Woodzee: beautiful wooden sunglasses

Oliver Peoples: Vintage Eyewear

Oliver Peoples consistently impress me with their eyewear collections, and this latest is no different.

Earlier that year, they purchased an estate collection of vintage American-made eyewear. The assortment included thousands of beautifully filigreed rimless and metal frames, including clip-on …

Trend: Flat Brow Sunglasses

Last year it was Wayfarers. Everywhere. This summer, it will still be Wayfarers, Everywhere. They are just to easy to wear, suit more people than any other sunglasses, aren’t too flashy and are a design classic. However, the flat brow sunglasses are the way forward. The silhouette does bare resemblance to the Wayfarer on some models, but the nicest ones …

Ray-Bans were last year’s hit sunnies, but this year maybe try something a little more anonymous?

A Vintage Find: My Retro Sunnies from Rokit

vintage.jpg

I’m currently down in London, lapping up the (dubious) sunshine and attempting to dress in a way befitting of the cramped, and quite frankly grumpy, tube passengers.
