Panto glasses: the classic shape with a trendy iconic status
From the very beginning, panto glasses were particularly popular in intellectual and artistic circles. Today, like many other classic glasses, they are once again fully in fashion and still stand for individuality and intelligence. No wonder then that panto glasses can also be seen on the noses of numerous celebrities.
From classic to puristic: panto glasses in a horn finish or made of plastic
Originally, panto glasses were made out of tortoiseshell or natural horn. Today, the environmentally friendly cellulose acetate is used for the production of the current models of well-known brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Burberry or Marc O'Polo. The thickness of the temple and rim varies greatly from frame to frame. As a result, the characteristic shape of the panto glasses is emphasised to different degrees. Thanks to numerous different shades of colour, you can choose a pair of panto glasses that exactly matches your style and your type: glasses in horn optics have a classic look, monochrome models in shades such as black and dark grey are as attractive as glasses made out of transparent plastic due to their straightforward and puristic appearance.
Elegant and delicate: panto glasses in a mix of materials or completely made out of metal
Panto glasses in a mix of materials are also very attractive. The combination of a thick plastic frame and slender metal temples creates a very striking and interesting look. Such frames can be found, for example, by the American cult label
Ray-Ban in different versions. Besides panto glasses made of different materials, you can also opt for a model made entirely of metal. These minimalist glasses appear rather reserved and are a good choice for those who don't want to attract too much attention.
