If you take a close look at the DITA x Thom Browne Fall/Winter 2011 eyewear collection, you might recognize cues from the specs iconic politicians, designers, artists and professors wore during the 40s, 50s and 60s. That's exactly the aesthetic the designers were going for, according to HighSnobiety; they also placed a focus on blending the signature classic cues of previous Browne releases with DITA's renowned craftsmanship.

The DITA x Thom Browne Fall/Winter 2011 line boasts a patriotic palette to go along with its politician-inspired theme. Red, white and blue branding appears throughout the collection, and the frames themselves range from polished metal to black plastic and brown tortoiseshell. Many of the specs feature rounded wire arms that curve around the base of the ear -- a design cue that isn't often seen in modern eyewear collections.
