Fashion eyewear trends

We may think of fashion trends in eyewear as being a relatively modern concept but we would be wrong. It might surprise you to learn that they have a fascinating history going back 2000 years. I would like to take you over the next few news spots on a journey through those trends to show you how we have arrived today with modern fashion eyewear. In prehistoric times it is said that an eskimo blinded by the glare of the sun on the snow carved an aperture in a piece of bone and strapped it over his eyes. A eureka moment if ever there was one and sunglasses were invented. They are a long way from the modern sunglass and sunreader offered by us in our see-concept range but without that eskimo where would we be?

The first reading glasses owe much to the clergy in the middle ages who spent their days in monasteries writing manuscripts and as now in those days eyesight would deteriorate around the age of 45. The first reading glasses were an Italian invention ( wouldnt you know! ) by a monk called Salvino degli Armati- no not Armani!. These were rivet spectacles which must have been so uncomfortable unlike the modern reading glasses that our German designer Ineedyou have brought us today.

Check in on how things continued to develop.

Ciao for now!
