VINTAGE SPECS

ON A RECENT TRIP TO MILAN I TRACKED DOWN ANDREA MOTTI. I NEEDED TO EXCHANGE SOME VINTAGE PERSOL FRAMES I HAD BOUGHT FROM HIM ON EBAY. HE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO LEAD ME INTO HIS INNER SANCTUM ( A SMALL APARTMENT OUSIDE THE CITY CENTER) AND SHOWED ME THE MOTHER LOAD OF VINTAGE FRAMES. ANDREA'S FATHER WAS A VERY PROMINENT OPTHAMOLOGIST IN ITALY AND THEY BOTH TRAVELLED AROUND TO MOM AND POP SHOPS THAT WERE CLOSING DOWN IN ITALY AND BOUGHT THEIR INVENTORY OF FRAMES. THE INVENTORY WAS MIND BOGGLING. YOU CAN FIND HIS STUFF ON HIS EBAY STORE: THE ITALIAN VINTAGE CORNER - OF COURSE.

THESE BEAUTIFUL ACETATE FRAMES WERE DISTRIBUTED BY THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT TO PEOPLE OF NEED WHO REQUIRED READING GLASSES.

WAY OVERDUE...

SORRY GANG I WAS A BIT DISTRACTED LATELY. I WAS REALLY DELINQUENT ON KEEPING UP WITH NEW CONTENT. BLAME INSTAGRAM...WELL I AM NOW DEDICATED TO GETTING THIS BLOG A FACELIFT AND KEEPING UP WITH RELEVANT CONTENT. MORE TO COME. PLEASE STAND BY.

GOOD TEASER HERE FROM MY TRIP TO THE GRAND CONCOURSE DE CHANTILLY. RICHARD MILLE REALLY BROUGHT IT TO THE PREMIER OF THE EVENT.
IT WAS A JAW DROPPING EXPERIENCE.
