Today Selfridges has launched BRIGHT OLD THINGS, a new spin on its now well-established Bright Young Thing talent showcase, which will this time focus on 14 older creatives from the worlds of fashion, music, design and art, giving them all a dedicated window on Oxford Street until the end of February.
Robert Roope, founder and designer of Black Eyewear, has been shortlisted and has for the occasion created 2 new frames available exclusively at Selfridges: Webster for men and Blossom for women. Both frames as per all Black Eyewear designs, are named after great jazz musicians.
Blossom (right: RED) – This frame is dedicated to jazz great Blossom Dearie (1924-2009), singer and pianist. Known for her distinctive light breathy voice she lived for some time in Paris where she shared a room with Annie Ross.
Both Webster and Blossom frames come in a variety of colours
