The origin of glasses:
The first glasses were born in Italy at the end of the 13th century. In 1268, Roger Bacon first recorded lenses used for optical purposes. At the same time, however, magnifying lenses with lenses in frames for reading have appeared in Europe and China. There has been controversy as to whether glasses were introduced into China from Europe or China into Europe. Early glasses mostly used magnifying glass technology, so most of them were reading glasses. It was not until 1604 that Johannes Kepler published the theory of why concave and convex lenses can correct farsightedness and nearsightedness, that glasses with nose pads began to be practical.
So what are retro glasses?
What is the first retro? Retro is not what we call nostalgia, nor is it cultural revival. It is just independent innovation and scientific research. It can also be said to be a product of the times. It is hard to understand.
The first occurrence of this time dates back to the 1990s, but at that time, anyone regarded retro as outdated and retrogressive, and it was not until later that they were allowed to find a suitable precise positioning and renew their vitality.
Modern retro glasses are one of the best-selling styles. Its existence has brought a light to our fashion industry. Often, many more fashionable celebrities understand that retro glasses are not backward, but rather an innovative existence.
Then what kinds of retro glasses have you learned about?
Type 1: Retro glasses made of tortoiseshell, a bit like a grandmother’s myopia? But the colorful colors of tortoiseshell seem to be back to the 19th century.
The second type: rimless glasses. I still remember that a certain era in the five thousand years of history can be described as very popular, simple but stylish, and the favorite of business people.
Type 3: In fact, I feel that it is mixed in. Because there have never been any descriptions and definitions of wooden structures that belong to the retro, but I have to admit that at the first glance, I think it is.
Retro glasses can be said to revitalize ancient culture and art, and the classic retrospect of culture and art is the inheritance of historical time and independent innovation of the period.
