A blast from the past brings us the Ray-Ban Clubmaster in a new incarnation. Ray-Ban’s iconic style, first introduced in the 1980’s was modeled after browline glasses first made popular in the 1950’s. Although some predecessors were available in aluminum, this is the first time Ray-Ban has released the Clubmaster in the lightweight metal, giving their frame a what’s-old-is-new-again sleek look and feel. Available in gunmetal, bronze, silver, and black.
While preparing for our upcoming vintage event, our very own Davida Hall has (maybe a little too much?) fun with some of the frames in our vintage collection, frames that Dan has collected over the years from around the globe.
The video features vintage eyewear by Royal Ritz, Emmanuelle Khanh, Yohji Yamamoto, ABC France, Optical Affairs-Christian Roth, Aldo Navarro, Junior Gaultier, Robert La Roche, Claude Montana, Cazal, Krizia, and Laura Biagiotti.

Dan wouldn’t say goodbye to his babies without a proper farewell. He will be on hand to dispense fashion advice, make adjustments, and help find the perfect fit for every face.
“This really is a can’t-miss event,” he says. “These are unique, irreplaceable gems…one of a kind pieces that–once they sell–will be gone forever.”
