A selection of round vintage sunnies, to be found at Lunettes Brillenagentur Shop in Berlin-Mitte.
Vintage Ray-Ban. The original version of today’s RB3475-Q.
Love this combination! The total opposite of what we’re used to see on acetate/metal eyewear. Normally they have acetate on top, like to Clubmaster style. But this is just geeky and awesome!
Or what about super round with double nose bridge like this one. Love it!

Last weekend I visited the Lunettes Store at Torstrasse 172 in Berlin. What a beautiful boutique! They offer a huge collection of unworn vintage frames, both sun and ophthalmic. Besides that, they also have some handpicked brands (such as Clair Goldsmith, Moscot and Garrett Leight) and even more unique: their own line “Lunettes Kollektion” containing refined vintage shapes in interesting colors.
It’s a lovely story behind the lunettes shop. It all began with Uta Geyer. Uta was working as a scenery searching for vintage revisit for a theater when she came over the huge interest for vintage frames. Later on, she found such a beautiful (and cheap!) optometrists booth at eBay that she couldn’t resist to buy. One day, when sitting in a café she saw an empty boutique hall for rental… So all of a sudden she had an optometrists booth and a empty boutique just in front of her – this was a sign for the beginning of Lunettes Brillenagentur.
