The Roth Revival
It wasn’t just records—whatever Kurt Cobain wore won cult status. (Just think of the generation of kids he introduced to Daniel Johnston with his famous “Hi, How Are You” T-shirt.) And now, for those who missed them the first time around, Jordan Silver of the excellent Silver Lining Vintage—Jay-Z’s preferred vintage-sunglass dealer, not to mention Bergdorf Goodman’s—is reissuing the Christian Roth specs that Cobain made famous, in a new collaboration with Opening Ceremony. Silver supplied deadstock Roth frames (including the cat-eyes the Nirvana frontman preferred) kitted out with new lenses, in tortoise-print and violet-lensed versions ($450, available at OpeningCeremony.us). Kurt wears his (left) alongside some woman you may recognize if you hit a party or two in 2010.
