Vintage Street Scene: Mod Eyewear

The Mod era emerges as a key reference for F/W 12 eyewear, evoking the birds of Carnaby Street in styles that go from round to angular in every conceivable material and color.


Following the 30s-inspired eyewear that dominated both runways and streets in recent seasons, the Mod era emerged as a key reference for F/W 12 frames, evoking the birds of Carnaby Street in styles that went from round to angular in every conceivable material and color.  A perfect pair to the wildly patterned Mod hosiery seen stomping down runways.  Below, a series of our favorite street looks, accompanied by similar styles available now via Etsy.
