Eyewear can truly make history. One of the most famous museums in the world, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, has a permanent exhibition of Oliver Goldsmith eyewear. It is a record of the dramatic growth of the eyewear industry in the 20th century. It includes a variety of styles, materials, colors and charts the evolution of modern eyewear from the ubiquitous hand crafted tortoiseshell frames of the 1920s and 1930s, through the early use of plastics in the 1950s to the more sophisticated materials and manufacturing techniques of the 1970s and 1980s.
The passion for vintage fashion and the retro look of the 60’s and 70’s is the inspiration for the latest collection with some of the models reproduced from samples that had been archived in the past.
You don’t have to go to London to see it! Even better, you can actually buy it! I can’t wait to see it, maybe because I am British and nostalgic for the 60’s.
This exclusive English brand made famous in the 60’s by celebrities like Michael Caine, Audrey Hepburn and Princess Margaret wearing his stylish frame is bringing back the Original and Genuine Oliver Goldsmith Retro Spectacles Collection at Vision Expo West. Meet Oliver Goldsmith in person and to become one of the few selected exclusive dealers in U.S.A. of this exclusive brand. (Booth G24005 – Galleria)
