Sunglassespreservation are huge fans of all PIERRE CARDIN design, especially his sunglasses. Most iconic models designed for his memorable fashion shows and prototypes as well as many designs made under his license are all together very symbolic of the aesthetic of the time’s they were made in.
This particular model was made in the sixties and can be used with prescription shades as well as non prescription shades. The acetate is very sturdy and thick. The colors used vary from light grey brwon to green brown passing through a pallette of faded reds. It can be worn by both women and men.
The frame is rounded at the corners and flat at the bottom. Two metal PIERRE CARDIN logos have been placed within the acetate, one on each outer edge, enhancing this model’s elegance.
The right temple bares the engraved and white colored PIERRE CARDIN logo on the inside while the left temple carries the inscription of the color code as well as model number.
These sunglasses are quite heavy and very thick making them literally indestructable but due to their high glossiness they do tend to slip off the nose if worn for a long period of time under heat.
