Monokel Description

Monokel Eyewear SS22 Collection

We’re kicking off Monokel’s shop debut this season with a bang, bringing in seven styles that range from utilitarian round black frames like the River, Aki and Forest, to more eye-catching frames like the Kaia and Apollo, and of course the Nelson and Otis which have a bit more vintage flair. Whichever you choose, you can rest easy knowing that you’re picking up a pair of glasses that’s great for the environment and tough as nails. All Monokel’s frames are made by hand from recyclable, plant-based acetate and they’ve got Carl Zeiss lenses for superior UV protection.

Introducing Monokel Eyewear

Monokel is an eyewear brand like no other. The Stockholm-based label does a lot of things differently, but not in any sort of way that calls attention to themselves. For one, their sunglasses are all unisex. Come one, come all: Monokel makes eyeglasses for every face. They’re also sustainable. Not the “these glasses are made of cardboard, and our logo is a tree” kind of sustainable – Monokel instead favours recycled and plant-based acetates to compose their stylish, handcrafted frames. There’s a sense that these things are just matter of fact to the folks at Monokel. After all, why shouldn’t sunglasses be eco-friendly? Why isn’t all eyewear ungendered? Monokel is bravely carving out a future where this stuff isn’t revolutionary, it’s just the way things are. Learn more...

Wallace is a moodboard for all the things that we love, enjoy,
and are inspired by. We thrive off the things that inspire us, and the desire to express that inspiration. Every brand and piece of apparel at Wallace is chosen because it connects with us in some way, and we want to share that with you.

We want people to see that they can be and dress in a way that is unconstrained by judgment or what is deemed to be “the norm.” Inspiration is not stagnant or set in stone. It changes, evolves, and moves with the ebbs and flows of our lives. So does our store.

We are constantly updating our stock to be in line with that which inspires us. Wallace Mercantile is all about the
things that inspire us.
