Prism glasses - glasses as accessories

Prism glasses
Prism London spectaclesI'd heard good things about Prism glasses, from Anna Laub, but nothing quite prepared for me for the simplicity and quality of these frames.

I love the mixture of a relatively classic look with the modern prism logo on the temple, and the simply terrific acetates.

Opticians'll be confused not only because to them "prism glasses" relates the wearer's prescription, but also because Prism's the type of glasses being sold in shops, not opticians.

"Glasses as accessories" has been going on for a year or two now and it's generating a number of exciting new looks. At last people seem to be asking why, if bags, earrings, watches, and cufflinks for God's sake are accessories why are glasses so different?

Prism glasses are handmade and hand-finished in Italy... and they're the best things I've seen in bloody ages.
