On Tuesday, September 20th, luxury eyewear retailer Designer Eyes, celebrated the opening of its NYC Flagship location inside the new World Trade Center Mall (also known as “The Oculus”). After the ribbon cutting, guests of the launch party were treated to cocktails and light bites, while the DJ spun for notable guests like Michael Strahan and Olivia Caridi.

The flagship offers personal eyewear stylists by appointment, concierge services for any off-site eyewear emergencies, and complimentary espresso or champagne to sip & shop.

Shoppers also have the chance to scoop up limited Gifts With Purchase, including a two-frame textured leather case by Oliver Peoples, business card holder by Mont Blanc, and a Black Orchid fragrance set by Tom Ford.
