Akoni’s Copernico, a stylishly modern update on Cary Grant and Harold Lloyd’s frames, builds on cinema’s history of subliminal messaging, relying on adjustable Japanese Titanium temples, sculpted front Japanese Acetate and a technically advanced nose bridge that helps create an impressive internal titanium double rim. After legendary director Howard Hawks cast Cary Grant to play opposite Katherine Hepburn in 1938’s classic screwball comedy Bringing up Baby, Hawks told him to pattern his character after the silent film comedian Harold Lloyd. Grant’s wardrobe should include the same iconic round glasses that Lloyd had famously worn in all his films, decades earlier. Lloyd’s signature glasses served as a sort of a shorthand, signaling an intellectual leading man who was charming, physically fit and modest.
