Now at We Love To Boogie - 'Decades Collectable Eyewear'
There is now a fully functioning vintage opticians at We Love To Boogie.
This is the only place outside the USA that offers this dedicated optical service, all unworn, these frames are some serious face attire. Ranging from the turn of the last century, the bulk of the frames are from the 40s to the 80s.
The beginning of what I fear could become an expensive addiction - 'Derek' by Augusto Valentini.
This means a collectors dream of frames including sexy wing tips for the ladies, and enough tortoise shell styles to tempt the dapper gent or the wannabe Don Johnson. The range is truly exceptional and there is genuinely something for every face shape, with staff that have usually mentally picked a pair or two for you before you have ascended the stairway to optical heaven, OK I'm gushing a bit but only because I want so many of them.
As this is an actual opticians, with trained opticians to hand, you can go in with your prescription, or indeed have your eyes tested to get your lenses put into any of the frames you pick out.
Alongside the vintage frames are collectable and new limited edition Ray Bans and Persols, which from January 2011 will be available from www.welovetoboogievintage.com.
