I think the Frame rocks in both colors and the gold on the Top of them is the shit and makes this almost normel frame to something real special. For the quality there is no more to say as ZEISS!!!
I think you all remeber my first special about my alltime fav. sunglasses the Alpina M1!!!
Today its time for the 2nd Special and this time its not about a COOL FRAME that everybody loves, no, its about a COOL GUY that everybody loves. STEVE WONDER was born in 1950 and is known all over the World as a great musician. His first recored was recorded in 1962 so he only was 12 years old and since this time there was no stopping for him as musican and componist. But thats not the only reason im posting this here, you all gone know, it about his style of shades he is wearing the 70′s and 80′s.
I really was suprised when i was searching for photos what kind of styles he was rocking. Some of them is well known and i can easely name them but there are a lot i dident could identify. Maybe one of you can tell me a frame so i could expend my knowledge about vintage frames.
Thanks for yourt help, just leave a comment or drop me a mail.

Yoko One (espacilly on the rolling stone cover from the 1st Oct 1981).
And Corey form the VintageFramesCompany decided, that its a Creme de la Creme Frame!!!
Now i call them my own in a 3rd colorway and as a surf-version. I was wondering if the Grey one is a Surf or not. Anyway in white they are the Best!!!
Those Alpinas are f…… HUGE!!! They have about the size of the Porsche Design 5620.
They are just great, what do you think?
The F-27 S is a folding Model with a Red/Brown and golden Frame made out of plastic and metal. They are not that HUGE and they have a really classic typ of shape. The best detail on this great Vintage Eyewear is the Horse, it stays in the middle even if you fold the whole frame together.
Its a Alpina M1/8 as far as i learned it was only made cause of an anniversary of the Alpina Company and only gave away to spacial shopholder or customers…i dont know if its the truth but they are really rare so it sounds like it could be.
I know three colorways of the M1/8. The White, the Black and the Golden one, all 3 have the tortoise decor as you cann see on the white one. These are really really ill!!!
Dunhill Shades are very hard to find these days and i think its because they are really one of the best vintage brands ever. The Dunhill 6069 are one of the coolest i have ever found since i started collecting vintage shades. With the square Lenses they look classic and high class. i love the combo out of the optyl-made frame and the gold metal right next to the lenses.
