, including Harvey Nichols, Saks 5th Avenue, Net-A-Porter, and Neiman Marcus, as well as another standalone store in Shanghai.
