Description
The 20th century marked a turning point in eyewear design, fueled by a rapidly changing social and cultural landscape, new manufacturing techniques, the development of innovative materials, and the entertainment industry. Eyeglasses—once purely functional—have been transformed into a fashion accessory. This book is based on Simon Murray's spectacular collection of eyewear (it had to be said), and is photographed much like a catalogue of high-end examples in a designer showroom. The book explores the history of glasses and reveals how premodern features and materials remain a rich source of inspiration in contemporary design, from André Courrèges's "Lunettes Eskimo," a 20th-century take on Inuit goggles, to Gucci's "Leather Aviators."
