Modo, a company that designs and manufactures optical frames for high end designers like Derek Lam and Jason Wu is currently having a winter sample sale. Inside Modo’s SoHo showroom you will find a wide selection of sunglasses and eyeglasses for only $20 each. You might recall how quickly sunglasses sold out at the last Derek Lam sample sale and they weren’t priced that cheap either. Not only does this sale offer a much larger selection but the prices! Yes I must mention them again 🙂
I stopped by yesterday afternoon to find a large variety of merchandise from Modo’s own label, as well as the environmentally friendly Eco that’s manufactured from recyclable materials and of course Jason Wu, Derek Lam, and Seven For All Mankind. Glasses are separated by designers and spread out neatly on the large tables furnishing the room. As you enter and to the left is a table with Derek Lam sunglasses and optical frames. Jason Wu frames can be found on a table to the right, by the window. Seven For All Mankind had the smallest selection and could be found on a table in the back right corner. The huge table in the middle held everything from Modo and Eco. There were lightweight titanium frames, lots of colorful designs, square frames, round frames, reader frames, and much more. Note that the frames do not come with a box and be sure to have your own bag to carry your purchases. This is a three day sale that ends today so I highly recommend carving out some time in your schedule either at lunch or after work. It is also CASH ONLY so be sure to stop by an ATM first.
BOTTOM LINE: I can never recommend this sale highly enough. I have personally shopped there for the last couple of years and always end up buying something. I mean there are $20 glasses! What more do you need people lol
