The fashion world is a constant resurge of past trends and style notes making their way back into the spotlight. Eyewear is seeing smaller frames and more classic looks heading to the faces of eyewear lovers. This is especially true for GenEYE, taking cues from the past and opting for retro and vintage looks. We’ve gone old school with a classic black and white photo shoot that highlights old school style with new school Millennials.
