Youth

February 5th, 2016

Paolo Sorrentino’s new film Youth is packed full of fantastic frames.  The writer/director himself wears a frame identical to the Black Eyewear ‘Chet‘.  All the lead characters could have been accessorised by Black Eyewear; Michael Caine in a pair of glasses ever so similar to the ‘JayJay‘, Harvey Keitel in the twin of our ‘Dexter‘ sunglasses and Jane Fonda looks ravishing in bright yellow sunglasses reminiscent of the ‘Paloma‘.  If vintage is more your style try our Aviator ‘Captain‘, closest frame to Harvey Keitel’s optical glasses.
