Vintage Retail Spotlight: Lunettes Selection, Berlin


Lunettes Selection, Torstrasse 172, Berlin 10115.

With two retail outposts in Berlin, an online e-shop, and a rental service available for costumers and stylists, Lunettes Selection is fast becoming a destination for vintage eyewear aficionados and enthusiasts and a reputable stockist of original and authentic current labels from Ralph Vaessen to Oliver Goldsmith.  The impressive vintage selection features “new,” never-been-worn old stock from 1900 to today, with pieces by some of Europe’s most beloved eyewear designers (Emmanuelle Khahn, anyone?) and global manufacturers.  Iconic shapes and styles abound, from 50s horn rim or browline styles to wayfarers, aviators, mod ‘Jackie O.’  shapes and more.  And if you can’t find a vintage pair that suits you, Lunettes Selection also produces a private label line, Lunettes Kollektion, of straightforward classics for men and women in high quality materials, hand-made in Austria and Italy. Since 2009.

Below, a selection of shop portraits, current Lunettes Kollektion frames available, and our favorite vintage styles from Lunettes Selection.  Swing by this eyewear behemoth in person or online and leave with a healthy dose of retro swerve and style.
