What's for sale?
This is a superb pair of ladies' sunglasses from Miu Miu, the brand created by Miuccia Prada in 1993.
This classic, cat's eye design was part of Miu Miu's 2012 Spring and Summer collection. They have excellent graduated brown lenses and well-matched frames in Havana: an exterior tortoiseshell pattern with an inner, soft-sheen finish in brown.
The style code is SMU 09N and the colour combination HAT-6S1. The lenses block 100% of Ultraviolet light.
Included are the original, pink velvet case and carrying pouch. This is an opportunity to own a pair of very good quality sunglasses in excellent condition and at a fraction of what they would have cost when new.
Who made them and when?

- The glasses weigh 44 grams
How are glasses measured?
- Some frames have their sizes printed on the arms
- Look for a pair of numbers separated by a square and a three-digit number on its own (e.g. "5219 ... 140")
- The first two numbers are the lens and bridge widths. The three-digit number is the temple arm length
- Lens widths are from 40 to 62mm, bridges 14 to 22mm and arms 120 to 150mm
- The bridge is measured where the gap between the lenses is narrowest (not the frames)
- The arm is measured from the hinge along its full length, including around the bend
- It's easiest to compare online measurements with similarly-shaped glasses that you already have
- The key measurement is the frame width. Rest a ruler on the bridge of your nose, level with your eyes and measure the width between your temples in millimeters (we'll call this A). Take the frame width of the glasses and subtract 6mm (we'll call this B). If A and B are within 2mm of each other, the glasses are more likely to fit.
