We spotted fellow eyewear lover Jeroen first when we visited Antwerp and ran into him again in Paris. He’s one half of Belgian eyewear site Eyeful and we photographed him wearing vintage Theo frames, from the Belgian-company’s 1989 collaboration with Conrad David Bolssens, an Antwerp fashion designer. (Rumour has it, Theo made these frames specifically for Conrad’s fashion school graduation collection, after he contacted the brand for ideas).
Jeroen found this frame in the basement of the Theo headquarters, during a visit many years ago. Due to his smaller pupillary distance (PD), Jeroen is usually quite picky when it comes to finding frames that fit his eyes. These ones fit perfectly. The unique pattern helps too, with a combination of black and brown layering and gold dots on the sides. Truly a one-of-a-kind pair!
