Vintage Frames Company – Love/Hate Sunglasses

Vintage Frames Company sunglasses

We are proud to welcome to the site Vintage Frames Company by Corey Shapiro.

With one of the largest vintage frame collections in the world, Corey Shapiro has long been considered at the top of sunglass aficionados’, and has been sought out by a bevy of who’s who celebrity clientele.  Designing for and bringing back Cazal to its former glory, he has been a force in the sunglass game north of the border for the past decade.

Now he brings forward his very own debut namesake collection, Vintage Frames Company by Corey Shapiro — available at only a handful of the most exclusive boutiques worldwide.

Kicking off the inaugural collection is an editorial worthy frame, fittingly entitled “Love/Hate”.  Featuring sharp lines and brash detailing it chronicles the opposing forces of Love and Hate, a throwback to Spike Lee’s 1989 classic “Do the right thing”.

Do the Right Thing (1989)

Every frame is handcrafted from Italian Mazzucchelli acetate, with Japanese hardware, and Zeiss lenses for superb optics. Also worth noting each frame comes packaged in a metallic gold sunglass case resembling a solid gold bar – a nice touch.

SUPER AW 2013/2014 ‘Metropolis’

Super Sunglasses - AW 2013/2014 Metropolis Collection

The new Super sunglasses Autumn/Winter 2013/2014 ‘Metropolis’ Collection is now available.

For this cold winter season Super delves into the depths of Fritz Lang’s 1927 iconic sci-fi film ‘Metropolis’ — emerging with new retro super futuristic visions for its lineup.

Dynamic, mechanical, and undoubtedly fresh, the range features a host of raw metallic materials, textures, and rich natural colors.  Super digs into the blacksmiths workshop carving out one of a kind creations using pure steel: shiny, matte and antiqued gold metal and silver galvanic. Other notable highlights include: distressed leather combined with brushed gold, ‘marbled’ acetates, art deco / geometric touches, and one of our favorites the unassuming stealth of the “Matte Black” series featuring their core shapes done in all matte black paired with dark black lenses.

There’s a lot to cover, so without further delay, let’s get to the round up…

Garrett Leight California Optical Summer 2013

The Garrett Leight Spring Summer 2013 collection embodies everything we appreciate in eyewear, it’s: original, classic, and oh so clean — with a laid-back California spirit.

Beautiful custom Japanese acetates, signature metal filigree detailing, and glass lenses with both polarized and anti-reflective options, are just a few of the notable highlights throughout the range. It is technical, yet each frame comes across effortless and universally wearable, which is no easy feat.  You can just feel the thought and care that goes into each design. There are details everywhere you look, even the nose-pads on the new San Juan model have their own small signature touch.

Ksubi Eyewear – Summer 2013

Ksubi Sunglasses - Summer 2013

Ksubi Eyewear’s Summer 2013 collection is now available.

Australian based, Ksubi has long been one of our favorite labels here at Eyegoodies.  They never fail to demonstrate their ability to depart from conformity and create collections which are concise and always original— as in the case with their latest summer 2013 offering.

The range takes its cues from their ready-to-wear collection which highlights “religion, royalty, and old world luxury”. However in true Ksubi fashion this is translated with a fresh fashion forward pulse.   The collection includes a diverse assortment of one of a kind styles, such as the appropriately named ‘BATCAT’, a twist on a cat-eye design where the ends are shaped like a bat’s wings. Or the ‘Lacerta’, a variation of the same shape which features translucent cut-outs.  Fan favorites such as the ‘CISCO’ and ‘ARA’ sunglasses return, but this time are set off with high shine gold metal or gold mirrored lenses.

Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses | ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’

Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses | Manhattan

Eyegoodies is proud to welcome to the site Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses.

Oliver Goldsmith, founded in London in 1926, didn’t invent sunglasses — Nero wore thick slabs of emerald to shield his eyes from fierce Roman sun 2000 years ago. But there are few, if any, who have had the influence that Oliver Goldsmith has. They heralded an eyewear revolution, changing their perception from medical necessity to a fashion must-have.

Oliver Goldsmith 1960's pressIf you haven’t heard of the brand, chances are you have seen their frames. Their signature sunglasses have adorned nearly every major celebrity and style icon from the 50′s onward. Think 20th Century icons such as: Michael Caine, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Jackie O, Princess Diana, and the list goes on.  A true pioneer, their sunglasses were the first to appear in Vogue, and they were the first to work with fashion houses to create one-off pieces for the catwalks.

Today, the legacy and traditions set forth way back then is continued through Oliver’s great-granddaughter Claire Goldsmith. The same quality, craftsmanship, and pride in handmade eyewear — One of kind sunglasses that speak not through obnoxious logos, but by the beauty, individuality, and personality in their designs.

Every year Oliver Goldsmith opens up their famed vintage archives and carefully selects from among their most beloved styles which will comprise their collection. Here we take a detailed look at one of the most iconic sunglasses, movies, and starlets of all time.

Always completely original, Karen Walker doesn’t disappoint this season and delivers a collection which is simultaneously playful, chic, and beaming with vibrant color.  Several new shapes are introduced, ranging from an oversized round sunglass named ‘ORBIT’, to a very well proportioned chunky cat-eye design named “NORETHEN LIGHTS”(our favorite), as well as several stunning frames in between.

Vintage Versace Sunglasses

Vintage Versace Sunglasses

After years of customer requests we have finally decided to offer select sunglasses from our vintage vault to the public — kicking it off here with 4 rare vintage Versace pieces.   Each frame is deadstock (mint condition) and in extremely limited quantity. Since they have not been in production for nearly two decades, once sold out that’s it.

Long before the legendary Notorious B.I.G. donned the now iconic Versace shades in his music video ‘Hypnotize’, they were sought after as being an ultimate symbol of opulence.  A personification of not only the bold and unapologetic style of the Versace fashion house, but of the late Gianni Versace himself.  Versace with his lavish estates spanning the globe, including Milan, Miami Beach, Manhattan, and Lake Como, led many to indulge the “comparison to Roman emperors and Medici princes.”

The most coveted vintage Versace sunglasses are not subtle, but rather evoke an era, style, and culture of success in excess.
