On the Street…2 X Uuksuu at New Cross Fire Station, London, UK

Photos: Nico

Oliver Goldsmith designed the crazy Uuksuu sunglass in 1964 and now Claire Goldsmith, his great granddaughter remakes the cool sunglass frame. The acetate shape is slightly rounded butterfly but the lens in squareish.

My dear friend Frida works at Oliver Goldsmith in London. This summer we both ordered the same sunglass – without even knowing it! Frida has the Mint Choc Chip and I have the Tortoise Split. Great minds think alike.

This is a new frame from Claire Goldsmith, which is perfect for you guys with tiny heads – it’s a “big” model, for small heads!

I love the texture of Claire Goldsmith’s frames, you can really feel the quality of the acetate by holding them in your hands. Quality is always difficult to judge only by a picture, specially when it comes to acetate.

Despite that, I hope you can at least imagine the lustre of the texture by the photos above.
