Swatch Eyes

If you where a teenager trying to find (and eventually assert!) your look in the 80's you may have stumbled upon a pair of Swatch Eyes sunglasses at some point. What they did was allow you to play around with different patterns and colours (perfect for indecisive teenagers!), you bought the basic structure, alluminium and plastic frame and then the plastic front came in various colours and patterns.
Since I am no longer a teenager I have rediscovered their appeal and thanks to Photoshop I have been inventing my own with these beautiful patterns...though these are probably not quite what you think, mastery revealed here!
