Kendall Jenner's Favorite Eyewear Brand Ahlem Opens in Venice

That was fast. After just a few weeks of anticipation, Ahlem Eyewear has officially slipped into its very first brick and mortar store and studio. Located on up-and-coming Lincoln—just a few steps from Flowerboy Projects and a few blocks from dressmaker Christy Dawn—Ahlem Manai-Platt's debut digs offer an intimate introduction to the frames that stars like Beyonce and Kendall Jenner can't get enough of.

If you want to do as Kendall does, beeline to the shop's Bastille and Concorde styles—she has those two in just about every lens color. A very pregnant and glowing Manai-Platt will most likely greet you on your visit, as the space also holds the designer's office. After selecting your new favorite frames, don't forget to shop the curated collection of bric-a-brac on the adjacent wall.

Ahlem Venice is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
