Ollie Quinn is an independent eyewear company that maintains fair prices while using the best-quality materials. How? OQ designs all frames in-house and sells only in its own boutiques, offering one £98 price point for all frames, including single vision prescription lenses for eyeglasses and polarised lenses for sunglasses.

By side-stepping traditional optical sales methods, cutting prescription lenses locally, and working directly with manufacturers, OQ removes the need for intermediaries and markups, providing premium, creatively designed frames at one affordable price.

The OQ team worked with local architecture firm Here There Architecture to create a welcoming space that reflects the historically rich neighbourhood, featuring Victorian tiles and lavish timber floors, alongside brushed brass, birch plywood and an emphasis on clean white lines. The Bath boutique has been designed by creative duo Jordana Lyden-Swift and Nikki McFarland.“The new boutique is bright, with the natural textures and plants designed to give a calming respite while you choose your glasses or wait for an optometrist appointment.” said Jordana, Partner and Architectural Designer, Here There Architecture.

The newly opened Bath boutique at 14 New Bond Street, Bath BA1 1BE, includes a certified in-store optometrist, who will provide full eye exams so customers have a one-stop shop to find the perfect eyewear for a price that won’t hurt the wallet.

OQ’s operational model is defined as Glocal — that is, “Think Global and Act Local. With founders from Canada, Australia and South Africa, and boutiques located across Canada and the United Kingdom, OQ aims to source the best materials and talent around the globe while retaining local roots through regional suppliers and community input.

Competition closes on 11 December.
