PIERRE CARDIN model 350-42 is a classic example of spaceage design. These sunglasses  have a futuristic pilot shape combined with PIERRE CARDIN’s puristic conceptualism. The slightly elevated bridge transforms these shades into visions of the future interpreted by a designer in the seventies. This model was available in a variety of colors, including white, orange, grey, dark blue and red.

The frame and temples are made of opaque acetate. Both of the outter sides behold a metal PIERRE CARDIN logo while the right inner temple has the logo printed in black. The inner left temple bares the imprint of the model number and color.

These sunglasses are made of white acetate. White opaque acetate tends to color or discolor very easily. It tends to turn yellow through the decades from exposure to sun and the wearer’s acids contained in sweat.
