Tickle the ivories, appreciate vintage photography and hobnob with stylists scrounging for throwback eyewear. Hotel De Ville Vintage Eyewear is the place to go optically old-school, boasting an inpressive deadstock selection. The boutique caters to the retro connoisseur with a range of 20th century orginial models including couture runway pieces.
"Customers can expect to want to try on every frame in the shop, and will definitely feel transported to another time, " professes Eva Kant, HDV director of communications.
The basic black opthalmic frame and cat eye will always be mainstays, but the dramatic 70s designs are hot commodities. "There is a lot of draw to 80s frames as well, especially masculine styles, the rounds, for both men and women, " Kant explains.
Rest assured you'll pick up a treasured pair since the shops cater to fit and fuction as much as to style. If you're looking to converse about Cazal, just touch base with a Hotel De Ville Optician. These spec-historians will be happy to engage.

So we dance, to an ice-cold frenzied rhythm, to short waves and long waves, a dance on the inside of the cup of nothingness, each centimeter of lust running to dollars and cents. We taxi from one perfect female to another seeking the vulnerable defect, but they are flawless and impermeable in their impeccable lunar consistency.
This is the icy white maidenhead of love's logic, the web of the ebbed tide, the fringe of absolute vacuity. And on this fringe of the virginal logic of perfection I am dancing the soul dance of white desperation, the last white man pulling the trigger on the last emotion, the gorilla of despair beating his breast with immaculate gloved paws. I am the gorilla who feels his wings growing, a giddy gorilla in the center of a satin-like emptiness; the night too grows like an electrical plant, shooting white-hot buds into velvet black space. I am the black space of the night in which the buds break with anguish, a starfish swimming on the frozen dew of the moon.
I am the germ of a new insanity, a freak dressed in intelligible language, a sob that is buried like a splinter in the quick of the soul. I am dancing the very sane and lovely dance of the nostalgic gorilla. These are my brothers and sisters who are insane and unangelic. We are dancing in the hollow of the cup of nothingness. We are of one flesh, but separated like stars.

Known rather for his romantic misadventures than for any leadership skills, Carol was first married to "Zizi" Lambrino, daughter of a Romanian general; and the marriage was annulled by decision of the Ilfov Tribunal in 1919. He next married Princess Helen of Greece and Denmark, but the marriage soon collapsed in the wake of Carol's affair with Elena "Magda" Lupescu , the daughter of a Jewish pharmacist and his Roman Catholic wife. As a result of the scandal, he renounced his right to the throne in December of 1925 in favour of his son who became King in July of 1927. Carol also had a son and a daughter by his mistress Maria Martini, a high-school student. Returning to the country unexpectedly on June 7, 1930, Carol reneged on the renunciation and was proclaimed King the following day.
