Dimitri Pers worked for five years in the eyewear industry before making the leap into the world of entrepreneurship in 2016. These years of experience allowed him to realize that there was a gap in the market; there were few quality frames at affordable prices. Ambitious and creative, he took the plunge and opened his first LEONE Eyewear boutique. Meet Dimitri Pers, founder and owner of LEONE Eyewear.
LEONE Eyewear is first a concept: we design frames at a price that everyone can afford. Every three months, we introduce new models to our customers. Our goal as a company is to prove that we can offer a selection of high-quality eyewear at very competitive prices ... not to mention our impeccable customer service.
What sets us apart is our quality/price ratio. At LEONE Eyewear, we focus on the quality of our products at an affordable price, we offer fine and carefully selected materials like titanium, stainless steel and Italian acetate. We also have a line of ultra-light TR90 frames. We work with ESSILOR, the world leader in lens design and manufacturing. We also make it a priority to serve our customers in the most personalized way possible, our customers will never feel like numbers.
Buying local means supporting local livelihoods. When we buy locally, we allow our neighbor to have a job, who will then buy in turn, etc. And above all, buying here does not necessarily mean paying more.
What are your favorite pieces this spring, and why?
- Aria model for women; available in 5 shades, this frame will highlight your beautiful complexion under the spring sun. Plus, it's ultra-light.
- For men, the Griffintown frame, named after the high-end Montreal neighborhood, creates a beautiful urban look that goes with everything.
What are LEONE Eyewear’s projects for 2021?
We will open some stores, refresh our website for an even better customer experience, and offer many new arrivals.
