OG Relaunches Audrey’s Sunglasses

Big, dark sunglasses are one of Holly Golightly’s favorite accessories, and the frames have forever been associated with the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  In the opening scene, Audrey is sporting a pretty hip, dark tortoiseshell pair when she eats a pastry in front of (where else?) Tiffany’s!  Most people mistake the glasses for Ray-Ban wayfarers, but the model is actually called “The Manhattan,” and was created by designer Oliver Goldsmith.  Also known as “OG,” the family-run business was founded in 1926 and have been worn by style icons like Hepburn and Grace Kelly, and also used by big design houses, such as Dior and Givenchy.  OG is one of the few eyewear manufacturers left that still create handmade glasses.  For the 50th Anniversary of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Oliver Goldsmith relaunched the famous frame Holly wears throughout the film!  They cost about $360 and can be purchased at various online retailers, or stock lists can be provided from the site directly.
