For the past four years, the Lunettes boutique in Berlin has been a great source for 20th Century unworn vintage eyewear. The Lunettes Kollektion is the famed shop’s in-house brand which features shapes and designs reminiscent of vintage frames with a generous dab of the very individual sub-culture that defines Berlin style. Each design is carefully produced by small family-run factories in Italy and Austria, using traditional methods of frame production. All frames come in exclusive packaging inspired by soap and chocolate boxes of the roaring 1920s.
Uta Geyer, head of Lunettes, tells us her and her team are extremely environmentally conscious as well, so to reduce their carbon footprint while supporting their local communities, Lunettes works with small local firms instead of mass production facilities. Berlin book bindery Ernst Lies (Est. 1869) creates the handcrafted cases that accompany each frame.
