Where to Get Real Vintage Sunglasses

I found these vintage Dior Retro Rounds sunglasses at Barneys New York and noticed that they were made by brand Retrosun.  How are vintage Diors made by a different brand?  Retrosun was started by Nicole Miller in 2005 after she discovered a warehouse filled with backstock of authentic vintage designer sunglasses.  Now the brand finds designers’ stock from around the world and sells gorgeous vintage sunglasses from the 1970s and 1980s.

I am loving all of the vintage-inspired sunglass styles that are popular this summer, but it would be even more amazing to get my hands on the real piece of history!  Maybe I have discovered Nicole Richie’s secret to always having the most amazing vintage styles.

Here are some great vintage sunglasses from Retrosun:

Vintage Vienna Sunglasses in Pale Honey $265

I love these delicate metal frames in soft summer hues.  The round lenses are a distinct vintage style that is popping up everywhere.

Vintage Dior Retro Rounds in Dark Wine $265

This is another beautiful round lens with a delicate metal frame.  I love the 1970s style with the tortoise shell and thin gold details.

Retro Sun Vintage Christian Dior $270

Sometimes I like the vintage look where you can kind of imagine your Grandma wearing it, but it is also ridiculously fashionable.  That’s how I feel about these rose-tinted oversized sunglasses with red acetate frames.
