Victory Optical Vintage Eyeglass Frames.
The Victory Optical Collection revives a line of classic American eyewear designs that have been in the same family for four generations. In 1941, company founder Vincent J. Salierno debuted his first collection of Victory eyewear; the early designs launched the company's reputation for innovation, quality and a design sense that appealed to individuals such as Buddy Holly, Dean Martin, Connie Francis, Phil Silvers, Jerry Lewis and other figures in politics, entertainment and fashion.
The company will faithfully reproduce the most successful optical designs from the 1940s, '50s, '60s and '70s in its Victory Heritage collection. A second line of optical frames inspired by the original designs will become the Victory Inspired collection. Victory also has a line of Suntimers sunglasses.
Vincent Salierno was generous with his time and success, and he was active in local civic organizations and sponsored an orphanage and hospital in Italy. After his death, The Vincent Salierno Scholarship was set up through the American Optometric Foundation and the American Academy of Optometry. Over one hundred deserving optometric students have benefitted.
