A beautiful pair of PIERRE CARDIN sunglasses that we believe are from the seventies, but could be from the sixties as well. If anybody has more information about when exactly this model has been made, we would appreciate it in order to archive them properly.
On the left temple there is a printed model number: 3308/4, on the right temple: “PIERRE CARDIN” and right underneath it a print: “St. Germain”. This should help to date these shades properly.
The frame and temples are made of a semi transparent plastic. The bridge is the same shade of orange as the top of the temples. The rest is a light rose pink. The color and the shape of the temples make us want to re-name this model: “the shrimp”, as both color and shape resemble strongly the little sea animals.
The temples are painted and on both sides we still see the PIERRE CARDIN logo sit on top of the “shrimp” forms. The palstic used for the temples is opaque as opposed to the glossy plastic used to make the frame and lenses. The lenses have a very light orange/pink gradient. Very chic!
