Summer is here and Bengaluru’s sun is glaring at us. Raise the temperatures higher with the newest collection of sunglasses launched at SR Gopal Rao. Recently, we witnessed the launch of new sunglasses from Prada, Tiffany & Co., Burberry, Gucci, Bvlgari, Miu Miu, Tory Burch, Ray ban and more at the SR Gopal Rao’s outlet at Jayanagar. 

While the event was mainly for the launch of the Summer/Spring 2023 collection, the curators of this event took care of all other essentials during the event to make it one of a kind. From nutritious, healthy food to makeup tips from the Zorain studio, the launch of new sunglasses at SR Gopal Rao was packed with engaging activities that we all loved. 

Here’s a sneak peek of the little easter eggs that surprised us at this event!

  • SR Gopal Rao’s Heritage Walk

This store had hidden little surprises as we walked through the store. Bangalore’s oldest, family-run, luxury optical business has a legacy of over 80 years. The ancestral items that were showcased at the event are tools and instruments of dispensing Optometry that started it all. These ‘preserved treasures’ included a lens polishing tool, a wooden vision chart, and an Axis marker. The most interesting piece of antique was a branding tool that was used to punch the brand name or logo onto the frame of the glasses.
