Here's a useful device for all the ladies out there. Simply drop-down one lens to apply your mascara, eyeliner or shadow whilst still being able to look through the other eye with a prescription lens. The College's latest media campaign concerned the apparently widespread mispractice of British women in using out-of-date eye make-up. It made headlines all across the country and Scandinavia too. Those blue-eyed Viking maidens like their eye cosmetics which is why we've coupled our object with an arresting postcard distributed in branches of Synsam opticians across Sweden in the year 2000. Nej men hej ('surely not?') we hear you cry, but yes we sent our curator to Stockholm to pick one up. The spectacle frame is the C-290 model by the Italian company Filos, which also holds the rights to the Revlon and Vivienne Westwood brands. The rims are hinged to a low bridge bar and the mottled grey and brown transparent design is quite fashionable even though such spectacles are only intended for momentary use.
