Specs Appeal: Ultraluxe Tom Ford Special Edition Eyewear

Tom Ford has released a special edition collection of 1950s-inspired eyewear at 1950s prices — for a car, that is.

The specs, which come in men’s and women’s models, are made of fine gold-plated metal and feature “precious water buffalo horn” on the front and temple tips.

“These gently retro-influence frames represent the highest levels of design and fabrication in eyewear,” the release goes on to boast. “Subtly luxirious and crafted with mediculous workmanship, the two styles are some of the most refined ever offered by TOM FORD EYEWEAR.”

Priced at $2,950, the glasses will be available from April through June and come specially boxed with conditioning cream and a chamois cloth for care of the horn.

The Tom Ford boutique is located at 845 Madison Avenue at 70th Street. For more info, call 212.359.0300.
