Silicon Valley was an obvious choice for the latest JINS store—the Japanese eyewear brand’s SCREEN glasses reduce eye strain by blocking blue light emitted by electronic devices.

After opening at Santana Row earlier this year, Maker’s Market is hosting a holiday pop-up at Valley Fair in November and December. The 1,500-square-foot marketplace features apparel, accessories, home goods and beauty products by over 100 independent artisans. Westfield Valley Fair, 2855 Stevens Creek Blvd., Santa Clara, 408.320.1868

Tadashi Shoji’s soon-to-open boutique is the fashion house’s first to contain a dedicated bridal salon. The 3,000-square-foot space is adorned with a glass arboretum constructed from vintage windows. Westfield Valley Fair, 2855 Stevens Creek Blvd., Santa Clara

Warby Parker is bringing its affordable acetate and titanium glasses to downtown Palo Alto in early November. Snag one of the new store’s exclusives: jet-black Barkley frames with blue lenses. 555 Ramona St., Palo Alto, 650.352.8423
