Milton Glaser X Classic Specs

Last Updated on March 31, 2023 by amy

Looking Is Not Seeing

Classic Specs is delighted to count Milton Glaser as one of our designers. Milton Glaser received two-lifetime achievement awards from the Cooper Hewitt Museum and the Fulbright Association, and President Obama awarded him the National Medal of the Arts. In 1976, Glaser designed the I <3 NY logo, an enduring symbol for New York City that has since become the most imitated logo in history.

The Classic Specs X Milton Glaser frames were Milton’s first foray into product design and a true expression of innovation in eyewear. The limited edition collection was a mediation on the concept of “seeing” and the idea that what one believes and “sees” becomes their true perception of the world.
