Soho recently underwent an eyewear explosion, Steven Alan added glasses to his namesake line, and now Urban Outfitters is getting a piece of the prescription pie with a Tortoise & Blonde shop-in-shop. Located at the retailer's 628 Broadway store, the pop up will allow the online optical company a chance to offer their selection IRL.
Inside, you'll find a 35-piece collection that includes glasses and sunglasses. Prices range from $97 to $117 and include the cost of your prescription. Trained Tortoise & Blonde staff are on hand to man the shop and answer Rx questions that perhaps the average NYU student slash part time UO employee may not know.
