Marc Jacobs (maybe the most famous designer you never heard of) – has stepped in with very modern twists on some very classic styles. The MMJ 485 is a great case in point. A very popular look back in the ‘50’s was the Harlequin style, which gave us those great “cat-eye” looks. While this new frame from Marc Jacobs evokes the Harlequin feeling, it will never be confused with a cat-eye, as the lens size embraces the new, larger lens look.
The color is a laminated tiger-eye tortoise shell, with a rich tortoise color on the front, a fun black on crystal center, and a totally clear layer on the back. Additional ornamentation is very subtle – a lettered logo that is virtually lost in the rich frame color.
OK, people – it’s time! There is a change going on in America, and it’s time to get rid of the old, and bring in the new. Let’s start by updating those old glasses!
