My new custom made glasses by Alain Mikli…photo by Philip Morrow

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I could not be happier, today I picked up my new sunglasses. They are hand made by the master of the eye world, Alain Mikli exclusively for me. I wore his shades for 27 years and then ….I was disloyal. But maybe that paid off because now I have a beautiful custom made pair and I'm thrilled.

Three shades of black.
