From us at Bonocle we wish you a Happy New Year!
Don’t know what to wear tonight when the big ball drops? Here’s great inspiration from A Morir.
Copied and pasted from the A Morir website:
why are you here?
there’s nothing here for you
you’re an intelligent individual with plenty of common sense. i repeat: there is nothing here for you.
unless, of course, you want to go big. unless, you are smart and sophisticated enough to understand and appreciate the quality of a handcrafted one-of-a-kind statement piece that actually makes a statement. unless you want to break necks and drop jaws. then let us welcome you to a-morir. by definition accessories are supplemental; there is no need to be practical. so go big. go hard, and go far.
with love, ’till death,
Get in the mood for an elegant new years eve with a pair of these gold coated sunnies from MYKITA Decades Collection.

So she took her red glasses and left immediately.
And she was like “WHAT?!”
She was more like “who cares?” and kept playing cards
And Lolita was like “LOL”..

The two cutest christmas storefront shop windows of optical stores I’ve seen this year are these two:
Working Santa by Bågar & Glas, Stockholm
– Inspired by Oliver People’s classic “Working Opticians” picture (see here), in a true Christmas spirit with a pure red Oscar Magnuson frame.
Modern Christmas illustration by MYKITA Shop, Berlin
– Lovely and colorful christmas illustration by talented Janine Rewell for MYKITA, with a joy- and playful spirit.
We wish you a Merry Christmas at Bonocle!
Thought of a few Christmas Movies with awesome glasses and the one that popped up was this one , can you think of any more?
A Christmas Story (1983). Photo from here.
Okay, after looking at these pictures I really want to get a pair of glasses with peachy/pink lenses. AMAZING.
Well, Rihanna is not afraid of putting on a statement outfit. Below follows a selection of her wearing different variations of black shades, all looking extremely cool on her!
This is an old Oliver Goldsmith piece, designed by Charles in the mid-century. Charles was the son of Philip Oliver Goldsmith, a former sales person from a small optical store who founded the eyewear company Oliver Goldsmith. Charles took over the business at 1935.
Another Bamboo creation by Charles is this one above from 1962, more less completely made of bamboo.
Oskar Pernefeldt is studying Visual Communication at Beckman’s College of Design in Stockholm. He’s wearing the glasses he had during his military service.
Last weekend he exhibited his creative work at The Beckman’s Christmas Market. It’s several different tags describing why Santa couldn’t deliver the gift personally and had to consult the “Santa Post”. Along with the excuse tag comes two hand perforated self adhesive stamps. He made a few for kids and a few more suitable for adults.
I think this is adorable!
