Affordable designer sunglasses in New York City – check out Privé Revaux
At the end of last year, a friend showed me her new sunglasses and she was so excited about it. And they were gorgeous! That’s how I ended up discovering Privé Revaux and the modern sunglasses. The brand opened a pop-up store in New York late last year – which ended up closing before I had time to check it out. I had to be happy enough with the website – until, unpretentiously walking the area, I discovered that the brand opened a new location in the city – and this time it was permanently. I did not waste the opportunity: I went in, tried several sunglasses and now I come to leave the tip, because, after all, who does not like affordable sunglasses?
Privé Revaux was built on a shared passion for style and quality with the goal of making it accessible in ways never seen until now. Serial entrepreneur David Schottenstein took aim at disrupting the eyewear market, and he enlisted an elite team around him to ensure the brand’s success. With the help of celebrity visionaries Jamie Foxx, Hailee Steinfeld, Ashley Benson, as well as VP of Celebrity Relations Dave Osokow and Creative Directors Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, they’ve done just that. Rob and Mariel bring unmatched celebrity styling expertise (Jennifer Lopez, Emily Ratajkowski, Cara Delevingne, Gwen Stefani) along with design prowess working with world renowned luxury brands to assure Privé Revaux’s premium quality. With over 100 handcrafted and polarized designer frames, each costing $29.95, Privé Revaux Eyewear is a purveyor of quality goods at a great value. Each of the 100+ Privé styles is named to evoke a persona, from The Artist and The Socialite, to The Boss and The Godfather, all to show that everyone can be anyone when you reframe yourself with Privé Revaux.
Personally, I found the history and concept of the brand very cool, to democratize access to quality sunglasses with great designs for a super good price. “Okay, Laura, but how much is it?” Each pair is $29.95! That’s right. The polarized lenses have UVA / UVB protection, are scratch-proof and the frames are made of 100% stainless steel.
Here in the United States, the brand is making a lot of success. Several Hollywood celebrities are wearing the sunglasses, such as Ashley Greene, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Justice and so on. In addition, it is worth remembering that Privé’s sunglasses are unisex, for men and women.
You can buy it throght Privé’s website, Amazon, and as I mentioned at the beginning of the post, the brand has a flagship store here in New York, right near Times Square. I took the opportunity and also bought a glasses for myself and they come in a great box. So far, I’m in love! For those who are looking for cool glasses – not a specific design for a particular brand – I suggest checking it out!
