Monocle was started in 2019 by two friends with a passion for good design.
Glasses are a staple of our local landscape - four-fifths of young adults here are myopic. Both of us wear glasses, as do our entire families.
For something as common and essential as our daily doses of Teh Tarik and Singlish quips, we wanted to bring glasses with good design and fair pricing to Singaporeans.
And for something that so strongly defines how we look, why can’t glasses be as interchangeable as the outfits we buy and the shoes we wear?
