When? Opened in 2017
Store type: Independent
Owner: Michael Lalande
Q: When did you open Loulou?
A: Loulou is a new shop opened 16 months ago specialising in independent eyewear brands. We stock Ahlem, LPLR, Nathalie Blanc, Masunaga, Salt, Savile Row, Ross & Brown and Oscar Magnuson – brands from different parts of the world – offering exceptional quality, hand-finishing, and special design.
Q: Where are you located?
A: We are in the centre of Lyon in place des Celestins, opposite the beautiful and historic Theatre des Celestins.
Q: Describe the shop and its special features.
A: As you can see, we have created an elegant, modern optical store. Everything is based on the details: the architectural features, and the different services. Our customers can choose their own music, and a drink - whatever they want, soda, beer, wine, coffee or tea. We want them to feel relaxed and as confortable as possible.
Q: Do you have events?
A: Yes! For example, for the summer sale, we have created a new universe, which is graphic, fun and cinematographic named Grand Magasin – inspired by the traditional department stores or old-fashioned general stores.
