Claire Goldsmith Sophia (1958) Sunglasses. Sophia (1967) named after Sophia Loren, one of Oliver Goldsmiths favorite actresses of the time. Designed in 1958 this elegant cats eye takes its rightful place as an OG: Icon with little competition. Worn by Grace Kelly in the early 60s it sums up the gracefulness of the cats eye but still carries the boldness of Oliver Goldsmith styling. 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.
