Christian Dior was the first couture house to enter into the market for glasses. Their example was soon followed by several other couture houses but they were less prolific and as a result, their impact on the market was not as substantial. My collection only hosts a few glasses made by Pierre Cardin and this is the earliest pair. The style is quite characteristic for the 1970's. I bought them at the Amsterdam flea market for two guilders in the 1980's and back home it was a huge surprise to find out that they were made by Cardin. In my opinion, these glasses blend perfectly with Nicci's face in each and every respect.
