Important vintage Christian Dior sunglasses by Tura. Said to be the first fashion designer to use the concept of licensing one's name to build brand identity and to enter new markets, Christian Dior licensed his name to exacting eyewear innovator Monroe Levoy of Tura. Tura was known for designing and producing cast metal frames. These glasses were one of the first produced by Tura for Dior, hence one of the remaining pieces of fashion history regarding what became the American business of branding and cross marketing. Plus, they are a beauty!

Though one might see these Red, White, and Blue shades and say "Viva la France!" because of Dior's nationality and the colors of the flag, Americans see these and think no need to make America great again. The truth is, the glasses are a little of both as Monroe Levoy and Tura were an American optical enterprise located in the heart of Manhattan, right on Madison Avenue. How ever you envision them we say is okay with us as they are truly visionary!

The metal frame glasses have octagonal lenses with alternating red, white, and blue enamel stripes. The nose bridge has plastic pads, and the arms of the frames feature the iconic Dior mark. Both nose bridge and arms are gold tone. The glasses come with their original leather sleeve upon which is a stamped gold Dior logo.

Tura glasses were so loved by fashionistas of the time, that when Optyl landed the Dior license in the late 1960's they started the first several lines were based right from the shapes and enameling of the previous Tura hits such as these.

Enjoy!
