Our frames come from our worldwide travels and are hand picked by our knowledgeable fashion historian staff. All of our frames are original unworn 50′s to 80′s brand name glasses. Our staff works closely with artists and trendsetters alike to revive styles once popular in those times. Our shopping experience is unique, as clients get a personal stylist for their eyes as well as a history lesson helping them understand the background and craftsmanship of their chosen frame. Our brands include Cazal, Neostyle, Dior, Persol, Ray-Ban, Porsche, Dunhill, Gucci, Laura Biagiotti and many more.
Besides selling and placing our vintage jewels, our services includes design consultations that many of today's leading designers have had the pleasure to use. By working with our staff, we guide many of the designers from today's top selling current brands through a historical look at eye wear’s past. From this, many elements of past iconic styles are used as the basis of newly produced eyewear. It is for this reason that most of the glasses on the market today have a vintage feel to them.
Even though our company operates on a global scale, we have chosen Montréal to call our home. Our showroom, L'Archive, is open during select hours. We have specially curated the boutique to highlight some of the best frames of our collection and to be able to offer a wide selection of different styles. We also offer private appointments to be able to cater to all needs for eyewear enthusiasts. To contact a member of our style team. please call our head office at 1-800-930-6745
