Enter: Dr. York Optical. The brand-spanking-new shop from José Castellanos and his wife, Elena Orestano, brings some of the best independent eyewear brands to our sunny city. The indie labels include Whiteout & Glare, Res Rei, Oscar Magnuson, and many more. Plus, the pair have a lofty collection of rare vintage finds including '50s Ray-Bans, Persols from the '60s, and even a few sunnies from YSL in the '70s. Whether you're in the market for a new set, or looking to scope some rad interiors (the space has a sick art-installation vibe) head on over and prepare yourself for a fresh perspective on fancy frames!
