Marylou Luther

We met and photographed fashion journalist Marylou Luther after the Balmain show during Paris Fashion Week. These super round frames were handmade in Paris and have been a signature of hers for years. Marylou started wearing them because of the shape – and the large size. “The older you get,” she told us, “the bigger glasses you get, as they take away the wrinkles!”

The circular lenses in these frames are connected by a flat nose bridge, which lies straight across the top and is gently curved at the bottom to fit over the nose. We also like the triple rivet detailing on the temples. The jet black colourway gives these retro-inspired frames a clinical look, though they are right at home on Marylou at fashion week as well!
