First established in 1970, the now iconic Linda Farrow luxury eyewear line was first made famous by stylish Londoners and members of the international jet-set.

Farrow was one of the very first designers to treat sunglasses as a fashion statement. Her tireless experimentation resulted in shapes and styles that are still popular today. Farrow was instrumental in developing Yoko Ono’s trademark styles.

40 years later, Farrow’s son, Simon Jablon rediscovered the design and introduced the Linda Farrow Vintage frames, which are comprised of three distinct collections, many of which feature precious metal, diamonds and gems. The Vintage Collection consists of 2,000 models, with some styles available limited editions.

Their collaborations with famous design houses continue today and include names like Giles Deacon, House of Holland, Dries Van Noten, Peter Pilotto, Yohji Yamomoto, Ponystep, ACNE, Basso & Brooke, Bernhard Willhelm, Buddhist Punk, Eley Kishimito, Jeremy Scott, Sophia Kokosalaki and Linda Farrow Vintage for Tsuba.
