New York-based eyewear brand, Vint & York has teamed up with the historic Smithsonian museum to bring us a chic capsule collection of both sunglasses and eyeglasses. “The Time Capsule” collection, which is inspired by past Smithsonian exhibits, tells the story of treasured artifacts dating back to the mid-1900s.
“We were not only inspired by the allure of nostalgia, but by the character of these objects. The Smithsonian has some of the most iconic cultural pieces, a vast collection of historical touchstones, and rare oddities. It was a designer’s dream,” Larisa Ginzburg, VINT & YORK’s Founder, stated in the brand's press release.
