These 1950s Black Swan eyeglasses demonstrate ornateness and perfect symmetry. The retro design mimics the shape of a cat-eye frame with added wings and two swan necks that form a heart shape above the nose bridge. Etched on details and decals at the temple give the vintage glasses an extra special finish.

“This is so not a collection about Black Swan,” said designer Giles Deacon about his 2012 Spring Ready-to-Wear collection. He rather refers to it as an exhibition in a stream-of-consciousness. However interpreted, the fortitude of women certainly shines through.
Designer Alain Mikli gathers inspiration from throughout the universe when creating “Les lunettes pour voir autant que pour être vues…Frames to see as well as to be seen…”. The animus to these 2012 lavish Black Swan sunglasses with feathered headpiece has been made clairvoyant.
At ripe age of 19 fashion designer Anna Karin Kaarlson was thrown into London’s high end eyewear luxury industry. She is most deserved of an honorable mention for now creating her own international fashion brand, among her many other artistic talents. All of her sunglasses are skillfully crafted with precision and detail to create designs that are uniquely her own. These Black Swan Flip Down are certainly no exception!
