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.
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.
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.
We have introduced a new collection of frames to the Roope Vintage online shop: the winter ‘Eye Shadow‘ tint collection. These eye shadow tints take the edge off bright indoor lighting. They are attractive, alluring and add a little bit of mystery and colour to dull winter days.
The ‘eye shadow’ effect is achieved by arranging a delicate graduation of colour along the surface of the lens making it slightly tinted at the top, changing to perfectly clear at the bottom of the lens.
