We take a exclusive first look at the complete Michael Bastian x Randolph Engineering eyewear collection for 2012, previewed in the video below not too long ago. The eyewear collection features both sunglasses and eyeglasses with clip-on sunglasses – most inspired by Randolph’s back catalog of vintage frames.
Metal aviators are what Randolph is known for and Mr. Bastian’s selections from their archives are strong. As with all metal Randolph frames, they are all made locally in Randolph, MA – the city which the eyemaker takes its name.
Of particular note, are four acetate frames – the first acetate frames from Randolph since the 1970’s – produced in Italy with Mazzuchelli acetate. Clip-on sunglasses are available for select Bastian x Randolph acetates. The collection delivers this May through better Bastian retailers.
