The iconic Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s are now available at Eyegoodies.com.
Oliver Goldsmith, founded in London in 1926, didn’t invent sunglasses — Nero wore thick slabs of emerald to shield his eyes from fierce Roman sun 2000 years ago. But there are few, if any, who have had the influence that Oliver Goldsmith has. If you haven’t heard of the brand, chances are you have seen their frames. Their signature sunglasses have adorned nearly every major celebrity and style icon from the 50’s onward. Think 20th Century icons such as: Michael Caine, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Jackie O, Princess Diana, and the list goes on.
Every year Oliver Goldsmith opens up their famed vintage archives and carefully selects from among their most beloved styles which will comprise their collection. Here we take a detailed look at one of the most iconic sunglasses, movies, and starlets of all time.
Painstakingly recreated and reissued are the legendary Oliver Goldsmith Manhattan sunglasses, as worn by Audrey Hepburn (Holly Golightly) in the classic 1961 film ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.
The unforgettable frames worn throughout the movie are at the peak of Hepburn’s perfect wardrobes — like her, they epitomize elegance, glamour, and timeless beauty. Handmade in Italy, the Manhattan is a universally flattering feminine design with a subtle sexy up-sweep. It features thick and substantial acetate, hand drilled real riveted hinges, and is available in 4 unique colors — including the signature “Dark Tortoiseshell” with Green lenses that Audrey wears in the film.
