The Mod Nod

Vintage-inspired frames are the perfect seasonless accessory.

 

IF EYES ARE THE WINDOWS TO THE SOUL, then fashionable eyewear certainly plays a pivotal role in securing a memorable first impression. The newest rounds of retro specs found on everyone from Johnny Depp to the neighborhood hipster go well beyond the Wayfarer. From D-frames and aviators to round-framed options reminiscent of the ’20s and ’30s, nostalgic details are in abundance, setting each pair apart from the next. Think of it as a new-aged Buddy Holly, less clunky and heavy than the choices in seasons past. Tasteful tortoiseshell and tones of rich chocolate have replaced basic black in top lines, including Matsuda and David Yurman. The perfect mix of dapper and delicate, the new classes of frames are built to last, crafted with high-grade materials that include sturdy Bakelite and titanium. Bottom line: Don’t be afraid to channel your inner “Depp.” After all, a classy gent is always in style.
