Pathe News 1950 fashion report –
A toast now to the women and where more attractive than this school for models, where we’re just in time for a lesson in the art of specmanship. Demonstrating this comparatively new art in using spectacles as a fashion accessory is top couturier Ronald Patterson.
With this sophisticated town suit in hat and fox fur, Ann wears frames with a leaf motif.Notice how the up-swept brow-line harmonizes with the oval lines of her face.
One of the many aspects to be considered when a particular pair of spec is chosen for a specific occasion which is why the school for models run by Lucie Clayton has chosen to include the subject in its syllabus.
Here, these spectacles give a racy look to Susan’s taupe coat with matching scarf and hat. The specs are in the new long look with leather and canvas side pieces and metal studs at the front.
Liz wears spectacles with a red ribbon motif matching her attractive ensemble.
Finally a shadow fitted wool dress and matching jacket luxuriously lined in fox are highlighted by plastic frames in the unorthodox kiss style.
That’s all !
