Since 2008, we've traveled the world purveying the largest "dead-stock" , or unworn, vintage eyewear archive of frames from the '50s – '00s. After 10+ years of purveying eyewear, it was time we brought back the fun to an institute that once was vibrant with individual personality.
We've made it our mission to become the most disruptive, transparent eyewear company on the planet using vintage techniques long forgotten by the large eyewear houses.
In 2018, we started designing and producing our own collection of eyewear - paying homage to our vintage archive and mixing cultural references of today to create timeless fashion pieces. All products are made using top of the line materials and vintage techniques to create some of the highest quality frames in the market. We design frames that can be worn for both non-prescription (sunglasses and editorial use) as well as prescription (sun and everyday) eyewear.
We believe eyewear should be used as a form of self-expression.
Our CEO and Founder, Corey Shapiro, draws his inspiration from some of the biggest cultural icons in the world - from Elton John to Run DMC who use eyewear as a form of self-expression. Frames act as a barrier between the wearer and the rest of the world - providing confidence to face the world head-on.
Here at Vintage Frames eyewear has no sexes, just unique personalities.
Unlike most eyewear brands, Vintage Frames Company designs collections that are completely unisex. We believe frames are meant to fit your personality. Each collection designed by Vintage Frames Company draws inspiration from personalities within culture.
What started from humble Montreal beginnings, turned into a global movement.
We've teamed up with some of our friends, who happen to be some of the biggest names in culture, to create authentic collaborations. Giving the creator a platform to express their individual personality in a new medium.
Vintage Frames Company ships worldwide and has retail footprints in Montreal, Canada and Miami, Florida (Fall 2022). You can also find us in select retail locations across the world such as:
