Good Weekend at Goodwood Revival 2015

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Roope Vintage had a blast at Goodwood Revival last weekend.  There was interest in our glasses from a new generation of vintage enthusiasts and we caught up with some familiar faces from St Albans.  As always the atmosphere was fantastic and we received wonderful feedback about Black Eyewear and Robert Roope’s designs.

Goodwood Revival 2014

Friday, September 26th, 2014

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.

Every year Robert Roope heads to Goodwood with vintage eyewear and his own collection, Black Eyewear.

Here are a few of our favourite moments from the weekend:

 

 

 

Black Eyewear Launch Party

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

The launch of the Goodge Street Shop took place Thursday 11th July 2013 and was a huge success thanks to friends and colleagues who joined us.  There were drinks, canapés, live jazz (thanks to Nathan Haines), a competition and of course Black Eyewear glasses and sunglasses!

 

Roope Vintage at Goodwood Revival 2012

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

It has been exactly one week since Roope Vintage exhibited at Goodwood Revival 2012.  This year’s festival broke all the records and was a sell-out event with a record number of attendees!  Motor racing hero Dan Gurney was honoured in style and celebrities Ewan McGregor, Kim Cattrall and Rowan Atkinson were spotted amongst the motor racing enthusiasts.  We had a great time too and it was lovely to catch up with familiar faces we haven’t seen for a while.
