  • A superb example of early 1960's sunglasses

    design. The shape is a wrapped wide sided

    cateye - very popular around 1962-3 for both

    men and women - but it is the plastic that grabs

    your attention. The colour is a gold layer on

    black and is smooth at the bridge but is feathered

    around the eyepieces leading to the even more

    fabulously decorative sides. Here the silver raised

    abstract squiggles are cut back to the black

    layer beneath and then studded with coloured

    rhinestones. Glorious, gorgeous, glamourous.
