"You will never walk out without a smile"

Beautiful, unique glasses that accent your personality.  For Wim Somers and his wife Jamme, that was the key ambition when they opened Somers Optiek in the creative heart of Antwerp. In his quest for fashionable eyewear that stands out from the crowd, Wim found his soulmate in Patrick Hoet. In 1989, they decided to launch a line of their own under the name of theo eyewear. Somers Optiek became theo’s Flagship Store, a showcase for the famously quirky Belgian brand, complemented by guest collections.
Over the years, the shop as undergone a few changes. For example, their son Jan took over the business and expanded the space. But their aim has remained the same: bringing a smile to the face of every customer!
