It’s no secret that the most desired sunglasses by women in love with a certain fashion icon were from one particular movie that came out in 1961. It was about a wayward playgirl who embodied the jazzy newness of the sixties, the birth of free spirit and wanderlust and a female antihero who glamorized fashion in a way only Truman Capote could’ve realized. Due to trademarks, actress likeness copyright and other ridciculousness we can’t mention names but we can tell you this… Island Company’s Creative Director Spencer Antle was convinced no-one had ever done it correctly.
“The glasses from the movie had no origin. It had been researched by many, and quite a few companies took credit, but forensically we found, after a year of our own investigations and comparisons that none even came close.”
