Created by Bobby Rege of Lunettes Rege Paris, these frames were made at TannerEye on Prince Edward Island in Canada - early 80s.
The leather was treated with a proprietary process that allowed the leather to resist makeup transfer, etc.
This process had only been utilized for eyewear once before, for Ralph Lauren and the advent of Polo.
Items come from a smoke and pet-free studio.
Happy to answer any questions.
