The birth of ALO began from very small question. "Billions of people in this world wear spectacles but why are the eyewear shops always so boring and serious?" We couldn't find any place that could satisfy us.
We were always wondering. "What kinds of spectacles frames suit me? What will look more trendy. What's the difference between metal frames and plastic frames or others? What kind of lens should I choose considering my own eyesight and lifestyle? What is a reasonable price for a pair of glasses?" and so on.
Meanwhile, we began taking an interest in SPA (Specialty Label Apparel) brands in the fashion industry. We found that the secret to success of popular SPA brands which are currently leading world fashion industry is fully understanding the lifestyles of the younger generations who want to live a free, individual, yet very practical life.
"ALO" soon noticed the potential power of eyewear as a fashion item in current trends. At the same time, we started to listen to the voices of those who have a thirst for "enjoyable" eyewear.
Because ALO was born from those ideas and questions, our slogans always have been, "passion for fashion and style", "persistence in design and quality", "strong aversion to vanity and inefficiency" and "full comprehension of trends".
We will always remember these ideas to provide our customers with spectacles of higher value.
ALO is collaborating with gifted artists to present special visions to the world through their originality and creativity.
