Found these lovely vintage images of three women wearing bathing suits and fabulous eyewear!
In this part of the photos for Optik Magazine, Dominique and I wanted to focus on antique style and intricate details such as filigree metal, fine acetates and leather.

Very beautiful booth by Leisure Society‘s at the MIDO fair this year!
As I’m in San Francisco I felt I just had to take the chance to finally see the well-known Warby Parker glasses in real life. For yours who aren’t familiar with Warby Parker, it’s a startup from New York focusing on affordable cool glasses with a charity perspective: Buy a pair, give a pair. Warby Parker works with experienced non-profit partners to ensure that each sale of their frames will give someone in need access to affordable glasses. So far, they’ve distributed over 250 000 pairs already(!).
Pictures from the showroom (placed in a cute vintage shop):
Very nice selection of glasses shown on rustic Me and Miz trying out sunnies like nuts
Good looking sunnies (the lenses are really blue, hard to see on the picture though)
Lovely photo from the 20’s found here. Not that different from today’s eyewear fashion, almost 100 years later!
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!
The best costume party of 2012 was Hyper Island‘s Raw Vintage Party last weekend in Püssy A GoGo‘s cellar in Old Town in Stockholm!
The whole place looked like the catwalk of a fancy thrift shop in London. My favorites happened to use eyewear as accessories! This is me (!) by the way in my Graz special edition J.E.R sunglasses. You can call me Lady Yaya!
Rasmus Bjurström, Bjarki Helgason, Martina Lindgren, Sanna Westermark & Antonino Ognissanti!
Magnus Jonsson sporting eyewear straps, nerdy glasses, rad shirt and a mustache to envy!
Emil Löwnander, Sveinung Skaalnes and Markus Frick looking like bad asses!
Sebastian Arvidsson, Astrid Kowalczyk, Tor Åström (in the taped glasses!) & Rosalyn Knapp.
Awesome jacket and custom made sunglasses, man! – Seabasst Ian
Max Less & Tor Åström – the geeks!

Meet Emmy Moström
– a true Eyewear snake* in her frame Barba Amarilla from Vasuma.
Vintage meets punk. Love it!
*Eyewear snake: The overall theme for the Vasuma collection is that here in Sweden bullies make fun of others wearing glasses by calling them “Eyewear snake”. Vasuma Eyewear is all about the revenge of the bullied ones with glasses out there. Each style in the collection is therefore named after a snake. The revenge of the eyewear-snake is finally here.
Thanks for sharing your picture with us, Emmy!
Amazing color combination by Salt, well known for their classic shapes made of the finest acetate.
I love to see new acetate versions of tortoise, like this color from Salt named “vintage blue tortoise”. Big up!
