Koko is one of Oliver Goldsmith’s most popular and archetypal sunglass designs. Originally designed in 1966 (the temple is embossed with this date), its large circular shaping and paddle temples are representative of the era and the infamous ‘swinging sixties’.
Handmade by craftsman in Italy using the finest quality cotton acetate and featuring optical grade sun lenses with premium UVA/UVB protection.
The Koko channels the glamour and fervour of the 60’s but remains as stylish today as it did back then. A true icon.
KoKo (1966) named after a gorilla whose same name hit the news for having mastered sign language. The KoKo shape was inspired by the trend for oversized and head turning sunglasses with wide straight paddle temples. From a design aspect this large round eye follows on from the Audrey designed a few years earlier but encompasses rare Paddle Temples. 55☐23-140
