Versace Frames

Versace glasses

I want­ed a bold­er look this time, since my last pair is much more sub­tle. Actually, they’re still my cur­rent pair, as I wear one or the oth­er, depend­ing on the mood.

Following the trend in most of my designs, I’m going for more con­trast and stronger state­ments.

They did­n’t sit quite cor­rect­ly on my face (or most Asian faces, the sales rep told me, as we have nar­row nose bridges), because they don’t have nose pieces. The frames would be too low for my face and my eye­lash­es would brush against the lens­es, so I had to order some nose pads to add on myself, et voilà. A per­fect fit.

Versace logos

Of note is the logo on the arms. This is the first time that I’ve seen the Versace logo like this, but fur­ther research indi­cates that it’s an uncom­mon­ly used alter­nate logo. I thought it was because the reg­u­lar logo would have lines that are too fine for small rep­re­sen­ta­tions, but that does­n’t appear to be the case, as I’ve seen it even small­er on watch­es and bracelets too. Which is just as well, as I would­n’t care to wear any­thing with the Medusa’s head on it.


  1. Wow, I guess I’m Asian. I do have an epithe­lial fold like Asian eyes and my eye­lash­es always bump into my glass­es. Which is why I nev­er wear them, they make me crazy. Maybe I have Mongolian blood from eons ago?. Gave up & chose con­tacts.

    That does­n’t look like Medusa to me, are you sure it isn’t a green woman?

    • You might just have par­tic­u­lar­ly long lash­es. I’ve read about how some girls have the same prob­lem because they use eye­lash curlers or thick­en­ers that real­ly make them pop out.

      Versace had a fas­ci­na­tion with Greek mythol­o­gy, and at one point, the image of Medusa was­n’t as the hideous hag that we think of her now.

      • Nope no giant eye­lash­es here… I wish..
        Interesting I did­n’t know that about Versace.

  2. What kind of nose pad did you get? The sil­i­cone kind? Where did you order them? The foam nosepa­ds I have for mine (in my most recent post) don’t work too well, and my glass­es slide and sit too low as well as my eye­lash­es brush­ing against the lens­es. Imagine how annoy­ing it is after I apply mas­cara!

    I like the glass­es. You look good.

    • Yep, I bought the sil­i­cone kind from a place that sup­plies lab­o­ra­to­ries called QTE North America. I’ve tried foam too, and they do tend to slide down after a while.

  3. I actu­al­ly pre­fer this pair than your last pair. It looks like it’s quite heavy with the thick arms, do they block your periph­er­al vision?

    Did you add on the nose pads by your­self? I had mine done by the shop, it cost me about CAD30.

    • They do block my periph­er­al vision a bit, I only real­ly notice when I’m dri­ving and check­ing my blind spot. I need to make sure I real­ly check it well.

      I did add the nose pads myself, but they’re not screwed on or any­thing. I hear that you need to keep adding new stick-on nosepa­ds, because the glue will wear out even­tu­al­ly. yours are prob­a­bly more sta­ble and reli­able.
