Made in France in the early 1980s

Pierre Cardin was the first designer to create a fashion line bearing his own name. His Cardin Plus line is legendary to this day.

The stunning and extremely rare CP 808 features a real steel cable across the browline with double temples mounted with sideshields. A beautiful gold metal frame with clear earpieces. All markings on earpieces are intact, signature Cardin logo on clear nosepads.

Original brown gradient lenses with 100% UV protection and Pierre Cardin logo, matching brown sideshield lenses.

The Cardin Plus line was created at a time where sailing and water sports were regarded as the thing to do when you made it big time. Various eyewear designers started incorporating rope and knot designs to their frames, giving birth to the Fred Force 10 line, the Zollitsch Maritim line and, most of all, the Cardin Plus line.

Please be advised that i carefully glued the sideshields back into the temple rims, they were falling off because of age related shrinking of the thin CR39. Should they ever fall out from specially rough handling, they can be glued back into the temple rims or the frame can be worn without them.
