Oliver Goldsmith Y-Not (1966) - Black
Oliver Goldsmith, founded in London in 1926, didn’t invent sunglasses — but they did make them a fashion accessory. Their signature sunglasses have adorned nearly every major celebrity and style icon from the 50’s onward. Think 20th Century icons such as: Michael Caine, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Jackie O, and the list goes on. Today, the legacy set forth way back then is continued through Oliver’s great-granddaughter Claire Goldsmith. The same quality, craftsmanship, and pride in handmade eyewear — One of kind sunglasses that speak not through obnoxious logos, but by the beauty, individuality, and personality in their designs.
Y-Not (1966), well why not?! It’s big and brash, but unbelievably – incredibly wearable. Most recently made famous by Lady Gaga, these beautiful frames have made their way back into the Oliver Goldsmith collection and are a firm favorite. Handmade in Italy of thick and substantial acetate, it features unique paddle temples designed to comfortable contour the wearer's head, as well as hand drilled real riveted hinges. It is offered here in classic black paired with dark grey lenses.
