OK Go GenEYE… Right… NOW



When 20/20 Web Designer Julie Zidel showed us her “signed” copy of the new OK Go album, it was clear that bass player Tim Nordwind had the classic “GenEYE look” down pat with his specs. He was cagey with 20/20 when it came to naming brand names but the style and appeal of his eyewear and the deep regard for how he feels his glasses reflect his persona is clear. We love that: State-of-the-Art as State-of-the-Eyes. Want to know more about OK Go? Go to okgo.net.

Art Director Iris Johnson’s sister Daphne was a highlight of the 20/20 “Real Women in Great Glasses” feature wearing Lafont’s Ivoire style. An NYU student at the time, Daphne also performed as a figure skater between periods at New York Rangers games and was a member of the skate theater of New York. This 2003 issue continued the tradition of specifically featuring women’s eyewear every February.
