What makes them haute:

The need for the right kind of eyewear shopping experience led Larry Sands to redefine the industry. Today, his high-end optical shop, Optical Shop of Aspen has several outposts all over the nation and Optical Shop of Aspen International, the company’s wholesale division, designs, distributes and owns licenses to the Blinde, Chrome Hearts, Hiero, Kieselstein-Cord and Matsuda eyewear brands. Most recently, Sands opened V.A.U.L.T., a high-end, multi label boutique on Lincoln Road carrying everything from fine jewelry and timepieces to ready-to-wear, and, of course, eyewear. You can find Larry and his stunning wife Christina at the most star-studded charity events across the country.
