Updated: 2 days ago



Marrying heritage styles with a cool, contemporary twist, Ryan Simkhai Eyeshop’s frames are timeless yet totally 21st century. Founded by fashion entrepreneur Ryan Simkhai in 2019, his eponymous label has made waves in the eyewear world thanks to its unexpected color combinations and pleasingly accessible price points.


As the summer sun cranks up the heat, so does the brand’s sizzling new collection. It stars a carefully curated array of sunglasses, readers, and sun readers which are funky remixes of classic silhouettes. From retro Wayfarers in bright color combos to oversized cat-eyes, Ryan Simkhai’s collection will have you turning heads and catching rays in style.


Adele


The 50s Barbie vibes are strong with Adele. Coming in cream, black, or tortoiseshell colorways, these sunglasses feature elegantly curved cat-eye frames that channel vintage glamour. The polarized lenses provide full UV protection while adding a touch of mystery to your look, whether you're lounging poolside or exploring the city.


Dylan


Evoking a classic Wayfarer style for him and her, Dylan comes with a transparent twist. Featuring chunky, crystal-clear frames in green or light gray, these retro gems blend classic cool with a modern edge, making them the ultimate accessory for sun-soaked adventures. 


Mona


Two-tone and totally fly, Mona is all about bold contrasts and vibrant vibes. Featuring sleek polycarbonate frames that are as durable as they are dazzling, the two-tone colors in blue-brown or green-brown seamlessly blend hues for a mesmerizing look, for a splash of fun to your summer ensemble.


An LA love affair 


With its electric and eclectic vibe, Los Angeles is the beating heart of Ryan Simkhai’s designs. As a true-blue Angeleno, he grew up immersed in the world of beauty and fashion. With entrepreneurial savvy and a flair for the creative, Ryan has crafted a brand that embodies his home city’s vibrant culture and boundless creativity.


Since Los Angeles style is rooted in a culture of contrasts (think; West Coast boho beach vibes, Venice skater streetwear, and Hollywood red carpet glam), Ryan’s vintage-inspired eyewear aligns perfectly with the city’s ability to blend the old with the new, the casual with the chic, and the traditional with the avant-garde.



Celebrity sightings

 

Ryan’s unique styles have caught the eye of many a celebrity, making the label a go-to favorite. Endorsed by tastemakers like Oprah, Trinny Woodall, Dorinda Medley, and Dr. Holly the brand’s also been splashed across prestigious media such as Oprah’s Favorite Things, Good Morning America, ABC’s The View, and The Tamron Hall Show. With such high-profile fans, it’s no wonder everyone wants a pair of these chic specs.


Expanding horizons


While Ryan Simkhai Eyeshop started retailing online only, it didn’t take long for the brand to branch out. Now, you can find these fabulous frames in boutique retailers nationwide, in Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and UK. This expansion means more style-savvy shoppers can get their hands on these must-have accessories. By teaming up with like-minded businesses, Ryan Simkhai Eyeshop continues to strengthen its stylish grip on the eyewear market.
