At Vision Expo East in NYC, we sat down with Jack Erker III from Studio Optyx, which you might know from the TEF shoot with his brand NW77th. But the Erkers do so much more. Not just do they run 4 opticals in the St. Louis area, but they also have an enormous heritage when it comes to frame design, going back 140 years.
Studio Optyx is family Company Since 1879. Inspired by the generations that came before them, the Erkers have dedicated their lives to the art of beautiful eyewear. For over 140 years the Erker family continues to design high quality, fine eyewear that can last a lifetime.
