Who Are You:
What's happening Vintage Frames! I have no taste for fine wine, I like simple things: colors lights and shapes, I remember action movie quotes and I'm a local head in the Montreal music scene, moving on projects of all types. I dj representing the critically acclaimed Peer Pressure crew and push 3d animation for a dope production studio called Moment Factory.
What is your most prized pair of Vintage Frames and why:
I have a pair of Porsche Design Carrera's with interchangeable lenses, but these ones are different. The lenses I have for these are tri-toned from purple to blue to pink. The colors are just as relaxing looking out as they are looking in. It's a permanent vacation of Flamingos, miami sunsets, speedboats, white suits, neon lights, no socks and boardwalks.
What is your earliest memory of a pair of frames that stuck in your head until today:
Michael Jacksons dark Ray Ban Aviators from his 1984 Grammy winnings. Michael's look is an inspiration, and I don't care how obvious I am. Till this day, I have never seen anything cooler than that. In a way, I hope I never do.
If you could stumble upon 1 pair of Vintage Frames, what would it be:
I lost a pair of Cazal 901's last year in the Caribbean Ocean, that my girl Shaydakiss found for me. She got them for 5 maybe 10 dollars. I didn't expect to loose my balance like that, the waves ripped the Cazal's off my face,. Since then I've made peace, because I've convinced myself that they will find me again. It will be an epic moment, and a triumphant return. They were white when I lost them, they will be silver trimmed MJ Ray-Ban Aviators when they return.
About how many Vintage Frames do you have in your collection:
I have 15 classy pairs and a few knock offs that I am hoping to swap for official dazzlers.
Why do you choose Vintage Frames instead of new eyewear:
I love different pieces, but not everything has to be out of this world and ridiculous. Out of print or rare doesn't necessarily make the frames valuable, but they become valuable when you work em into your collection, and turn em into that extraordinary piece that you think looks dope. The fun part is looking back years later and saying... wtf was I thinking. Anyways, what would you do if you cut a fresh Gumbi?
