Fitzrovia is a dynamic, fashionable and trendy area of London, and London Retroâ€™s Fitzrovia perfectly embraces the dynamism, style and elegance of the area it takes its name from. Whether you love fashion or you are more of the â€˜I go for what I am comfortable inâ€™ type of person, Fitzrovia has a bit for both.
Round in shape, made from high specification acetate and using steel hinges, this super stylish frame is smart and casual at the same time, as well as comfortable. Itâ€™s a modern representation of vintage style, which can be seen both in its shape and material.
Fitzrovia is now available in 5 colours. Originally launched in June 2011 just in dark tortoise and tortoise, black/ crystal made its entrance in July 2013. Rose tortoise and marble followed in December 2014.Â There will be a sixth colour released soon, but we canâ€™t reveal too much, just stay tuned to find out.
The wide selection of colours satisfies every taste and style, just take a look…
Dark tortoise and pink, this warm and sophisticated colour confirms Fitzroviaâ€™s vintage soul. Tortoiseshell colours suit any hair colour and skin tone, but the darker shades of this frame would look great with light brown and blond hair.
Lighter shades define Fitzrovia tortoise, a colour that goes hand in hand with the pink detail of the frame, ideal if you are looking for glasses that light up your features.
â€˜Elegantâ€™ is what comes to mind when looking at Fitzrovia black/ crystal. The frame stands out without being too bold and itâ€™s definitely a modern look at retro style. If dark frames are what you generally go for, then donâ€™t miss this one.
Glamorous and romantic, Fitzrovia rose tortoise is a must-have frame if you like to stand out in style and are hunting for a great accessory that matches your most unique outfits.
Last but not least is Fitzrovia marble. Its colour is a perfect blend of brown, blue and black. This is a unique frame that screams elegance across all of its shades.
And now you must be wondering what (or who?) inspired the shape of this frame…
Well, vintage fashion of course, as well as the idea of these glasses being a tribute to movie star Johnny Depp; many of our London Retroâ€™s frames, such as Reggie and Sweeney, are in fact tributes to showbiz stars.
A bit of technical info to end with…
