Polaroid Eyewear celebrating 75 years of passion and success

Polaroid Eyewear celebrating 75 years of passion and success

New York, 12th December 2012 – Polaroid Eyewear celebrated its 75th Anniversary last night, Tuesday 11th December, at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

The event was enjoyed by a thousand people from USA, South America and Europe together with personalities such as Leigh Lezark, Whitney Port, Adam Driver and Carson Kressley. The New York based DJ trio “The Misshapes” performed during the evening.

The guests discovered, explored and interacted with the brand’s technology, heritage and innovation, whilst they were introduced to how Polaroid Eyewear is moving forward into the future.

The main focus of the event was the unveiling of the new Polaroid Plus collection which will be on sale from Spring 2013.

Guests were also invited to experience polarization through a striking glare installation which demonstrated the unique and perfect vision of the Polaroid polarized lens.

The celebration took place at MoMA, whose collection of Architecture and Design includes an original pair of 1946 Polaroid sunglasses: a unique piece manufactured by the American Optical Corp. and donated to MoMA by Edgar Kaufmann Jr., heir to the famous family home Fallingwater, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. This pair of Polaroid sunglasses is among the objects in MoMA’s collection that were selected by the contemporary artist Trisha Donnelly for her installation entitled Artist’s Choice, on view at MoMA until April 8, 2013.

Polaroid Plus Sunglasses
