The KISS cover of this issue has to be one of my all-time favourites. It is just so cute!
It's funny how fruit was often a feature item in many an 80's fashion spread, and this 'Shade Your Image' feature is a great example of this. Not sure how practical these sunglasses styles are, and I'm sure at least one of them has been adopted by Dame Edna Everage, but the pictures are quite sweet. I happened to look up some background information on Peter Yeo who designed these sunglasses, and it's quite an interesting story. He was an AFL player who went on to designing sunglasses, and is now a quadriplegic due to a household accident. He seems like quite the inspirational person, and that's what I love about looking through these vintage magazines - the wealth of new information they can lead you to.
