S elima Optique x LOOK Optic Collaboration Launch Party



Last night we officially welcomed LOOK Optic’s most fashionable new reader the LIAM with open arms, champagne, spin the wheel giveaway, canvas gift bags, and photo booth.

A cute little friendship story we would like to share with you:


Once upon a time, Andrew Leary, the founder of LOOK Optic, who was then based in Los Angeles, bought a few pairs of Selima Optique frames. His favorite pair was the Money!


A few years later, Andrew started a company focused on fashionable readers at great prices. He then asked Selima, over a few drinks, if he could create a frame inspired by his original Money and she said yes!


Mesdames et Messieurs, please meet LIAM, a Reader available for sun and screen (with blue-light blocker for those devices we’re always looking at) that comes in two vibrant shades of Sky Blue and Bottle Green.

S potlight on Bond 07 by Selima



We couldn’t be more flattered by this lovely feature by Joanna Maziarz of the NoHo BID on our Bond 07 Boutique

“Bond 07 by Selima, located at 7 Bond Street is truly a work of art; displaying professional photography and designer pieces throughout the store with red velvet accents to tie it all together. It is no surprise that this location is Selima’s favorite; the experience of visiting Bond 07 by Selima is an adventure into New York City high fashion and glam.” 

- Joanna Maziarz

E riN Design Holiday Pop Up Residency at Selima Optique



          December 1st we kicked off the holiday season with internationally recognized Japanese floral designer Eriko Nagata


         Last year we hosted a Pop Up with EriN Design at our Soho Store. It was such a hit that we decided to do a month long pop up, with Eriko making weekend appearances with her unique, enchanting floral designs at each of our NYC Selima Optique boutiques. 


This year Eriko kicked off her holiday residency at our new Gramercy boutique, Selima Optique Reading Room, then on to Madison avenue, Soho, West Village and finally Bon 07.  Her deep love of nature and fashion inspire her one of a kind floral structures giving her handmade wreaths, garlands, ornaments, and floral frames a modern artistic elegance which was just perfect for the season.

I ntroducing Selima Optique Gramercy



      We couldn’t have been more excited to celebrate the opening of our newest New York boutique.


      This past Thursday, we popped some bottles to celebrate the opening of  Selima Optique Gramercy, an adorable, carefully curated boutique focusing primarily on our namesake eyewear collection with select vintage frames and specialty gift items such as cards and notebooks. Sharing a block with Bar Jamón, Casa Mono, Takamichi Beauty Room and the famously unmarked Inn At Irving Place, we instantly felt right at home this a very special New York neighborhood.


     Selima Optique Gramercy is located in Manhattan’s historic Gramercy neighborhood on 17th st. and Irving Place, named after Washington Irving, author of such works as, to name a few, Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle. The neighborhood is home to the infamous Gramercy Park, one of two private parks located in NYC. Members of a few exclusive clubs, religious establishments, guests of the Gramercy Park Hotel, and local residents who wish to pay the annual assessment fee are the only key holders to the park.  If you’re wandering around the area and looking to get a bite to eat or something to drink there are a few great places nearby. The Michelin Star sister restaurants Casa Mono and Bar Jamon are located just next door to the shop offering restaurant fare, wine, and tapas. If you’re more on the market for fancy libations swing by The Inn at Irving Place just around the corner, home to Cibar and Lady Mendi’s Tea Salon. Cibar, located in the basement of the Inn, is the place to go for cocktails and snacks but if you’ve got a little more time to kill, and looking for something a little less boozy, check out Lady Mendi’s 5-course tea service.

Selima Optique Gramercy:
 125 East 17th st. New York, NY 10003

Stop in and say hello!
