The Iconic Four-Eyes
Once upon a time: These glasses were synonomous with the architect so badass, he could have one name with a “le” in front of it. The glasses were almost like a sculpture resting on his nose—two symmetrical circles made out of a dark ebony. The lenses were so thick it was hard to see his eyes, evoking a sense of mysterious genius.
Now: These are the go-to frames for anyone who is an architect or trying to look like an architect. They go great with a black rollerball pen and a mini moleskine notebook. While it might be hard to reach Le Corbusier’s level of cool, some might think that associating with his specs is a way to channel the architectural legend. IM Pei and Philip Johnson are two examples of architects who brought the Corbu spirit to life.
