Silhouette Symphony, opus seven....
Frame 1145 must have been a bestseller for Silhouette during the mid 1980's. My collection hosts at least five examples of it, in different colors and sizes. Most of these glasses were shown in earlier photo shoots but not often. This has to do with the Rx of the lenses and not with the quality of the frame.
The only model who posed in the glasses shown here by Iris was a highly experienced model called Carla (072), five years ago. She had a prescription with a fair bit of astigmatism and these Silhouette glasses gave her almost perfect eyesight. In passing, a word of thanks is due to Carla for her recent donation of a couple of her glasses which are of no use to her anymore after undergoing laser surgery.
