  • Cazal Creations never specified if a design was for a man

    or woman; perhaps because many of the styles were worn

    by both. Especially the young in the early to mid-1980's in

    the US
    where Cazals or "Cazzies" were a craze, even among

    teenagers. Jamel Shabazz's photo from his book "Back in The

    Days", shows how 'unisex' these Cazal status symbols were -

    the frame on the left though, like this one, seems more a

    woman's frame. Perhaps it's the arched and upswept tops of

    the frames. This one is from the 100 Series which came out a

    little later and we are pleased to say is unworn. It even has its

    original Cazal demo blanks, which shows how effective the 168

    would be as glasses. The white on clear acetate frame becomes

    a neutral backdrop for that silhouette of applied lines of brightest

    red and the ornament of those triangles of gold metal and jade

    enamel at the corners. Imagine a red lipstick to match. Of course

    you could put in sunglass lenses or just keep in the blanks. It is all

    up to you, being the very first to own and wear this original 80's
