These Lennon glasses are perfect for your next vogue shoot.
Teashades or occasionally called Granny glasses, were a type of psychdellic wire-rim sunglasses worn purely for aesthetic reasons by members of the 1960s countercukture. Pop icons such as Mick Jagger, Roger Daltry, John Lennon, Jerry Garcia, Boy George and Ozzy Osbourne all wore teashades.
The original teashade design was made up of medium-sized, perfectly round lenses, supported by pads on the bridge of the nose and a thin wire frame. When teashades became popular in the late 1960s, they were often elaborated: Lenses were elaborately coloured, mirrored and produced in excessively large sizes, and with the wire earpieces exaggerated.
