Persol, an Italian brand which has always been a hallmark of class and the highest quality is paying tribute to the world of photography with a unique collection: Persol Reflex Edition. Capturing beauty for over a century, cameras have made it possible to save endless images of the world which surrounds us and fix them in time and as the memories of generations. The same magic and poetry concealed behind the development of film finds expression in the uniquely Italian artisan production of every pair of Persol eyeglasses. Consisting for the first time of an optical model (PO 3044V) and two sunglasses models (PO 3046S and PO 3047S) featuring Polar and Photo-Polar lenses, Persol Reflex Edition is inspired by vintage-design analogue cameras reinterpreted using modern technology: a fascinating and modern cult object which has captured the memories of generations and reshaped history and the visual arts. Persol is available at OPSM.

I love the bold style choices of Natalie Joos, one of New York City’s finest Casting Directors. She’s become iconic for her unique sense of style, housing a vintage collection that rivals that of both Decades and Resurrection and being snapped regularly by Tommy Ton and Scott Schuman. Wouldn’t you love to play dress ups in her closet?

Catherine Baba is a Paris based Australian stylist who is the queen of bold statements. Baba is a street style favourite notorious for arriving at the Paris Fashion Week shows on a bicycle wearing the latest designer heels. Her love of vintage pieces acquired in flea markets means she is often seen in turbans, kimonos, catsuits, furs, arms full of bangles, long tassel earrings and 1930’s dresses. “This obsession with old clothes made my mother hysterical, especially since she spent her time sewing my conservative pretty dresses, but it is at garage sales in Sydney that I began to find my freedom” Catherine reflects. She especially adores Yves Saint Laurent and has a collection of over 300 vintage pieces. Baba has worked for Chanel, Givenchy, Balmain and Ungaro and is a freelance stylist and consultant for a number of fashion houses and designers. She has styled some amazing shoots for Dazed & Confused, Vanity Fair and many international editions of Vogue.

The many strings to Ece Sukan’s bow make her one of Istanbul’s contemporary trendsetters. Sukan has worked successfully as an actor, model, stylist, she has lectured at universities and is currently the Editor at Large for Vogue Turkey. Sukan commands attention for her clever mix of vintage pieces and runway looks. Her passion for vintage clothing led to her opening the first vintage boutique and organising the first vintage fashion show in Turkey.
