Vintage Nina Ricci Mod Oversized 1970's Faux Tortoise Shell Framed Sunglasses.
Nina Ricci designed the original pair of Jackie O sunglasses, which Jackie wore to a tennis championship in 1978. After that, Nina Ricci made many variations of that same design, as did other designers.
These wonderful glasses were purchased from the estate of a collector and are in excellent condition. The frames are brown faux tortoise with a cream interior, the lenses are tinted brown and have no scratching. The only flaw to these glasses is that they were popped on top of the head many times and the arms, while tight in position, do open wider than necessary. I wore them around for a day and they fit, felt and looked great!
Metal "N" on each side of the arm and marked Nina Ricci Paris on one arm, Hand Made France 1044 LO1 on the other.
They measure 5.5" side to side and 2.5" top to bottom.
