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 550+ premium stockists around the world, including Harvey Nichols, on Net-A-Porter, Moda Operandi, Yoox.com, and Lane Crawford. We are loved by style authorities from Beyonce to Olivia Palermo, Poppy Delevingne and Aimee Song, and in a few months, we’ll be opening our first standalone store in Covent Garden with more to follow in the near future.

Our sunglasses take care of the little details, from 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 its 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.

The next stage of the FAS story will be our Covent Garden Store. Opening its doors towards the end of 2018, it will take its cues from our unique design approach and meticulous attention to detail – think luxe textures, light blue velvet walls, brass fittings and lots of mirrors to help you find the perfect fit. Stay tuned!
