Fighting Unoriginality For Three Decades
There was a time when eyewear design was bold. And inspiring. Today however, designers are pressured to design for the masses to maximize profits resulting in monotonous, look-alike styles.
Bucking this trend for three decades, Fabulous Fanny’s has always been dedicated to fighting unoriginality. We search the world for the most unique vintage eyewear whose designs not only stand out, they stand the test of time.
Some are classics, some are truly counterculture, but all are authentic. And given that their quality is just as remarkable today as it was in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, it’s a testament to true craftsmanship.
Inspired by history’s most famous eyewear, Fabulous Fanny’s also meticulously re-creates the classics drawing from that same mastery. With modern colors and designs, we make the classics even better - using virgin stainless steel and the world’s finest acetates. Made from natural cotton fibers, we barrel-tumble and hand-polish all of our frames for an exceptional lustre and feel.
The result is time-honored, iconic eyewear each with its own story to tell.
If you’re like us and you rank individuality well-above fitting-in, Fabulous Fanny’s is here to help express your true character.
Whether you find your fabulous in our East Village store or discover our designs in one of special independent eyewear partners, the last thing you’ll ever be accused of is being unoriginal.
Barrel-cured for a perfect finish.
Each Fabulous Fanny’s frame is cured in a special bath, submerged in a wine-type barrel with our “magic” solution & wood chips for up to 3 days. This process gives each frame the extra strength and shine that will last years.
The best materials from around the world.
Our metal components are European quality and made from a combination of the world’s best materials, including monel screws, virgin stainless steel hinges and titanium nose pads.
All of our Classic Reproductions and most of our Original Vintage are optical quality and fits any sunglass or prescription lenses.
