  • GOGGLES were launched in the late 1970's by the

    British designer, Oliver Goldsmith. Check out one of

    their - David Bailey directed - tv ads on You Tube.

    The Goggles diffuse line by Goldsmith went on into

    the 1980's, launched with the tag: 'Fine lenses in

    fabulous fashion frames'. As these are fine gradient,

    mirrored glass lenses, this pair looks to be an early

    one, as glass lenses were later phased out. Goggles

    were an accessible part of a rejuvenated British

    fashion scene as European manufacture and trade

    opened up after we joined the EU in 1973. Sad that

    Brexit will be an end to this, but revel in this glamorous

    accessory, a legacy from that incredible creative period.
