A Couple of Great…Sunglasses
Pick an outdoor setting. Any season.
Any reason. Picture a perfect couple. Complete the scene with that essential accessory—the perfect pair of sunglasses…
Because the sun knows no season… And sunglasses are so cool, they’re always hot.

A Couple of… Sun Spots

Retro is Now. And it’s Now Retro. Vintage-inspired designs sport modern twists—titanium frame materials, ultra-thin plastics, nosepads, reinforced plastic bridges.

Giant-size is still Glamorous when it comes to women’s sunglasses. The Jackie O look thrives by virtue of blending with any trend—be it ’60s retro or a stroll down the latest celebrity red carpet event.

Conserving their energy, men’s styles focus on high-tech, high-quality and universal wearability.

Sport continues to influence style.

Style continues to influence sport. Tortoise, quite simply, continues.

Laminated zyls add richness via color combos, artistic layered cuts and techniques that deliver iridescent effects.  

Iridescent Effects.

Animal prints are on the prowl.

Leather and Suede textures have a field day on the runways and glasses do the same on the sunways.

Side Shields originally designed to provide added peripheral protection for such extreme sports as mountain climbing now also make a fashion statement.
