Wearing glasses is a great way to express your own personal style. Choosing frames can be quite the process, but with the perfect pair, they can become a part of your unique identity. Italian multimedia designer and art director Federico Mauro recently explored this defining fashion sense through a series of posters entitled Famous Eyeglasses.
The minimalist artwork features basic pairs of glasses and sunglasses worn by many stars across the decades, including Elton John, Elvis Presley, The Blues Brothers, Sofia Loren, and Malcolm X. Even on a plain background with no owner in site, viewers will find themselves quickly identifying each celebrity based solely on the iconic eyewear.
From colorful heart-shaped shades to pointy horn-rimmed spectacles, the notable objects illustrate a wide variety of dispositions and personal preferences. As fashion trends come and go, it's incredible to see how the eclectic choices of famous people across the globe have come to define personalities as well as certain generations.
