1395 Round Sunglasses
The 1395 is inspired by the trailblazing fashion designer Thea Porter - the Queen of Bohemian fashion in the 1970 whose atelier was in Greek St, Soho, London. Porter dressed the era’s musical icons, including Jimmi Hendrix, The Beatles, Mick Jagger and Diana Ross. She was responsible for introducing that staple of Bohemian fashion, the Kaftan to the West. Porter mixed fabrics and traditional clothing from the Middle East with its bright and vibrant textures which injected life and colour into the grey concrete backdrop of 1970s London.
Oversized with extravagance, muted and tonal in colouring, the 1395 reflects the tenets of Bohemian fashion. A large round with a low bridge drawing the observer in like the plunge neckline of a kaftan. High set hinges complete the vintage look with comfort interior milling and rounded bevelling give a smooth external finish.
