Mind the gap: Alain Mikli eyeglasses

Alain Mikli eyeglasses - click to enlarge. Photo: David ChoeThe hot British weather sent me a little sunglass mad and I've realised I haven't posted a spectacles picture for more than a week.

Alain Mikli is a French glasses designer of huge importance. I have a pair of his frames not dissimilar to David Choe's in this self-portrait.

Click on the pic to enlarge the image and see Mikli's signature gap between front and temple. The clever hinge stops the glasses feeling too heavy on the nose.
