(DOUG GRIFFIN/TORONTO STAR ARCHIVES)[/caption] Since its inception in 1976, the "Festival Of Festivals" has grown and evolved into the much revered "Toronto International Film Festival". Respected cinephile Roger Ebert had suggested our film festival was second only to Cannes in importance and influence internationally. It has also facilitated the screening of Canadian made films and the promotion of local talent over four decades. For those of you queuing up for a TIFF premiere or just heading out to the grocer, Josephson Opticians offers you two options of glamorous glasses appropriate for either occasion! Flattering and flirtatious, this new offering from Cartier incorporates the Trinity motif which originated as a ring design in 1924. Three interlocking bands of pink, white and yellow gold adorn the temple of this sophisticated model. The unique twisted temple is die-stamped under extreme pressure, rather than die cast, to ensure its durability. Precious two-toned gold and palladium finishes overlay the metal alloy base of the frame chassis. This luxurious and alluring piece is evocative of old Hollywood glamour and the timeless elegance associated with the Maison Cartier. Worthy of equal consideration, this model from Anne et Valentin's CinemaScope collection subverts the equation of glamour with glitz. Featuring bezeled surfaces of contrasting matte and gloss surfaces, this interpretation of glamour is contemporary and free of cliché. Josephson Opticians offers you these glamorous options and more at our locations throughout Toronto.
