At the beginning of the month we shared with you a few visual gems from the London Retro Metropolitan campaign, showcasing some of our favourite frames from the AW13 collection.

Shot within the walls of the quirky and rather humongous warehouse that is also used to film ‘Dragon’s Den’, the creative team behind London Retro’s ‘Metropolitan’ collection spent the day shooting with models Olivier and Christy from Nevs to produce a beautiful and urban tale of vintage inspired style with modern day sophistication.


Inspired by one of London’s most iconic landmarks, the London Underground, the Metropolitan collection consists of 17 directional styles. Each style is named after a tube line or station that has inspired the London Retro design team whilst designing the collection.

Merging retro shapes with this season’s key colour palettes and fabrication trends, the collection holds a plethora of silhouettes to meet the needs of every face shape.

Matt finishes reflect the growing influence of texture, while subtle colourways like muted pinks are introduced for the first time. The collection also features more metal frames than previously.

There are 17 styles, each in two colourways, all priced at £79. At the same time new colours have been added to the seven best selling styles in the range.
