In a relatively short time, Illesteva has grown from the new kid in the eyewear game to the go-to choice for fashion types, celebs and style-conscious consumers. The next stop in their continued rise: the very first Illesteva retail location. Sitting at the prime downtown New York crossroads of Prince and Lafayette, the Illesteva store carries the full Illesteva collection - meaning that in addition to the brand's famed optical glasses and sunglasses, you can also find their bags and umbrellas.

The minimalist design of the store was inspired by travel, with custom wood displays by Brooklyn-based designer Kurt Schwartzbauer meant to suggest both a ski lodge and 1960's Mediterranean style.
