Spectacle and Legacy

One of our favorite brands at Spectacle is Oliver Goldsmith, in fact it's Daniel's absolute number one favorite brand, he says so all the time.

Maybe its the rich history of the brand. celebrity clients include Audrey Hepburn, Princess Grace Kelly, and Peter Sellers to name a few. Maybe its the unique yet classic designs or maybe its the fact that the frames look so freaking cool on him(Im betting on the last reason)

You can imagine his excitement when we told him Spectacle will be exclusively carrying the newly launched Clair Goldsmith collection, Legacy. We're still try to peel him of the ceiling.

Clair is Oliver Goldsmith's great granddaughter and has been running the legendary line for the last few years.

Here is the press release for the debut collection.

London – September 2009. LEGACY, the debut collection from Claire Goldsmith, great granddaughter of the iconic eyewear designer Oliver Goldsmith will be launching in stores internationally in February 2010. Comprising of 10 styles in 5 different colourways, the LEGACY range promises to push the boundaries of eyewear design, in keeping with her impressive design heritage.

Having spent the last 4 years re-launching the Oliver Goldsmith brand, working with her grandfather’s designs from the family archive which spans over 70 years of eyewear fashion, Claire’s decision to launch her own line of uniquely designed frames was inevitable.

Claire Goldsmith says, “The collection has been designed by the team I have put together since re-launching the Oliver Goldsmith brand. The OG re-launch has been incredibly well received and the classic designs taken from the archive once again can be seen to be worn on some of the coolest faces out there. But vintage is just one trick and we can do so much more. LEGACY represents the future”
Combining timeless designs with contoured and bold frame shapes, the LEGACY collection is made in Italy using the high standards of craftsmanship and advanced manufacturing techniques that have become synonymous with the Goldsmith name

and beacause Spectacle Loves You here are a few pictures of the frames to come.

Stay tuned to this blog for the announcement of their arrival. Then hurry down before Daniel sells them all to his friends.
