This set of realistic pencil illustrations by French artist Nabil Nezzar emphasizes contemporary eyewear. Titled Montures, the collection of hand-drawn portraits exhibit modelesque females sporting stylish sunglasses and glasses frames. Of the drawings include some iconic glasses by notable fashion designers; Tom Ford's circular sunglasses and Prada's retro cat's eye glasses are two of the models featured.

The drawings are like illustrated mannequins. This makes sense, since Nezzar has worked for several renowned advertising agencies and has freelanced for fashion houses like Louis Vuitton. The illustrator puts these glasses on display by shading the models in black and white while accentuating the glasses with colored pencils. Sketches have a way of exuding a whimsical aura, so perhaps they may be more effective than real life photographs in certain aspects of advertising.
