VERSACE model 4269 is the highlight of VERSACE’s spring-summer 2014 shades collection. It is available in five colors: tortoise (seen here), red, purple, blue and black. Both colors are covered in pale gold metal studs. The black version seems more punk but the tortoise color wins triumphant as it represents VERSACE’s verve and soul to a “T”!
The VERSACE press release shows big interest in pointing out the exact amount of studs used to embellish these sunglasses: total of 71 studs (of which 63 on the frame and 8 on the temples). something struck us as strange as the frames are symmetric so an uneven number of studs on the frame would mean that either the left or the right side of the frame would have one stud more than the other side. So, as soon as we welcomed these beautiful shades into sunglassespreservation archives, we did a little bit of counting ourselves. In fact, the studs on the frame are 62 (not 63).
The studs used were chosen to mirror the maison’s preference for triangles, spheres, pyramids and spirals (all sybols used by Gianni Versace during his active creative career. Each one of the two temples carries 4 studs and a metal VERSACE name inscription on the outside. The inner left temple bares the mode number while the inner left bares the VERSACE logo as well as country of production.
This model is made of sturdy thick acetate. The frames are cut in a high shaped cat-eye form. They are so high that they almost look alien-like. A true rock-n-roll alien!
VERSACE model 4269 was made in Italy, by LUXOTTICA.
