Randolph, an independently owned eyewear company, has opened the curtains for their newest homage to Haitian pilots in time for Veterans Day. The brand has partnered with The Brooklyn Circus for a collaboration tailored to men taking their inspiration directly from the fruitful narratives within history. With a rooted tie to culture, The Brooklyn Circus partially steps away from its clothing-oriented pieces to tell a story through glasses alongside their usual pieces, such as jackets and other accessories.

Ouigi Theodore, founder and Haitian-born creative director of The Brooklyn Circus, shares the emotional and personal connection of Haitian pilots who were a part of the Tuskegee Airmen and served in the United States Army during World War II. The pilots, hidden with history, are exemplified by the collaboration alongside striking styles that host themes of courage and prosperity. The Brooklyn Circus varsity jacket, a warm brown bomber jacket with undertones of cream and orange, is a homage to the pilots with a patch.

The propellers and wings tie in the piece while keeping its hospitality alongside the historical connection. The Randolph P-51 glasses allow for a subtle fancy feel, coming in different sleek colors such as black, light brown, and gray. The lens changes as well with different colored tints in the same color wave. The arms of the glasses hold a calming engraving of clouds, symbolizing flight and the freedom held within the glasses.

Randolph and The Brooklyn Circus allow their pieces to clutch the truth of history whilst allowing a calm feeling. Each piece welcomes its wearer while allowing the person to embellish in honor of historical accomplishments. This release also stores aviators that resemble a flight goggle design coming in the same colors, alongside olive green. A scarf, in only a color scheme of black and white, compliments the other pieces beautifully.

The racial discrimination faced by the Haitian pilots during the dreadful World War II wasn’t an easy task, but their rigor and armored structure allowed them to disperse adversity and become heroes of the world. In honor of their relentless fight, physically and mentally, the Randolph collaboration with The Brooklyn Circus offers another chance for our icons to reinvent their strength through this calm but focused style of apparel. Offering a similar feeling to anyone who wears these glasses, jacket, or scarf and allowing them to attach these qualities to themselves.
