Imitation Is The Greatest Form Of Flattery
They say that everything that goes around comes around again. We saw it here at the Stella McCartney Spring Summer 2016 runway. Her large chunky aviator sunglasses are a direct take off of the 1980’s Silhouette Futura. The shape is a little more aviatorish and has rivets where the front meets the temples.
Personally the Futura collection(s) are one of my favorite frames ever. This just goes to show it classics never die and it’s great when designers are inspired by true eyewear experts, like Silhouette.
