Wilde Vintage Sunglasses

It started over a year ago when a dainty vintage shop in Barcelona, Spain sparked all kinds of excitement with their unique one-of-a-kind vintage treasures: sunglasses. Owned by a man who spent years of his life in Venezuela, Mexico, Miami and now Barcelona, Cao tells fashion journalist Raquel Alfonso that it all started with his passion to collect vintage sunglasses. Over several years Cao collected models from various auctions and shops with unsold stocks in Paris, London and the United States.

Eventually Cao’s passion evolved into a project he called WildeVintage, “A New Generation Vintage Shop.” The Barcelona shop stocks models from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s as well as new vintage specs.

Time over time the Pied-Pieper of extraordinary vintage sunglasses went from collector to creator now owning his own line, “The Black Oscar Sunglasses by Wilde.”

The man has inspired us!
