BromptonsThis cheerful, funky store is an esteemed opticians that just loves to dabble in a bit of summer fun. Located on High Street Kensington, it's faithful to its upmarket locale and stocks a raft of ultra-trendy sunspecs. Hip and fashionable Kensington natives often pop in, in search of titanium frames by Lindberg and Silhouette or, again, designs by Philippe Starck. They also sell German brand ic! and Oliver Peoples, both of which churn out really stylish frames. Bromptons is a great place to grab yourself a pair of well-fitting, fashionable frames – they sell some of the best in summer eyewear.
