Did you see the Channel 4 Cutting Edge documentary Fabulous Fashionistas? Six ladies with an average age of 80 not afraid to be bold when it comes to fashion and eyewear!
Have you seen BBC Two drama Top of the Lake? We spotted director Jane Campion, in a film about the making of the TV miniseries, in some very stylish glasses and sunglasses along with her co creator Gerard Lee.
Gerard Lee’s glasses are like the very traditional Saville Row.
Marple – a Caribbean Mystery, which was shown Sunday night on ITV, featured some stunning cat eye sunglasses. Classic 1950s styles were worn by Hermione Norris as Evelyn Hillingdon and MyAnna Buring as Lucky Dyson who turned out not to be so lucky. Miss Marple managed to make quite an impression on the crochety old Rafiel played by Antony Sher who wore frames similar to the Black Eyewear ‘Artie’.
Last weekend saw the broadcast of BBC remake of classic Alfred Hitchcock film The Lady Vanishes. By all accounts this version follows the original 1936 novel by Ethel Lina White, The Wheel Spins, more closely; however, it is no Hitchcock and much of the humour of the 1938 film was lost. There were wonderful vintage glasses throughout.
