Never worn piece of eyewear history from the 70´s.
The story began in 1961, when Walter A. Nufer founded the company NEOSTYLE in Stuttgart. He immediately implemented his concept of developing eyewear frames, which were not merely functional but also met up-coming trends. Thus originated an avant-garde eyewear style. Details became of major importance. The NEOSTYLE boom happens in the 70´s when Konstantin Livas, the head designer, creates de NAUTIC line that was a sensation among celebrities in the USA. The most iconic of them all, Elvis Presley, saw them in his opticians on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles. He liked them so much he ordered 5 there and then a further 3 solid gold frames ornately embellished on temples. Elvis wore it in the 70s in many of his legendary performances, and at the unforgettable 1972 in Madison Square Garden concert.
