Designers need to keep coming up with new justification so that we part with our hard earned moolah without a second thought. Tom Ford has come up with his Special Edition Optical Eyewear Collection which consists of frames inspired from the Baby Boomer Generation.
The 1950s styled frames cost about $2950 thanks to being made from water buffalo horn and a gold plated metal. The frames are available for both men and women (different designs as seen in the accompanying image). Each frames and its leather case is presented in a luxurious, Bakelite box with a soft brown lining. A certificate of authenticity and a special cleansing cream and chamois cloth are provided to care for the water buffalo horn.
