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.

Fabulous Fashionistas

Friday, September 27th, 2013

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!

If you are similarly daring go for colour and size, the brighter and bigger the better.  We recommend the following Black Eyewear and Vintage 80s frames for making a statement.

Stunning Sunnies in Carribean Mystery

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

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’.
