Oliver Goldsmith Vintage

Lately I’ve really been into glasses/shades, I love every piece of eyewear Karen Walker makes. But I think Oliver Goldsmith Vintage frames have won me over. Hailing from England, the Goldsmith family/company have been in business since 1926 & are the pioneers of merging fashion & eyewear. Initially limited to materials like tortoise-shell(which I love) and bulky metal, the company gradually evolved offering handmade specs in various styles for fashion notables like Dior & Givenchy. Goldsmith Vintage frames are a testament to the ever popular saying, theres nothing new under the sun. I’m sure many of the recent “eyewear” designers can take a note or two. Amazingly you can still browse their vintage archive & have a pair custom made. Here are a few of my favs!
