After a week of post-LFW detox still feeling fatigue, not eating properly, been catching up with 500 blog posts on Bloglovin and organising some backlog posts from pre LFW…ooops. I’m still hungry.

Let’s start with Black Eyewear, it’s a retro collection of sunglasses and glasses based on jazz musicians of the 40s/50s/60s and named after them. The designer of the specs is a 67 year old Robert Roope, an avid lover of jazz who although born in Hull has managed to live in different parts of the world and has amassed a collection of over a thousand vintage frames.  He recently showcased at Vintage at Goodwood and is based in St. Albans.

Having looked through his online shopping site, I’m hooked especially with the glasses range.  I would definitely check out this store in St. Albans it’s only two bus rides from N14.
