Black Eyewear London has just opened at 38 Goodge Street, making journeys to our St Albans showroom unnecessary. We welcomed our first customers Friday as we were setting up. Be sure to visit soon for designer glasses and sunglasses.

We’ve joined Pinterest and love creating pin boards for Roope Vintage and Black Eyewear. It’s not all about the frames either, check out the inspiration behind Black Eyewear with posts on Jazz and design favourites. Here’s a little sample, please follow us and spread the word by repinning!
Design is important to us at Roope Vintage and is evident in our collection of vintage and reproduction glasses and sunglasses. Design also runs in the Roope family.
London design group Hulger has won awards for its eco friendly light bulb, Plumen. The world’s first designer low-energy light bulb was co-designed by Nicholas Roope, son of Robert Roope. Here he is wearing fab retro Anglo American Princeton glasses while demonstrating the versitility of the Plumen!
Channel 4’s recent series, an adaptation of William Boyd’s best selling novel ‘Any Human Heart,’ includes appearances by Gillian Anderson and Tom Hollander as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor – just two of the many historical figures who crop up in a fictionalised context in the novel. The couple wear some fantastic sunglasses of the period, similar to our Black Eyewear Coltrane and Toots. If you want to recreate this stylish look go to BlackEyewear.com.
13 year old fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson has been making headlines. Darling of the fashion world she can do no wrong with friends and supporters such as Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld. We applaud Tavi for her bold eyewear choices and appreciate her fashion forward approach to eyewear.
She wears bold Clear Crystal Sunglasses similar to Black Eyewear Zoot.
She even rocks the Granny Chic look in some small clear crystal frames.
RoopeVintage recently received a lovely e-mail from our friend Mama Tokus. She kindly supplied us with photos of herself in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, at the Burning Man Festival this September. She looks fab wearing her Tatum sunglasses against the colourful background of the desert.
Check out Mama Tokus and her amazing jazz music on YouTube.
