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 say grab any excuse to celebrate on a lovely day like today. Did you know July 14th is Bastille Day. Embrace your inner Francophile, get decked out in blue white and red and don’t forget your Eiffel Tower sunglasses!
Roope Vintage was at Goodwood again this year and with a record number of attendees we were pleased to see a large proportion of them in our stand over the 3 day event!
Did you see the Channel 4 Cutting Edge documentary Fabulous Fashionistas? Six ladies with an average age of 80 not afraid to be bold when it comes to fashion and eyewear!
Marple – a Caribbean Mystery, which was shown Sunday night on ITV, featured some stunning cat eye sunglasses. Classic 1950s styles were worn by Hermione Norris as Evelyn Hillingdon and MyAnna Buring as Lucky Dyson who turned out not to be so lucky. Miss Marple managed to make quite an impression on the crochety old Rafiel played by Antony Sher who wore frames similar to the Black Eyewear ‘Artie’.
