When I was in Amsterdam I ran into this cute Japanese boy from Tokyo! I was so amazed about his colorful vintage/street style, perfectly matched together with a vintage frame. When I say frame this time I really mean just a frame. No prescription or window lenses on. Just a cool frame as a great accessory!
Apparently this is a huge trend in Japan I’ve heard, is it true? Does anyone know where it stems from? So interesting! Hope to see more of it in Europe soon.
Sometimes it’s fun to accessorize with glasses in other ways than actual glasses.
I bought this broche at the Brillenmuseum in Amsterdam, Netherlands last summer. they have an excellent collection of old glasses and anything historical concerning optometry. I will post photos from the museum in the future. If in amsterdam, you should definately pay them a visit! They also sell vintage frames such as Persol Ratti.
