We cannot talk about this Dior model of the 1980's without

reflecting on Wilhelm Anger. The Austrian inventor of Optyl

started with his own optical frame designs, Viennaline in the

1950's, inventing Optyl, a type of resin in 1968. In 1966, he had

lured Dior from American Tura and first made their designs in

acetate. By 1969 he was able to use the now-perfected Optyl

for Dior and the yearly eyewear collections that followed were

a sensation. The Monsieur range from Dior started in the early

1980s when this pair looks to have been made. A combination

of translucent mid-brown optyl with thin gold templeshousing

the raised CD logo. Large eye pieces as was the height of mid-80s

fashion. Wilhelm Anger also started the Carrera brand and his

invention of Optyl inspired other design houses to seek him

out, including Dunhill and Playboy. He was apparently a very

modest man but made a huge contribution to the optical world.

Wilhelm Anger (1926-2014).
