Vintage Eyewear at ABnG Store

I am vintage addict. When I am traveling I  have to stop by vintage stores to look for some unique accessories or clothes to add a beautiful touch to my outfits. Vintage sunglasses have always had a special place in my heart as well.  So I was so happy to know that the vintage eye wear collector Tarek Al Sallab has launched some of his collection at ABnG store. The collection is from the 20s to 90s, you can actually find a lot of brands, which will be changed according to whatever Tarek, finds by his (haunting for vintage) trips. Tarek is the only retailler of the famous German brand CAZAL in Egypt, which was worn by many celebrities and important persons. The Cazal collection is the only one which decided to reproduce from their previous collection since the high demand.

How to know whether a vintage pair of sunglasses is authentic or a cheap replica?
At that time there was no replicas. You can know a good pair by its weight, whether or not it is handmade and the gold plated. 
From where do you collect your sunglasses? I traveled to around 26 countries to find the perfect pairs, I  have a collection of about 50 thousand pair that I got from either old distributors or handpicked at the original factory.
What is the price range? Vintage pieces are cheaper than today's models. But of course some pieces can go up to 15,000 EGP like  the Cartier, and some of the silver plated can go to 7,000 EGP

Tarek believes that trends come back since everything is re-wearable. Most popular one are Cazal, Cartier and Emanuel Kahn. Emanuel Kahn pieces are entirely handmade, and you can see that the lines or curves are not precise and not perfectly straight.Tarek doesn’t believe that you should wear the shape that is trendy, its your personality that makes the look while you are wearing it.
