Alain Mikli, the iconic French luxury eyewear company, announced the re-opening of its Madison Avenue location. Previously located at 986 Madison Avenue, the shop has now moved to 1025 Madison Avenue between 78th and 79th Streets. Alain Mikli caters to the most sophisticated and chic shoppers who have an affinity for innovative design and technology offering the latest trends in luxury eyewear from the collections of Alain Mikli and Starck Eyes.
Created by world renowned interior designer, Philippe Starck, the new Alain Mikli boutique is a stunning display of sophistication. Situated amongst the most luxurious boutiques on Manhattan’s exclusive Madison Avenue, the new shop is approximately 900 square feet. Featuring clean lines, the modern glass cabinets and displays highlight the eyewear as works of art. The interior is effortless; cream-colored floors combined with warm wood walls create a rich and inviting atmosphere that is both timeless and elegant. Illuminating the boutique is the singular show stopping centerpiece, a magnificent Italian hand-crafted red chandelier from Andromeda Murano.
This eye-catching shop is not a place where people pass by, it is a destination where people go and meet, offering customers a new relationship with their optician. The boutique takes special care with particular attention paid to customers in a spirit of custom-made services, solely dedicated to the sight.
“We are thrilled to re-open our shop on Madison Avenue. Our clients in Manhattan have been among our most loyal and we are so happy to offer them a new beautiful location to shop just in time for the holiday season,” said Sophie Guerard-Raubiet, Vice President of Alain Mikli US Retail.
An optician by trade, Alain Mikli invented a whole new profession: “eyewear designer”. For more than 30 years he has pursued his passion for people’s eyes and how they can look their best. The fundamental idea is quite simple; transform constraint into style, a handicap into an expression of personality. Alain Mikli eyeglasses are a singular combination of tradition and perfection: traditional materials, meticulous production, and unrivaled comfort thanks to a patented system. They are “frames to see as well as to be seen”.
To celebrate the grand re-opening, Mr. Alain Mikli himself made a special appearance at the new shop on December 13th. Alain Mikli is located at 1025 Madison Avenue between 78th and 79th Streets. The boutique phone number is 212-472-6085.
