Matudsa Eyewear, Matsuda Eyeglasses & Matsuda Sunglasses
Matsuda Eyewear Profile: Long before the fashion houses of Paris, New York and Milan entered the designer eyewear and accessories market, there was Matsuda. For nearly three decades, the "Matsuda" name was synonymous with artisan, luxury eyewear and sunglasses.
One of the first luxury eyewear brands to be licensed and distributed by the legendary Optical Shop of Aspen (OSA), Matsuda eyewear was one of OSA's early flagship brands and top-sellers through the late 1980s and 1990s.
Matsuda Today: Highly Collectible
The buzz around Matsuda eyewear was only enhanced when a pair of Matsuda 2809 sunglasses (actually goggles) made an appearance on Linda Hamilton in the 1991 blockbuster "Terminator 2." Today, the Matsuda 2809 sunglasses from "Terminator 2" can fetch up to $1,000 dollars on the vintage market.
Many eyewear connoisseurs consider Matsuda to be one of the most influential eyewear designers in history, and his frames and sunglasses continue attract a loyal following.
Optical Shop of Aspen no longer distributes Matsuda eyewear, so devotees of these exceptional frames and sunglasses in the U.S. have been left high-and-dry without a source for this fantastic eyewear. Mitshiro Matsuda passed away in 2008, leaving the future of the Matsuda line hazy and making these beautiful, artsy frames even more rare and desirable.
