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.
