Our most recent arrivals of  Matsuda sunglasses evoke the elegant trappings of the  fin-de-siècle.  In an era were  the visual arts and literature favored artifice over nature and sophistication over simplicity, curious and unconventional forms emerged.

    If we could transport these frames back to  the late nineteenth century they would have been appreciated  then as surely as they are now.  One could anticipate the decay of social order in true Gothic style while adorned by these marvels of intricate detail and refinement.  These fascinating indulgences are currently available at our flagship location.
