Gideon Dunns

We spotted Gideon at the MoMA Store in New York wearing these super limited-edition Prada SPR 25PS “Poeme” glasses. Originally designed as sunglasses, Gideon swapped the black gradient lenses for optical ones, which add to the intriguing look. Handmade in Italy, these acetate frames feature an in-your-face design, with a bold square shape and hand-painted flowers on the browline and temples. The frames exude lightness, nobility and amusement all at once. Produced for Prada’s spring/summer 2013 collection, these glasses almost immediately sold out and are considered extremely rare. They were the most whimsical pair of frames Gideon could find that told a story. “When you need optical frames, it’s hard to make a statement without being too crazy,” he told us. “These nailed it!”
