Bondi-based eyewear start-up Pacifico Optical have made some pretty huge leaps since their conception in 2014, with famous fans Liam Hemsworth, Silvia Garcia, Jai Stevens, Ethan Turnbull and Brooke Nash all sporting their wares and flying the flag for Aussie-made sunnies.
With their first retail store in the pipeline for next year, founders Alain Guglielmino and Nicholas Guzowski decided it was time for a pop-up to get the bakll rolling, and have opened up shop int he now defunct bottle-o of The Old Clare Hotel in Chippendale, tom get their good to the public in time for Christmas.
“Placing our brand within the beautifully refurbished Old Clare Hotel and its neighbouring lifestyle;e precinct allows us to engage with new consumer groups, outside of our much-loved home of Bondi,” says lawyer slash accountant Guzowski, while his business partner, marketing guru-come-vintage card collector Guglielmino says, “Being the physical showroom to support our e-commerce business we want to entice the customer in from the street and offer them a unique brand experience.” says Guglielmino.
The pop-up is open from 10:00am everyday until the y7th of December at The Old Clare Hotel, Chippendale NSW 2008.
