British Bespoke eyewear designer, Tom Davies takes on Clark Kent’s signature frame for Henry Cavill’s leading role in upcoming film as Clark Kent/Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
London based eyewear designer Tom Davies, was asked to create Clark Kent’s signature frame for the film that is due to be released on March 25th. Davies has always been fascinated by Clark Kent’s ‘reverse superhero disguise,’ using his spectacles to disguise his secret identity. For this film, Davies’ aim was to work with Cavill’s natural features and bring out a different version of him in glasses. Davies focused on the lines of the frame to alter the public’s perception of the character.
The eyeglasses have a dark frame made from horn, with two rivets (metal dots) on each side of the temple.
