Jeremy Scott’s infamous acetate Mickey sunglasses were made as part of the fall winter 2009 pret-a-porter “mouse trap” collection. These shades were produced in Japan and have reached such an iconic status that Linda Farrow still manufactures them to date (2014).
The frame is a classic thic round design with the twist being the two additional lids made to cover the lenses and frame perfectly when shut. These two black acetate lids symbolize, when open, Mickey’s ears. The lids are attached to the frame via hinges and screws and do add quite a bit to the overal weight of this model.
The temples are narrow and were meant t not take away from the overal appeal of these shades, which is obviously front centred. Even the bridge is riduced to the minimum, leaving all the attention play to the floppy “Mickey ear lids”.
The right temple bares the Jeremy Scott label and model number as well as color printed in white on it’s inner side, while the right temple bares the Linda Farrow logo, also printed in white.
These shades have reached a very high level of iconic pop status as they have been used in various art and music video clips as well as many editorial photo shoots. Due to their high popularity we believe these shades to be one of the top ten sunglasses that have till now represented the very late 00’s and the first half of the 10’s!
