Stealth Designer: Oliver Goldsmith
Do you consider your sunglasses a fashion accessory? If so, thank Oliver Goldsmith. This British manufacturer isn't a household name, yet they singlehandedly created the idea of sunglasses as a style statement.
While the company still creates its handcrafted styles by special commission, the authentically vintage versions are just as smashing, and typically far more affordable. Check out this awesome pair above, for sale on eBay . . . which can be worn equally well upside down as rightside up . . .
Small works of wearable art, pairs like these look equally good atop the head as across the face. Oliver Goldsmith. The epitome of vintage cool.
