Oscar Magnuson goes big with an oversize ‘O’ frame inspired by Iris Apfel

”My mother worshipped at the alter of accessories and I got the bug”
Iris Apfel

The incredibly free and colourful Iris Apfel influences the latest frame to be released from the Oscar Magnuson 237 Collection, Model 8715. American Apfel’s iconic style stems from her mother’s love of accessories, her work with intricately woven antique fabrics and from foreign fashions that deligh- ted her during her travels. Now 90 years old, Iris Apfel is still instantly recognizable for her huge round trademark spectacles, and it is these that have inspired the new Model 8715. As with all 237 frames Model 8715 presents a refined and slimmed down look for ultimate wearability, and the colour range packs a punch. Model 8715 will be available in six distinct colours for A/W12: black, transparent aqua, klein blue, blended caramel, tortoise and crystal.

Minimal material and maximum expression underline the philosophy of the Oscar Magnuson 237 Collection. Simple and pure, the frames of the 237 Collection are distilled versions of iconic styles. Each design achieves an artistic balance between clean Scandinavian style, creativity and intellectualism.
