As Coco Chanel once famously said "Fashion come's and goes, but style last's forever". Style is expressing yourself through what you wear. Often style starts from the bottom up, so you choose your footwear, clothing, jewellery, makeup and hair which all contribute to your style and the way you carry yourself. Glasses are now becoming the accessory of the times and often people don't think how their glasses can alter their appearance and their style. Admittedly, describing glasses as accessories suggest's that we all should each have a pair of glasses for every occasion (you don't wear the same shoes all year round) but we understand this is not feasible. So it's important to make your glasses work for you and enhance your appearance. Some people have an aversion to choosing glasses, however if you chose your frames well, get the size, colour and style that suits your complexion, face shape and own unique style, you wont go far wrong.
As with any trends the celebrities often lead the way. Celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Johnny Depp, Jay-Z and Rita Ora have all recently been spotted wearing retro glasses or vintage inspired glasses. Kendall Jenner and Johnny Depp are trending with their vintage inspired round glasses such as our 242 Round Vintage Glasses. Jay-Z has been known to wear vintage Dunhill glasses on occasion they suit his style and facial characteristics, we have the Dunhill 6073 which is a very stylish and fashionable pair of mens vintage glasses. Rita Ora rocks the cat eye style be it in glasses or sunglasses, Martin Wells 1960's Black Cat Eye is a beautiful example of an orginal vintage cat eye glasses frame.

Some of the definitions of vintage are a time of origin, a group of objects of the same period and a style or fashion of the past. My personal favourite, however, is that it’s characterised by excellence and enduring appeal.
That is, for me, the true essence of vintage.
Styles come and go. We are constantly bombarded with pressure for the latest thing. If it doesn’t have a particular logo blazoned upon it, then forget it!
