Vintage Eyewear in The Crown

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Haven’t seen The Crown yet.  Fantastic telly to binge watch over the holidays and lots of gorgeous vintage frames to lust after.  Here is our pick of the best: Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in sunglasses similar to the VIVIEN, Matt Smith as Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in aviator sunglasses similar to QUINCY and John Lithgow as Winston Churchill in small round frames similar to POPS.

And a little heads up, look out for Black Eyewear featuring in Series 2.
