A new dimension of retro vintage eyewear has just reached Eyeland Framemakers.
Unrestricted. Youthful. Edgy. Introducing FUNK Food Eyewear, we feed your face.
Sara – our head honcho, frame maker and licensed optician, visited an optical show in the heart of beautiful Munich, earlier this year. The International Trade Show for Optics and Design, Opti, turned out to be an amazing destination to further our quest for inspirational, retro vintage eyewear. In awe of the brands edgy shapes, fun colour combinations and youthful energy – we knew FUNK would a perfect addition to our already distinct lineup of eyewear collections.
Retro Vintage Eyewear: FUNK-y Meets Fresh
FUNK is one of very few, small, independent spectacle labels in the world. Founded back in 1992 by the eponymous label founder and designer, Dieter Funk, the brand is proud to produce eyewear that is free from conformity and labels.
FUNK FACT: FUNK eyewear names all of their frames after food, which is probably the only thing we love more than unique eyewear! This distinct feature has inspired their slogan, ‘we feed your face’. How delicious!
FUNK currently has four stores in Germany, with a new location to open in, arguably, the of the fashion capital of the world ….. (drumroll,please!)…. Paris, France. With the ultimate goal of harmonizing modern design with retro vintage eyewear features, the brand has been targeting top fashion-forward hot spots around Europe.
