Retro Eyeglasses for the Masses

We believe that your eyes deserve more than just neutral-colored frames.

PRLog - Nov. 13, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- New York City in the 1990’s was still the never sleeping metropolis of excitement and vibrancy, but according to optical entrepreneur, Michael Zargari, this vibrancy didn’t materialize to its citizen’s eyewear.  Despite being in the fashion capital of North America, most New Yorkers were relegated to buying conservative frames with neutral-colors, void of any awe or real color.  

It was business as usual for Zargari’s Upper Eastside optical shop, Michael’s Optical, he was pumping out the usual inventory of eyewear, including heavy doses of grey, brown and black frames.  Then he visited Italy, and it all changed.  

The town of Belluna, 200 east of Milan, was where it all clicked for Zargari.  As he'd seen on his entire Italian trip, he noticed that Italians dressed more colorfully, including their eyeglass frames.  He worked alongside optical designer “Mr. Pinto” and learned some of his frame coloring techniques before purchasing 3,000 of his creations for sale back in NYC.  It was lucrative -- they flew off the shelf.  

After 17 years of running Michael’s Optical, Zargari decided that more than Manhattan deserved his colorful, durable, affordable frames.  He has since sold his storefront and will be launching Retroeyeworks.com in Fall 2012 in time for the holidays.
