Mercura NYC sunglasses - sculptured eyewear art

What I like about Mercura NYC, from Rachel Cohen-Lunning and Merrilee Lichtenstein Cohen at the Hotel Chelsea, is that it goes beyond all that. It's bigger, more profound, it's art and I love it. Next time I'm in Manhattan, I know where I'm going. More on Mercura here and an inconceivable amount on Facebook...

Since the 1970s Rachel and Merrilee have designed fantasy jewelry, metal dresses, metal bustiers, headdresses, crowns, cigarette holders and more. Oh, and eyewear...
