The 20th century marked a turning point in eyewear design, fueled by a rapidly changing social and cultural landscape, new manufacturing techniques, development of innovative materials, and the entertainment industry. Spectacles, which had previously been classed as purely functional, were transformed into an ultra-chic fashion accessory. Fashion Spectacles features Simon Murrary's amazing collection, which includes Inuit goggles to Gucci's "Leather Aviators."
