A blast from the past, when it comes to the amazing eyewear on display as well as the antiquity of this event, which was created by TEF four years ago at 100% Optical. TEF didn’t even really have a website back then, so this event never really got shown online, but the frames that vintage eyewear collector Robbin Palmen brought with him at that event are just to breathtaking to not show to you guys!
First of all, we were so pleased with how MediaTen, the organisers of 100%optical, understood our concept and helped us to create this booth looking even better than our original renderings, and Optical Marketing Group for supplying their little three stands.
And of course, collector Robbin who flew in from Amsterdam (under massive insurance) along with just a small part of his collection, which was still hundreds of beautiful vintage frame designs that caught everyone’s attention at the show!
Vintage designs by Lanvin, Philippe Chevallier, Patrick Kelly and Pierre Cardin.
Vintage designs by Anglo American Eyewear, Pucci, Courreges, Stendhal, Robert la Roche and Valentino.

Vintage designs by Paloma Picasso , Alain Mikli, Paloma Picasso, Gianni Versace, Casanova, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Neostyle, Alitalia, Christian Dior Monsieur, Nina Ricci, Emmanuelle Khahn, Claudia Carlotti, and Hans Winkel Design.
I love all this unique vintage frame designs and the mark they left on current collections! Can’t wait to see the world get back to normal and shows actually happening again to show you guys more of these wonderful pieces of art!
TEF Vintage Expo shall return! Somewhere in time!
