1388 Square Sunglasses-Nolita Havana

SKU CGSN-1388-57-02

The 1388 is a modern take on one Tony GrossÕ favourite frames. He was inspired by the street wear he encountered on his frequent trips to New York in the late 70s and early 80s. He was influenced by the hip hop style in New York and would return wearing gold chains and a leather Ô8 ballÕ jacket from Canal Street Market, which he would wear over his Savile Row suit. Jamel ShabazzÕs photography book ÒBack in the DaysÓ which documented the street style and scene in the early 80s of New York was to inform the collections in TonyÕs first vintage eyewear store.

The details on the limited edition 1388 of 250 units celebrate TonyÕs love of gold with the 18K gold ÔBullionÕ rivet on the temple and 18k gold 'GrooveÕ wire core. Each piece of the layered Grace White on Crystal acetate is uniquely numbered. It is also made in black, granny chic and the new Nolita Havanna.
