Island Company®

Vintage Eyewear

A look at Island Company's® line of high-end eyewear

Known for its subtly retro spins on classic Americana meets Caribe-Exotic inspired travel apparel, Island Company® is rapidly expanding, opening a store in East Hampton, adding a jewelry line, and most recently; eyewear. With six freestanding branded stores, complete men’s and women’s resort wear and swimwear collections, suncare and jewelry lines; eyewear was a necessary next step. These new divisions of the lifestyle brand have added to Island Company’s reputation as a ‘tropical lifestyle outfitter.’

A classic reinvented in a unique glass frame combination

Island Company’s® Founder and Creative Director Spencer Antle; “It’s been fun to create these new extensions of Island Company®. Everyone thinks I licensed all this out. But both the eyewear and the suncare were 100% designed and developed here. It’s been a lot of fun and incredibly successful.”

The frames are handmade in Italy using local raw materials and the frames are

made with Mazzucchelli, the highest quality frame material in the world. The construction has a superior fit and finish, heavy-duty hinges, and use only glass Pilinkington crystal lenses.

“The eyewear is designed to continue Island Company’s® dedication to classic, yet modern travel apparel.”

This is a product of my love for the islands and my life traveling through them,” says Antle. I’m not selling a brand that I created because I thought it was trendy. I’m branding my life. I take it very seriously. Each item is a result of careful thought as to what our customers need.”

All nine sunglass styles were designed within Island Company®. They merge modern fashion with vintage classic; an Island Company® trait the company has become known for. “Customers would constantly come into the stores and ask for sunglasses. So we found a factory outside of Venice, Italy and I got to it. I’m incredibly pleased with them.” From Island Essential, New England Prep and Exotic Europe — escapism emanates throughout the collection.
