Optician continues its report from the halls of the eyewear exhibition in Paris

Oliver Goldsmith Icons range: Señor SNR


The trend for retro-futurism was evident in new styles launched by Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses, with inspiration taken from a 1969 concept.

Sunglasses with lightly tinted lenses, originally known as cosmetic lenses during the 60s, were designed by Oliver Goldsmith for protection against the sun’s glare on a winter’s day or to remove the brightness of interior lights.

New styles from the brand’s Winter Sun Collection include Irwin (pictured), a cat’s eye silhouette with rounded lenses suited for small and medium face shapes.

Colours options include scarlet, shadow and tinted window (pictured), all paired with a light grey lens. Additions to its OG Icons range, include Señor SNR (pictured top), an oversized square shape with subtle ’60s styling that creates a timeless look.
