Sjoukje & daughter Battice 023
Sweet smiling Battice posing in epoch making glasses made by Christian Dior almost forty years ago. It's safe to say that the arrival of Dior in optician's shops created a shock wave everywhere but the impact was especially tremendous in Switzerland. I was living there in 1976 and witnessed how the streets changed within a couple of months. Swiss ladies had always been a bit conservative in the choice of their glasses but now all of a sudden, they became front runners. The glasses shown here by Battice were a welcome discovery in the French speaking part of Switzerland, some ten years ago.
