LANVIN sunglasses from 1961 in marble effect acetate, square cut, brown/grey lenses. Mrs. LANVIN was a sophisticated lady and her legacy keeps living on. These shades are vintage and we know very little about them. We do not know the exact name of the model or the code number that was associated to them. We do not know if they even had a code number.
The inner parts of the temples state: “LANVIN paris” and “made in France” but nothing more is writen on them. The thick acetate marble-y effect frames and temples are of a high impact. They are heavy to wear and do tend to slide off the nose as they are very wide cut on the nose.
The color is a mix of shades of grey mostly and white/brown. We know of the existance of another color combination which carries predominantly brown shades and is made of a thinner acetate. There might be other colors available but we have no certainty of that.
The reason we presume these shades are from 1961 is because when we received them, they had a “1961” sticker on them. But this year might be incorrect. Please contact us if you know more information about these shades. Thank you.
