Did you know that over 50% of Canadian adults require corrective eyewear? And that by the time we hit age 50, 80% of our peers will be wearing glasses. In such a bespectacled world, why not stand out with a pair (or two) of luxury glasses or sunglasses?


Top Luxury Glasses Brands

At solis optics, we carry luxury eyewear from the world’s top fashion designers that is available in store at our locations across Canada. Here are some of our favourite luxury brands and names:


Cartier has been creating luxury eyewear since 1887, when a French princess requested designer eyewear from Monsieur Louis Cartier himself! The rest, as they say, is l’histoire, and Cartier luxury frames can now be seen on the rich and famous and the rest of us too. The vintage look of Cartier combines bubinga wood and 22-carat gold. Whether you buy Cartier sunglasses or frames, you’re choosing a timeless masterpiece.  


Maui Jim is the line for luxury sunglasses. They offer over 125 styles of polarized sunglasses inspired by the surf, sand, and sun of Hawaii as well as a line of optical eyeglasses. The colourful frames provide the best of both worlds, protecting your eyes while in style.


Ray-Ban is the quintessential sunglass designer, but they also offer standard designer eyewear for your everyday optical needs. Ray-Ban offers iconic styles that stand the test of time, and special collaborations. The Ferrari collection is stylish and chic, while the Disney collection is more playful yet still fashionable.


Tom Ford is named after the American fashion designer and filmmaker who worked as a creative director at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent before starting his own brand in 2005. Tom Ford offers luxury frames and sunglasses, including a variety of eco-responsible frames with unique styles and colours.


Gucci was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921. Over its century in the designer fashion world, Gucci has contributed artistic flair and neo-Renaissance beauty to the industry. The latest models of eyewear include bulky acetate frames in unique colours and shapes and more sleek geometrical metal glasses. Both carry Gucci’s signature branding and are available as corrective eyewear and sunglasses.


Versace has been producing luxury Italian-made fashion and accessories since 1978. Versace still offers its unique fashion flair in haute couture and luxury eyewear in frames of various colours, shapes, and materials.


Burberry is best known for its trench coats and leather accessories that have been on the market since the mid-1800s!!! However, their designer eyewear has been captivating spectacle-wearing fashionistas since the 1990s. They offer a wide selection of luxury frames that fit every face shape and combine style and tradition in frames for work and play indoors and out.


Armani began offering luxury eyewear in the late 1980s with Giorgio Armani’s own wire-rimmed oval silver glasses. Their designer glasses are now sold under the Emporio Armani banner with a commitment to selecting sustainable raw materials, including recycled and organic materials, for all their luxury eyewear.
