“To have something that is true vintage you must have something that was a true original,” explains Cazal creator Cari Zalloni. Roger Shyer, ESE president, adds, “These Cazal Legends remain an enormous influence on design and flair throughout our industry. With such a huge groundswell in worldwide demand for them we are happy to be a part of Cazal Fever once again.”
Cazal Legends come in a specially designed vintage case containing a cleaning cloth. A special Cazal Legends 607 themed t-shirt is available. As was the case in the 1980s, some consumers are dying the crystal-toned 607 a variety of colors and lining the lenses with personalized Swarovski crystals.
