Dan Deutsch, who styles the prime quality glasses, has a motto. He says glasses are jewellry to the face. You can spot crowds of people wearing them in and around LA. Beginning in 1969, he currently has a chain of retail stores and serves as a consultant for films, TV and eyewear manufacturers. Kenzo Takada found Masunaga frames in Paris. He also designed sunglasses, in Japan. He uses titanium or Masunaga’s signature acetates. Lenses are polarised with anti-reflective coating on the inside. Only the elite few are retailing his latest collection, which is limited to 100 pair in each standard set and 5 pieces of each model in the 18k gold.
