Claire Goldsmith Koko (1966) Sunglasses. KoKo (1966) named after a gorilla by the same whos name hit the news for having mastered sign language. The KoKo shape was inspired by the trend for oversized and head turning sunglasses with wide straight paddle temples. From a design aspect this large round eye follows on from the Audrey designed a few years earlier but encompasses rare Paddle Temples. The Claire Goldsmith CG Legacy Icons Sunglass Collection pays homage to the spirit of vintage styling forming truly modern classics. Legacy is eyewear that will be noticed for all the right reasons. No logos allow the design and the wearer’s individual style to speak for itself. Classic but with a modern twist, uniquely contoured and incredibly comfortable. Claire Goldsmith is the great-granddaughter of Oliver Goldsmith, one of the most influential designers and creators of modern day eyewear and the man who once dressed the eyes of iconic fashionistas such as Audrey Hepburn and Michael Caine. “If you want a truly beautiful hat you go to a milliner like Philip Treacy. If you want incredible shoes you go to Christian Louboutin. But if you want glasses that are amazing quality and that were unique and timeless in their design, then it has to be a CG frame that you invest in.
This sunglass frame is a laminated transparent mint chocolate chip acetate with rivets accenting the frame at the temple base. This sunglass frame will be hard-wearing and long-lasting.
