From five decades of optical expertise, a soundtrack of jazz music and a passion for timeless design grew an expansive collection of modern, original eyewear looking to the future, yet rooted in history. Each frame is dedicated to a different jazz musician and embedded in the 50s rich social-cultural history and design. Black Eyewear's mixing modern sensibility with an edge and can't help but enhance the character of anyone who wears them. The timelessness of Black Eyewear’s designs resists the push for the new at any cost. The philosophy of slow fashion informs Roope’s designs, remain through the seasons, standing the test of time. Consider a pair of Black Eyewear frames as a staple, a dear friend to last the ages.
