I’m in love with these wonderful frames from Oliver Peoples! They have relaunched a modified version of the classic MP-2 (the original came in smaller sizes). They’re all made in the old factory situated in Japan, and are therefore of a great quality. The collection also offers a clip-on in the same style. This is perfection.
I love new releases! Specially when they comes with a new twist, like this ones below:
Ray-Ban‘s Signet RB3429 and Round Metal RB3447 are two classic sunglasses from Ray-Ban. Signet has it roots from the 70’s and Round Metal from the 80’s. Today, you can find them in a renewed version with soft faded lenses. We see more and more faded lenses, big like.
RB3447 112/32 “Round Metal”
I like that the lenses aren’t dark as G15. With this faded lens you can have a conversation without being impolite, as your friend is able to see your eyes trough the lenses.
I like the combination of metal and acetate. It gives the shape a thin and cool look, and besides they have adjustable nose pads which often gives the frame a better fit. More metal frames to the people!
The Classics are a great investment and will look good for many occasions and for many years. If taken good care of, a classic sunframe may be passed down to the next generation. If you find one of these in your parent’s drawers, take great care of it.
These classics have been inspiration for many many sunglasses and still going strong.

Last year, I had the pleasure to buy me a pair vintage sunglasses from Ray-Ban. The classic round metal model RB3447, which is from the time when they’re made by Bausch and Lomb.
For you guys who would like to have a pair of these, you no longer have to hunt a vintage pair, because this year Ray-Ban have a new release of this model. Finally!
