Pinto Champagne Sunglasses by Oscar Deen
Founded by two Londoners, Oscar Phillips & Sheriff-Deen Showobi, OD was built to create things that inspire. Every pair of OD frames start with scouring the streets of Europe to find the classic frames that form the basis of all their designs. They spend weeks, sometimes months re-designing, modernising and putting their own touch on the frames they find. Turning a dusty old gem, into our idea of a modern classic.
The Pinto was inspired by some 1940's French made Crown Panto spectacles, first spotted hunting through flea markets in Paris.
To modernise the design, the frames have been broadened, as those made in the 1940's are often quite narrow. The 'crowned' brow was also accentuated with a raised key hole bridge and mirroring the peaks at the base of the frame front.
It comes with a case that is hand made in London, from 2 pieces of recycled composite leather, 4 brass rivets and one brass stud. Made in collaboration with London-based leather artisan Otis Ingrams.
