Corey Shapiro is the larger than life figure behind Vintage Frames.
Not a typical businessman in any sense of the word, Corey Shapiro makes his living travelling the world, selling rare and collectible eyewear. You might recognize Corey by his signature MCM luggage kit, or oversized glasses perched underneath the hat brim that more-often-than-not has a Montblanc pen clipped on purposefully. You also may have caught Shapiro on a recent episode of GQ’s Most Expensivest Shit showing a pair of diamond-encrusted, $50,000 shades to 2 Chainz. When he’s not jet-setting, Shapiro stays busy by cooking up collaborative eyewear with the likes of Fabolousand Metro Boomin.
Corey’s personal brand and his approach to business have cemented him as somewhat of an institution in hip-hop and in the music industry in general, and he’s famously outfitted a spread of celebrity names including YesJulz, Lady Gaga, Amber Rose, Rick Ross. We hit Corey up with some questions to get to know his business and lifestyle a bit better.
Corey Shapiro is the owner of Vintage Frames Company. Vintage Frames Company is the world’s largest purveyors of designer vintage sunglasses and eyewear. The company resides in St-Henri Montreal, right down the street from our barbershop; Notorious. I am the owner, operator, janitor, and purveyor of fine goods all at the same time. I’m rather well known for my renegade, in-your-face business antics, mixed by out-of-the box entrepreneurial experiments.
