There’s nothing cooler than a great pair of shades—except for a great pair of vintage shades. Whether it’s aviator-inspired Porsche frames with gradient lenses to a Jackie O-style tortoise shell model from Ferre, vintage frames confer instant cool. Think Jean-Paul Belmondo in Breathless. Or Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Or even Paloma Picasso wearing a monocle in a Helmut Newton photo. It’s images like this—not to mention the craftsmanship, artistry and top-notch materials of vintage designer frames—that inspired Kajal Sanghrajka, who grew up in the eyewear industry, to launch EbK Eyewear, a collection of unworn, pristine frames from the 1970s through 1990s. “Every vintage design stands out and transforms your look whether it’s a luxury Christian Dior or a handmade Italian Maga frame,” she says.
