London boasts many fine independent optical and sunglasses retailers, but they’ve hitherto been restricted to the western sides of London. In recent times, a much more interesting small shop has emerged on Shoreditch’s famous Redchurch Street: Catch and Release.

Expect a lovely mix of vintage glasses and sunglasses; but actual vintage, rather than what is increasingly passed off in this category of new products that have been given an old-ish look. This is the real deal. There are old Carreras and Christian Dior frames that have been carefully restored.

The staff and owners are helpful without being pushy, happy to let people try on different styles and guiding helpfully.
