The August 2012 edition of W Magazine features apparel designer Haider Ackermann. His own antique spectacles are evocative of a more romantic epoch. Sometimes a subtle expression makes a larger impression than a brash statement, such as the thick acetate frames which dominate the market at the moment. My own vintage Oliver Peoples frame is shown here with an image of the designer and actress Tilda Swinton by photographer Solve Sundsbo.
Frames of like virtue, which are currently available at our stores, are depicted below. Shown are styles produced by Oliver Peoples, Lunor and Anne et Valentin.
