If you imagine Christa Päffgen, alias Nico, wearing a pair of glasses, it would be the Eve cateye by Essel.
The existentialist look of the 1960s with curved temples and decorative metal inlay – pure, nonconformist and very sophisticated.
This model was produced by the traditional French manufacturer Essel (now Essilor), whose patent for “Nylor” glasses secured their place in eyewear history.
In Nylor glasses, the lenses are secured to the frame by a transparent nylon thread, and appear to float. Passionate wearers of this type of frame include Bauhaus architect Max Bill.
