Kanye West

As surely as George Bush hates black people, Kanye West loves a fashion statement. Indeed, the so-called ‘Shutter Shade’ made so ubiquitous by Mr. West proves that function need not preclude fashion.

And even if this one turns up in the annals of fashion history under a “What were they thinking?” banner, those of us that were there can surely answer, “Damn, I look good.”

Yves Saint Laurent

One of the most revered designers of all time, Yves Saint Laurent demonstrated a deeper understanding of aesthetic when he said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

This could be no truer than when looking at the man himself, a veritable icon of style. The man understood that even a simple pair of black frames can inform who we are, and more importantly, who we want to be.

Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is perhaps one of the few people in history who successfully turned their very existence into a work of art; and just as art endures over time, so too has his iconic look.

Warhol was that rare breed of artist that truly saw the world through different eyes, and almost always that creative worldview was filtered through a seriously stylish pair of frames.

Ghandi

Gandhi, without a doubt the poorest man to make any iconic style list; and just as he was a man of simple means, the glasses he donned on the daily were elegantly minimalist.

Belying clarity and intelligence, these simple wire frames are a testament to the fact that it is the man too, who makes the clothes.

Johnny Depp

Perpetual ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Johnny Depp has always been known for his progressive style, and although his looks may change faster than the characters he portrays in his films, these glasses are more often than naught part of the ensemble.

Substantial, yet subtle, these glasses reflect the man that wears them, in possession of a style all his own.

  4. Maybe just outside your “100 Years” timeframe, but no Teddy Roosevelts?
    No Harry Trumans?
    No Kissingers?

  5. The boss tried to pick one person to represent each type of frame, so we dropped any overlap. Maybe we’ll do a follow up that’s just politicos? Kissinger, FDR, Gorbachev, and Jim Callaghan, perhaps?

  11. @CER, @Ugh, the apostrophe is used to indicate the possession as well. As in ‘These are Andy’s eyeglasses’, and ‘This is Kanye’s antique Ra head chain.’

  15. The proper spelling is Gandhi, and the apostrophes shouldn’t be there. These are Kanye’s glasses, but they are “The Kanyes.”
