Can you believe your eyes? Today, we’re taking a closer look at the 3D Glasses Necklace! This Perspex take on a classic pop culture icon first appeared in our Spring Summer 2008 collection, Movie Mayhem. Kelly Osbourne even modelled a limited edition customised version for the charity Trekstock!
Rosie says, “We hosted a big party at Madame JoJo’s in Soho to launch the collection during London Fashion Week. It was so much fun! We had popcorn girls handing out treats, amazing bands, a Tatty Devine raffle and a screen test photo booth where our guests tried on all the new jewellery!
It’s interesting to see lots of films coming out in 3D at the moment. It just wasn’t normal back when we designed the 3D Glasses Necklace. It was so lovely to take a throwaway object and turn it into jewellery that’s treasured forever. We even made special Tatty Devine sellotape with the 3D glasses design and classic paper versions for our party, too!”
Harriet agrees, “3D glasses are just eternally cool. I’m so sad they don’t look like this anymore! I go to the cinema and get handed a pair of plastic Ray Ban-type glasses and it’s not the same! I want classic white cardboard with red and green lenses! It’s part of my obsession with Americana and films where teenagers drive around town all night and go to the diner until the sun rises. We even had our photo taken in 3D at the V&A Village Fete that year!”
Team Tatty says:
Laser cutting star Lusea, “Vote for the 3D Glasses Necklace! I think it’s really cool, retro and fandabbidosy! Imagine how cool it would be to see everything in 3D. Watch out Google Glass, here comes Tatty Devine!”
Kent studio star Megan: “I’m voting for the 3D Glasses Necklace as it brings back happy memories of being on my work placement at Tatty Devine and takes me back to being in my 3rd year at uni!”
