Iconic… EYEconic



OK GenEYE… Let’s see what you’ve got. Over the next few months, Parting Glance is going to concentrate on iconic persons from other generations photographed in significant “eyewear” moments. As we do this, it is hoped you dear readers will respond with your nominations of EYEconic GenEYE (millennials born between 1982-ish and 2002-ish) in THEIR specs. Send your thoughts and missives to me at jspina@jobson.com, and we’ll finish off the year with a top nominee in the December 2015 Parting Glance page of 20/20. Let’s jumpstart the festivities with James Dean born in a segment within the Greatest Generation dubbed… the Silent Generation.

Although we pictured John Lennon on the cover of 20/20’s Icons issue, the inside story noted Elton John as “the Captain Fantastic when it comes to eyewear as a facial medal of honor.”      —JJS
