When you enter the town through the doors of Keleti Trainstation its cold in Budapest at the moment. After some minutes walk you reach the old jewish district of the city. In this urban district you find the vintage stores Retrock , Ludovika Vintage and many others, Budapest has never been a player in the vintage frame game. The chance to get in touch with great frames is to visit the store of the legendary 101 year old optician woman and listen to her stories what has happend in Budapest since WWI.
For some new frame inspiration you can search the showroom of Vinylize near the Danube in the old Town. In their small manufactory Mr.Tipton produces interesting frames using your favorit vinyl record from the past.
Another cool inspiration is to ride the Budapest Subway Lines, watch the great architecture of the line M4 and finally get the M2 line to reach the Falk Miska Street to visit the antique stores like our favorite STUDIO AGRAM and find great Design treasures from the modernists of the last century.
After the relaunch of the brand Serge Kirchhofer at this years Silmo 2016 in Paris the new website of the Austrian design legend UDO PROKSCH is also online. Great mood fotos of the past with a forecast of upcoming frame releases make a perfect introduction of the surreal world that is comming in the next month.
2016 was the comeback of round metal sunglasses, straight lines and flat lenses. What will happen next year 2017, can we see a comeback of the massive butterfly eyewear 70s Style like Atelier, the neo romantic metal details of the avantgarde frames of Serge Kirchhofer.
Or the all time classic avitor look of the BOEING Collection by CARRERA. Or will be the Aviator world turned arround. We will be wondering what the great fairs SILMO Paris or OPTI Munich show at the exhibitions and if the Designers have found some new lines or reinterpret the design ideas of the last centuries.
