Inspired instead by Mikhail Bakhtin vaguely subversive model of dialogism and Walter Benjamin (perhaps overly) optimistic analysis of mechanically reproducible works of art, consumption theorists (and their fellow travelers like cultural historian Michel de Certeau) focus on the inventive ways that consumers find to de contextualize and remotivate commodities and signs, often against the grain of capitalist ideology and market logic (see Bakhtin, Benjamin, and de Certeau). Deleuze and Guattari would make a similar argument in terms of the way these deterritorialized components can be reterritorialized, inserted into assemblages of desire that act as machines against the market. Indeed, in Anti Oedipus they follow Marx in insisting that consumption is itself a circuit within a more broadly conceived model of production, and they recognize that every economy must produce consumption at the same time that it produces products, and produces the network of distribution or communication that disseminates those products (Anti Oedipus 68 106; Marx 83 100).

However, this is no longer the case. Improving designs and fashion labels getting involved in the industry means that you can now get really good looking glasses with thin lenses and face complimenting frames.
