Hunky Dory Celebrates the 70s

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

Looking for a feel good film that will take you back to the sights and sounds of the 70s?  Try recently released Hunky Dory in which enthusiastic drama teacher (Minnie Driver) Vivienne tries to engage her students by putting on a musical version of  Shakespeare’s The Tempest with contemporary songs.  The film also stars Aneurin Barnard and Danielle Branch whose characters play the lead in the musical and develop a budding romance.   This film will certainly put you in the mood for summer sun and features fantastic retro sunglasses.

Vintage glasses in film The Help

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Set to release in the UK on the 26th October, The Help is a film based on Kathryn Stockett’s  book of the same name.  Set in 1960’s Mississippi, Skeeter Phelan an aspiring journalist decides to interview the town’s African American maids and write a book detailing the day to day hardships they face taking care of prominent southern families.  While the film has divided the opinion of American audiences the feel of the 1960’s is undeniable and includes some fantastic cat eye sunglasses and upswept glasses.

Jessica Chastain as Celia Foote can be seen in frames similar to our AA Miami.

Looking for Vintage Sunglasses?

Friday, March 25th, 2011

As the sun begins to make an appearance and the days are getting longer it is time to turn our thoughts to a staple of the Spring/Summer wardrobe – sunglasses.  Tired of the same old pair?  Looking for something unique?  We suggest a return to vintage.  Everyone is turning to vintage when it comes to glasses so why not do the same to rejuvenate your sunglasses collection?  With fantastic style icons to look to such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly how could you go wrong!

Here are a few suggestions for inspiration:

Vintage goes to Goodwood Revival 2010

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Last weekend, just as the buzz from Vintage at Goodwood was dying down, we were off to West Sussex again.  This time to enjoy the atmosphere surrounding the Goodwood Revival Meeting.  We never rest on our laurels and were out promoting the Roope Vintage collection.  New frame Rox proved particularly popular with visitors to our Vintage stand.
