Established in 1970, the Linda Farrow brand of luxury eyewear rose quickly to acclaim amongst style savvy international jet setters. Originally a fashion designer, Linda Farrow was one of the first to treat sunglasses as a high-fashion accessory.
In April 2003 Linda Farrow Vintage was re-launched. Simon Jablon, son of 70's designer, Linda, and now Creative Director, stumbled across a generous stash of original 70's & 80's sunglasses in their London Islington warehouse such as Vintage Pucci, Vintage Sonia Rykiel and his mother's own brand, Linda Farrow. Linda Farrow Vintage returned with vengeance to reclaim their rightful position consisting over 2000 different designs all in pristine condition, ranging from one-off pieces to 500 per style. All in their original packaging, Jablon decided to launch Linda Farrow Vintage and sell his retro specs to exclusive retailers world-wide.
Linda Farrow Vintage has gained global recognition with their unprecedented range of vintage sunglasses ; the brand has become an embodiment for originality and flair. Following a highly selective distribution policy, Linda Farrow Vintage and it's collaborations are stocked by over 700 of the best designer retailers and department stores world wide. Stockists include Selfridges and Browns in London, Le Bon Marche, Colette and Lï¿½Eclaireur in Paris, 10 Corso Como in Milan, Quartier 206 in Berlin and Loveless in Tokyo. Linda Farrow Gallery boutiques are selectively placed in Harrods-London, Printemps- Paris, Joyce- Hong Kong, Villa Moda- Dubai, Harvey Nichols- Istanbul with an additional four opening in 2007.
