HAKUSAN MEGANE Opticals (白山眼鏡店)

rsz_ab0302-700x466 rsz_1245Founded in 1883, Hakusan Megane Opticals is one of the pioneering Japanese eyewear company that remained true to their high quality standards and simple designs. With a rich history behind the family-operated business, their classic acetate frames remain relevant and are still highly sought after to this day. The company began to gain exposure in western countries after the iconic songwriter John Lennon started wearing their “Mayfair” model, and eventually they became Lennon’s personal eyewear supplier. Due to their limited production, I have learned my lesson to never again walk away from a pair of Hakusans I have my eyes on and regretfully return the next time to find out they are already sold out.
