Why the ’70s Were the Best Era for Eyewear
The ’60s had their distinctive mod styles and flower child sunnies. The ’80s? Wacky and sci--influenced. The ’90s saw micro shades. But it’s the tawny, oversized sunglasses of the ’70s that have truly stood the test of time. Why? Because they work on most of us, regardless of our face shape or what we wear. And TOM FORD recognises that with his latest collection of “vintage”, ’70s-style aviators and Jackie Os.
A TOM FORD signature: the T logo on every pair of eyewear. From top: Sabine Sunglasses, $790; Lennon Sunglasses, $600; Emanuella-02 Sunglasses, $660; and Marissa Sunglasses, $840.
