Designers start making a powerful impact on 20/20 with covers devoted to Tom Ford, Jhane Barnes and (a continuing favorite!) John Varvatos. But already lots of love for fiercely independent devotees to what we now call Our Eyewear as seen here via ProDesign, Mikli, Silhouette, Match and Rudy Project covers. And while we’re on the subject of “designers,” it is certainly worth noting the fresh impact from newly named Art Director Iris Johnson (especially love her Fendi profile cover) and the start of Web Designer Julie Zidel forecasting the growing reach of 2020mag EVERYWHERE online.
