Designer

Former haute couture model, fashion designer and stylist Emmanuelle Khanh was born Renée Georgette Jeanne Mézière in 1937 in Paris where she died on 17 February 2017. Emmanuelle Khanh was often called the French Mary Quant and known for her modern and youthful designs. In a 1964 Life magazine feature, Khanh declared, "The couture is dead; I want to design for the street." She formed her own company in 1971 and in 1972 she decided to create a collection of bold and colourful glasses. From this will result a series of iconic models, including the famous 8080 frame, worn by Emmanuelle Khanh herself and many celebrities such as Stevie Wonder and David Bowie.

 

Condition

These sunglasses are in excellent vintage condition. The frame shows minor wear that is only visible under close inspection. The original lenses show minor scratching and two visible scratches at the corners of the lenses that do not photograph. Due to the position they do not affect vision.
