One of the most Iconic designs in the history of 20th Century Eyewear by SILHOUETTE. The Schmied family and their design team were true visionaries when designing the FUTURA series in the early 70's. A little story behind the making of these spectacular frames: When the first round of pre-production samples was finished, probably around 1971, the arms, we were told, were hand labeled in a rush. (M: 562 F:813, F stands for Farbe) and then these hand labeled spectacular shades were passed on to famous Top Fashion Photographers (only) of that period, for Silhouette to see how these lens masters would interpret their designs. A totally new concept in those days. BTW, we took these hand labels off to have the frames cleaned, but these hand labels are conserved and are available with this purchase. An extremely rare find for the eyewear aficionados! Made in Austria. This beauty comes with the exquisite Christian Roth "25 sunny years" limited edition packaging including the most fabulous leather case (handmade in Japan) .
This edited selection is dedicated to "RARE" and collectible "VINTAGE" eyeglasses and sunglasses, some of them from before Christian Roth and Eric Domege even started their own fashion eyewear brand. Collected by the duo over decades, each sunglasses is a reference or an inspiration for their work as a designer or just a "Coup de Coeur." They are all curated with passion and are in mint condition. Part of the proceeds from the sales of this collection will go to OrphanAid Africa.
