New Store Alert: Durant Sessions Eyewear Shop in Vancouver*~

Durant Sessions is the newest addition to Vancouver’s eminent shopping district of Gastown. Shoppers are welcomed to the space by a long central table showcasing goods from the likes of the newly revived EYEVAN 7285 from Japan, limited edition and luxury frames from Ohio-based anni shades, iconic eyewear from California-based Oliver Peoples and more. The shop is further adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows and old-world touches like exposed beams as well as an antique safe-door, left wide open to emphasize the shop’s open-concept aesthetic. The store’s name pays homage to a series of music recordings in LA between Durant Sessions founder Eric Dickstein and a mentor from the optical industry.
