Vintage Frames Shop x Caviar Exotic Wood Collection

With four years of proven success, the Vintage Frames Shop has established themselves in the glasses, fashion and music world as a leader and pioneer of the vintage eye wear industry. It is with great pride that the Vintage Frames Shop has collaborated with such a highly respected and iconic eye wear enterprise like CAVIAR.

It was in the early 80’s that Caviar Collection was launched as the most elite eye wear brand to ever exist. With the extensive use of precious metals, gems, and wood, Caviar filled a void in the deluxe eye wear market that had never been met. Exotic woods were shortly after introduced into the market, adding yet another innovation to the eye wear industry.

With only fifty pairs of these sought-after frames, Vintage Frames Shop is once again proving why they are the number one purveyor in the Vintage eye wear industry. CAVIAR has exclusively co-branded with the Vintage Frames Shop to bring back to the fashionistas of the world this beautifully crafted frame. The versatility and luxury of this model is what made this sunglass into such an iconic piece of eye wear. Rose gradient lenses were chosen to compliment the rich color of the wood. The Vintage Frames Company recognized its historical importance to the music and fashion world and made it a priority to bring it back to life.

The Vintage Frames Shop x Caviar Exotic Wood Collection wood sunglass will be available exclusively at Vintage Frames Companies website – HERE.
