Sometime back, a particular friend of mine was faced with a persistent optometrical problem. It all started when she was at work, and she had somehow dropped her glasses and broke one of the arms in the process.

I’d suggested (with a pinch of seriousness, and a huge dose of humour) that she buy one of those glass chains that may look very granny-like, but could very well secure your glasses (and your money since you don’t need to get it fixed or get a new pair).

Who would’ve thought that big names like Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton have already taken grandma for a walk outside.


Judging from the current onset of vintage/retro trends accompanied with the functionality of the chains, I’m thinking grandma will be out for a long, long stroll.

ps. Emma dear, hope your glasses are fine by now and please do take my advice!  ( – 8
