For the hep cats: Black Eyewear sunglasses

Every once in a while I get sent a press release that really excites me. This morning it was one from a brand I hadn’t heard of before: Black Eyewear.

The label’s glasses and sunglasses are designed by 67 year-old Robert Roope, a jazz fanatic who was born in Hull and managed to travel to different parts of the world, accumulating over a thousand vintage frames along the way. All of the frames for sale are inspired by and named after jazz musicians of the Forties, Fifties and Sixties. 

I’ve not seen such a brilliant range of sunglasses in ages, and with prices starting at £70, these are now on top of my spring wish list.

Buy online from Retrospecs.
