Touting a list of celebrity fans such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Rihanna, the e-tailer is easy to shop at, especially for people who like to match their eyewear to their face shape as they categorise their frames by shapes.

Besides fashion-forward designs that vary from sci-fi visors to teeny tiny rectangular lenses that rest on the tip of the nose (and therefore have no sun protection quality), Gentle Monster is also known for their museum-like store designs. Take the Marina Bay Sands store for example, where features post-apocalyptic decor that parallels the intent behind their latest ’13’ collection. Head there for a a visual spectacle.   Gentle Monster boutiques are located at #01-13, ION Orchard and #B2-103, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.   Budget-friendly and accessible: Owndays

The brand was first founded by a Singaporean while he was still in his final year in university, as he realised there was a gap in the market for stylish but affordable glasses. He started selling on Carousell but soon moved on to his own site. foptics now offers international shipping and free registered shipping in Singapore for orders over $50. The fuss-free process involves heading to their website, choosing a frame and deciding on a type of lens as well as whether you need prescription lenses to go with it. They will then contact you about the specifications of your degree. foptics has also published their prices online for full transparency. Prices start from S$12.90, and designs are chic and modern.   Minimalist designs: Molsion

But don’t brush them off for being a vintage-inspired label as Molsion has a variety of unique and trendy designs, such as the Redrum sunglasses that draw inspiration from Cupid’s arrow and have an almost hexagonal lens design.   Molsion’s boutique is located at #02-31 Plaza Singapura, 68 Orchard Road, Singapore 238839.
