Company description

Founded in 2016, For Art’s Sake is a London-based design brand specialising in fashion-forward eyewear. In two short years, we’ve grown exponentially, and currently appear in 650+ premium stockists around the world, including Harvey Nichols, Net-A-Porter, Saks 5th Ave, and Lane Crawford. We’re also loved by style authorities from Beyonce to Olivia Palermo, J-Lo and Aimee Song.

Our sunglasses take care of the little details from the exquisite craftsmanship to decadent velvet packaging and speedy shipping, so that you can focus on the bigger picture – conquering the world one stylish step at a time. Whether it’s through our designs, on social media or our blog, we celebrate the bold woman building a bright future; she is an enigma – a playful power-dresser; both effortless and elegant; a master of reinvention.

Handmade using the best materials our designs are equally as bold; think tinted lenses, pearl-encrusted bridges, and exaggerated silhouettes. It’s these unique features that set us apart, but we haven’t stopped there. We want you to be able to wear your sunglasses forever, so we ensure that every pair is 100% UV protected and features adjustable nosepads for the perfect fit. We also work with two charities to plant a tree and donate a pair of glasses to those in need with every purchase made.


Our stores
In early 2019, we opened stores in London's Covent Garden and Shanghai's Xin Tian Di Mall. The spaces take their cues from our unique brand features: think lashing of blue velvet, brass fixtures and mirrors on mirrors to help you find the perfect fit. We also offer consultations and a personal shopping service to further your in-store experience.
