  • Tura are an American company, established in 1938 and still going today.

    From their start on Madison Avenue, New York, they were about luxury,

    innovation and fashion. The name Tura comes from the Futura mirror.

    By the 1950's they were using modern materials like aluminium for their

    frames: the women's designs like couture, accessorised with jewelled

    decorations; the men's with leather and complemented by matching

    cufflinks. Tura advertised in Vogue, always appealing to the fashion-

    conscious, introducing new designs and leading for luxury eyewear. In the

    1980's they were still at the top, and given their reputation for metal

    frames, they went all the way to Japan to manufacture this amazing line.

    It's large but slim, appearing even thinner by being highly polished. Note

    the subtle detail where rimless sections let the lenses 'disappear' to

    accentuate that 'T' shape in polished and matt silver on the double bridge.

    The same ridged effect runs down the arms. They have their original

    demonstration lenses which will need changing. You might want to copy

    that gradient tint and in the same pale pinkish colour but of course, that's

    where you get to make your choices and take out this Tura for the very

    first time.
