Black Eyewear has certainly been in the press recently. Lots of fantastic stylists have used our glasses and sunglasses in some creative editorials and fashion shoots for a variety of interesting fashion and music publications such as Spindle Magazine, MixMag, Out There and Meade. Singer Nina Nesbitt looks amazing in the heart-shaped ‘Nina‘ sunglasses.
The Goodwood Revival is not only the world’s most historic motor race meeting but is also the only meeting to be staged completely in a nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

That’s right, our favourite time of year, this weekend is Goodwood Revival! We’re back exhibiting in the Revival Market, Stand 103. We look forward to catching up with old friends, making new acquaintances and generally having a good time so stop by, visit us and try on a few pairs of glasses.
Last week’s BBC 2 historical drama Castles in the Sky was the wonderful telling of the invention of the radar which was so important in the Battle of Britain.

Roope Vintage loves exhibiting at Goodwood Revival where there is such a fantastic atmosphere and so much fun to be had! We will be there again this year and are sharing this video we made of last year’s escapades to help to heighten the anticipation.
Television presenter Dawn O’Porter is currently host of the Channel 4 show This Old Thing: The Vintage Clothes Show. A vintage lover herself, we spotted Dawn and her husband Chris O’Dowd browsing the vintage eyewear styles on the Roope Vintage stand at Goodwood Revival last year.
